“This is Health and Safety gone mad” we have all heard it and probably laughed about it but where would we be without it? In a time of blame and law suits, we depend on it – there to protect the worker and the business – designed to ensure that all employees are aware of their own safety and the safety of customers, contractors and the public.
Did you know that each year, over 200 people are killed in accidents at work and over one million people are injured? By providing the right training, you can keep your staff safe and healthy, and avoid the legal implications of accidents in your business.
