Health and safety tips

A radical revamp of the way small businesses in Yorkshire and the Humber can access advice about health and safety online has been launched.

The new Health And Safety Toolbox is the latest in a package of online guidance, bringing together in one place everything a small, low-risk business could need to manage health and safety.
Written with busy firms in mind, it makes it easy to find relevant guidance on specific risks with a few clicks of the mouse.

The package of guidance, developed by the Health And Safety Executive (HSE) with the support of businesses, will help small business owners and employers avoid wasting precious time reading what they don't need to, spending money on unnecessary bureaucracy or hiring costly consultants.

David Snowball, of HSE, said: "Employers in smaller, lower-risk businesses can feel daunted by what health and safety law requires.

"It doesn't have to be an onerous task and we will be pointing them to the Toolkit for all the advice they need."
