Whatever your motivation for choosing this guide, it will provide a sound basis for establishing a system or approach that is relevant to the individual business concerned.

Practical Health and Safety Management for Small Businesses will help you to identify all the potential hazards, offering advice on how best to look after your employees and how to manage Health and Safety in your business. It has been produced as a direct result of recent research, based on discussions with Health and Safety Inspectors, the Fire Authorities, Insurance representatives, Health and Safety professionals, and of course, Small Businesses themselves. Taking into account the practical issues faced in small business units, this guide takes you through all the main aspects of managing fire, health and safety step-by-step.

While following this guide cannot guarantee that your business now fully complies with all the relevant legislation that applies to it, it does enable you to demonstrate to others that you have made a reasonable attempt at bringing all these different elements together in a structured, holistic way.

Full of practical advice sample Site Plans and Checklists, photographs and industry-specific sections, Practical Health and Safety Management for Small Businesses will prove an invaluable guide for all those involved in running smaller business units, as well as those offering support, advice or guidance to SMEs.
