OSHCR Highlight How Health and Safety Consultants Are Sorely Needed by Employers
Health and safety in the workplace is of paramount importance and a legal requirement for duty holders. All employers are “to ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work” of their employees.
If you are a qualified health and safety consultant, the OSHCR register is perfect to increase your visibility and potentially increase your business enquiries.
The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 was put in place to, ensure employees are safe in their working environment and that employees are trained adequately and given the appropriate health & safety provisions at work.
Insurance companies may ask to see what health and safety management measures an employer has implemented prior to issuing an insurance policy. Should a claim be made against an employer or a workplace, the insurance company may review these documents again, to ensure the stated measures have been upheld. Note that, following a recent change in the law, employers will now only be liable for damages where negligence can be proved under common law.
Visibility as a health and safety consultant is very important, as employers and workplaces want to know where and how to find a consultant quickly and easily. If you are a qualified health and safety consultant, the OSHCR register is perfect to increase your visibility and potentially increase your business enquiries.
