Employers have a general duty of care to provide safe conditions in workplaces. Carrying out health and safety audits and publishing the findings to employees are essential steps in ensuring safe conditions.
We currently carry out safety inspections for a number clients across the uk, once an inspection or audit is carried out the client receives a full written report, anything which we feel needs immediate action we will inform the client whilst on site.
