Whether it’s creating a Health & Safety Policy, conducting a General Risk Assessment or helping to address shortcomings discovered by the regulator, our consultants draw on their combined total of 10 years’ experience to keep you compliant.
In order to determine whether or not your business is compliant, it is necessary to take a close
look at the potential hazards present in your workplace and how they are managed. That’s where
regular health and safety auditing comes in.
A health and safety audit is intended to ensure that any changes in the law are reflected in your policies and procedures. By frequently checking how you are performing, you can be satisfied that you are fulfilling your duty of care – and can implement changes in areas where you fall short.
Yes. Under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, employers must conduct
a risk assessment of their premises to understand potential causes of harm within the workplace
and take steps to reduce the likelihood of accidents and ill health.
However, it’s important to note that you are not expected to completely eliminate all risks. The purpose of a risk assessment is to take proportionate measures to ensure that risk is reduced to as low a level as possible. If an incident should occur, you will need to be able to demonstrate that you have taken all sensible precautions in order to avoid regulatory enforcement.
Yes. Under the Lagos State Safety Commission (LSC) Law 2011, all organisations – regardless of their
size or sector – must have a Health & Safety Policy in place. If you employ fewer than five
members of staff,
there’s no requirement to provide this information in written format (although it’s good
practice to do so).
A written Health & Safety Policy is the centrepiece of safety management, but there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ answer. Your policy should be specific to your business, detailing your aims and objectives and outlining your arrangements for ensuring they are achieved.
By law, all organisations must have a Health & Safety Policy. This acts as the basis for health
and safety management.
While it is not a legal requirement to have a Health & Safety Handbook, under the Lagos State Safety Commission (LSC) Law 2011, employers are required to provide employees with whatever instruction, information and training is necessary to ensure their safety. It is therefore good practice to communicate the contents of your Health & Safety Policy to staff, and one way of doing this is to create a handbook of important rules and procedures for employees to follow.
In this way, your Health & Safety Handbook can be regarded as a synopsis of your Health & Safety Policy.
There are compelling legal, moral and business reasons to adopt a proactive approach to health
and safety. Fundamentally, employers have a legal and ethical duty to protect the wellbeing of
those who may be affected by their activities and make sure employees return home safe and well.
it’s a well-known fact that health and safety performance has an impact on business performance.
Despite this, health and safety often sits outside of core business objectives. Compounding this issue is the challenge of getting employees to understand why health and safety is important and changing the perception that it’s a ‘boring’ sideline to other activities.
Health and safety can be complicated, costly and time consuming without the right support.
Help comes in different forms, from access to an advice line, to training courses, to on-site
assistance with risk assessments.
As well as being a legal requirement, receiving competent support from a trusted source will give you the confidence that you’re meeting your legal responsibilities and help you to turn complex legislation into a series of practical steps.
