Your Essential Health & Safety Handbook and key documents
Often a business knows their documentation and health and safety Handbook are either out of date or ineffectual as they are full of jargon and hard to follow. But just do not have the time or resources to get the job done. HR Resources offers a cost effective solution for small businesses and fellow professionals. Compliant to current law and best practice they are all done for you – ready for you to just bespoke and implement into your business. Saving your valuable time and money.
I designed the Health and Safety Compliance in a Box at the request of my clients to work with our Employee Handbook from our HR Resource; HR Compliance in a Box -click for more info.
Combined they lay the solid document and legal foundation to help you ensure a productive, safer, healthier and legally compliant working environment.
Your Health and Safety Compliance Box provides you with easy access to a core health and safety policies and procedures within a Health and Safety Handbook. And the key template documents, including a template Risk Assessment form to start implementing health and safety within your business.
Why include health and safety as part of HR Resources?
HSE research highlights there are 2 key elements to help achieve a safe and healthier working environment. People and process. Drill down the people element and numerous research reports highlight the importance of competency and engagement to achieve a safe and healthy working environment.
This is why when I help a businesses with their HR, I will always ask for their Health and Safety Handbook so I can align the people side of their business (HR contracts and Employee Handbook from our HR Compliance in a Box) to support their current Health and Safety policies and procedures.
I often found however Health and Safety Handbooks that were; out of date, incomplete, or none existent. Or even more worrying legally incorrect. Therefore I developed Health and Safety Compliance in a Box to meet this business need.
The Health and Safety Compliance box will save you time and money in developing a similar comprehensive health and safety resource within your business. I have done the work for you at a fraction of the cost of undertaking similar research and work internally. You then just need to implement into your business, which I can continue to help you with.
