The guide offers several key features to help businesses navigate health and safety requirements:

Understanding Health and Safety Management

One of the primary objectives of the guide is to help businesses grasp the concept of health and safety management. It provides an overview of the responsibilities employers have in ensuring the well-being of their workers and others. This includes managing risks and taking practical steps to prevent harm.

Finding the Right Guidance

With numerous resources available, it can be challenging to identify the most relevant guidance for a specific workplace. The guide assists businesses in locating the appropriate guidance tailored to their industry. By accessing industry-specific associations, reputable organisations, and government websites, businesses can access reliable information on best practices and regulations.

Plan, Do, Check, Act Approach

The guide emphasises the Plan, Do, Check, Act approach as an effective method for managing health and safety. This approach simplifies the process by breaking it down into four steps.

Relevant Health and Safety Laws

Complying with health and safety legislation is essential for all employers. The guide highlights the importance of understanding and adhering to applicable laws and regulations. It encourages businesses to stay informed about any changes in legislation to ensure ongoing compliance.

The guide also provides guidance on addressing common workplace risks, offering specific advice tailored to individual workplaces.

To improve the online guide further, the HSE invites businesses to participate in a short survey. By providing feedback, businesses can contribute to the enhancement of the guide and the overall user experience.

Managing health and safety is a crucial aspect of running a responsible business. By utilising the HSE’s new online guide, businesses can gain a better understanding of their obligations, find appropriate guidance, and implement effective health and safety practices. By prioritising the well-being of employees and complying with regulations, businesses can create a safe working environment and protect the welfare of all individuals involved.
