Guide to Managing Health and Safety in Your Workplace

September 2017

In support of Small Business Advice Week here in the UK, we’ve put together this quick guide offering tips and guidance on how to better manage health and safety in your workplace.

Why should you manage workplace health and safety?

Accidents and work-related ill-health affect all types of workplaces and occupations.

Poor health and safety management can lead to high costs in terms of sick pay, absence and claims for compensation. SME’s can also find themselves facing criminal prosecution and harm to both business reputation and profitability.

The vast majority of occupational injuries, incidents and ill health are avoidable with good health and safety management.

However, good health and safety management can lead to an improved wider organisational health and safety culture.

Our range of workplace courses are designed to improve the skills and knowledge of your workforce and are tailored to suit your business needs.

Need extra advice on managing health and safety?

We understand that organisations face many challenges to overcome in protecting their workforce and achieving legal compliance.

Whether you need additional resources, specialist technical advice, or independent consultative support, we can work alongside you to help you to achieve your health and safety goals with our consultation services. Click below to find out more!

We're always there for our customers. 98% of our learners rated their overall experience as good or outstanding. We will always pride ourselves on our customer service. But don’t take our word for it, here is what our customers have to say
  • "I felt a divine prompting to seek my Boss's recommendation when considering another learning partner, and she graciously suggested Astutis. Choosing Astutis turned out to be a decision without regrets. Even when I didn't pass the RA on my first attempt, the Director's response to my inquiries boosted my confidence to request a remark, which was facilitated at no extra cost thanks to the Director's advocacy. Astutis provided unwavering support throughout my journey, from inception to completion. I eagerly anticipate enrolling in additional courses and pursuing a diploma with them."

  • "Nebosh need to be consistent with the marking, I felt the marking can be somehow subjective. Different marker graded same script differently. I failed the first time because someone(marker) didn't understand the guideline and the second marker did mentioned something different. Good study material and content."
