Why your business needs Chamber HS

Every business, even the self-employed, needs a person responsible for health and safety. If you employ five or more persons you must, by law, have a written Health and Safety Policy, although this may not be enough to ensure compliance with the Health & Safety at work etc Act 1974.

The person responsible for health and safety within your business is also responsible for contractors, service engineers and any member of the public who may be affected by your work activities. Unless you are compliant the risks are high.
