The Health and Safety Law Poster
This poster must be displayed within the workplace, or you must provide the equivalent leaflet to your workers.
Do you need a health and safety law poster?
If anyone is employed you must provide the health and safety law poster information to them.
This can be done by displaying the poster somewhere so that your employees can easily read it.
Alternatively, you can provide staff with the information in an equivalent health and safety law leaflet.
What information does the health and safety law poster provide?
The information within the poster and leaflet explains British health and safety law.
It explains “What employers must do for you”, “What you must do” and “If there’s a problem”.
There is space at the bottom of the poster to complete who your health and safety representatives are plus any other contacts.
The health and safety representative section is where the competent person who is responsible for health and safety is formally named.
Do you need a competent person named on your health and safety law poster?
Like many businesses, a lot do not have the competence in-house or do not want to undertake this task themselves. You see a lot of employers don’t have the right skillset themselves or do not have the time because running a business itself is a mammoth task let alone dealing with all the intricacies of health and safety.
This is where sourcing the right help can be a weight lifted off your shoulders. But like anything it must be undertaken as a buyer beware exercise. There are lots of health and safety advisors and consultants in the marketplace, but you need to ensure you find the right one for you.
As an employer, managing health and safety is still your legal duty, so you need to find a company that understands you and your company.
Our team of consultants all have different disciplines so we will have the right fit for you and be able to meet your needs. We can prove competence and be able to help you meet the Government’s stringent laws.
