Under The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999
Every employer shall make and give effect to such arrangements as are appropriate, having regard to the nature of his activities and the size of his undertaking, for the effective planning, organisation, control, monitoring and review of the preventive and protective measures.
This means that you must carry out risk assessments and training and continue to monitor them to ensure that the control measures are working and are still effective.
As with most legislation, this applies to every company regardless of its size. If you employ less than 5 persons you do not have to record the findings of these audits, inspections or surveys, but may have difficulty proving that they have been carried out if you do not.
Insurance companies are demanding more and more evidence of full health and safety systems - this is where we can help.
