The Importance of Health and Safety in the Workplace

What is ISO 45001?

ISO 45001 is the internationally recognised standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems. Thousands of companies are certified to ISO 45001 to ensure that their company is performing the best health and safety practices to reduce accidents. Being committed to a safe workplace should be a priority for your company to protect the well-being of your employees and follow government legislations.

Following Legislations

Not only is protecting your employees in the workplace morally correct, but it also avoids your company from getting costly fines for not following government guidelines. Hundreds of companies across the UK are fined due to poor health and safety measures and some companies even have to shut down. ISO 45001 introduces health and safety measures to ensure you are compliant with legislations which can save you money, this is why it is the perfect investment for your company.

Falling is the number one workplace accident however, manual handling, being hit by a moving object, being hit by transport, and falling from a height is also common but can be so easily decreased by implementing the standard.

Improving Efficiency

With fewer accidents occurring with the guidance of ISO 45001, fewer employees are off sick due to workplace accidents. More staff means that more work is being completed and staff are being more productive whilst remaining safe. The certification also proves to stakeholders that your business is a safe place to work which opens more doors for tendering winning you more business.
