Understanding Health and Safety For Your Small Business
Start Up, Sole Trader, Self Employed or a Small Business?
Employing less than 5 people means your health and safety requirements will look different from those of larger companies, but this doesn’t make them any less important.
You will still need to consider what could be a risk to workers, the public and you. Understanding what the risks are and the level of hazard they present is key in making sure your workplace, whether that is at a permanent address or out in the field is as safe as it can be.
To understand the risks, you need to assess them. This is done in the form of a risk assessment, a living document that you update and add to as your business grows and changes. It is a simple but essential document that lists the risks and how much of a hazard they are.
Types of things you need to consider are:
• Electrical safety
• Fire risks
• Manual handling
• Slips and trips
• Working at height
Do you need a Risk Assessment if you are a Sole Trader?
Since October 2015 if you can be sure that your work doesn’t pose a risk to other workers or the public, then the health and safety law doesn’t apply. But you need to be clear that there are no risks.
Do you need a Health & Safety Policy and Risk Assessment if you run a Small Business?
For a business with less than five employees the HSE doesn’t require you to write down your risk assessment or health and safety policy. All that is required of many businesses is to make sure people are protected from harm caused by the work activities.
However it may be beneficial to have a written risk assessment to help you identify areas of risk, communicate your controls with workers and may aid you in the event of an incident.
