Do you know the types of safety risks which are present in your workplace?

A continuing theme in the Health & Safety Executive Annual reports is a high number of serious injuries and fatalities recorded which could have been avoided had the employer been aware of, and made provision for, the risk to which they were exposing employees.

Interaction with transport at work and falling from height accounted for almost half of all workplace deaths. Both of these workplace risk areas are easily managed if employers, and employees, are prepared to invest time in doing things right.

Make sure that all your workplace activities are properly Risk Assessed.
