Managing risk is a key element in both safeguarding your business assets and achieving savings on your insurance premiums. How? By demonstrating your compliance with health and safety and HR legislation and avoiding the costly consequences of not having the proper procedures in place.
The world of health and safety is continually changing and employers face a mountain of regulations, guidance and best practice examples when managing workplace risk.
The ability of your business to cope with and recover from a major incident could be critical to its survival. This may not necessarily involve your insurers, and may not even directly affect your premises. Increasingly nowadays suppliers, customers, banks and auditors will want to know that your business has assessed all the risks it faces and has a credible plan for survival in the event of a disaster.
If you're new to risk management or unsure of what you need to do why not think about trying the Healthcheck Tool ? A tool to help you understand and measure how well you are doing at managing the risks in the workplace and to benchmark your progress on managing risk.
