Health and Safety

Today, health and safety compliance is an integral part of business within the UK. Regardless of industry type or size, every company is affected by health and safety regulations, which impose duties on employers as well as employees.

The Health and Safety at Work Act etc1974 places a duty on every employer to ensure the Health, Safety and Welfare of all their employees. This is further endorsed by the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (1999), which underlines the need for formal arrangements and policies to manage the occupational health and safety of all individuals in a place of work.

HSEQ can visit your business to discuss your individual requirements. We will audit existing procedures and  practises to evaluate them against applicable legislation.


Possessing a written Health and Safety Policy is a requirement under section 2 of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, applicable specifically to organisations employing five or more employees.

The act states that you must have a written H&S Policy statement and that this must be reviewed and revised on a regular basis to account for any changes in working procedures.

If your company has 5 or more employees you have a legal requirement to have a written Safety Policy.


HSEQ can help by providing a systematic approach to the management of safety within your organisation.  We can produce a comprehensive H&S Management System which will ensure compliance with current legislation. It follows the HSEs (HSG65) document, which outlines a framework for successful health and safety management.
