Health and safety guidance made simpler for small firms


Health and Safety has always been a problem for small businesses as it can be costly and time consuming keeping up with all legislation, but the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has launched an online ‘Health and Safety Toolbox’ as part of a package of new guidance aimed at small businesses who are seen to be low risk. The Toolbox will make it faster and simpler for small firms to find relevant information that applies to their industry, so they can manage health and safety issues themselves, without the need for health and safety consultants and without the burden of large bills to pay for their services.  Employment minister Mark Hoban said: “Small and low risk businesses should be focusing their time on growing and becoming a success not having to waste precious time and money on unnecessary bureaucracy.”
