Ten Point Plan for Health & Safety Compliance

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has published a ‘ten point plan’ for businesses for protecting the health and safety of workers and others. The key recommended actions are:

  • Register a new business with the appropriate authority (HSE or your local authority);
  • Take out employers’ liability insurance and display the certificate as required by law;
  • Make sure you have someone competent to help you comply with health and safety regulations;
  • Decide on your health and safety policy (how you will manage health and safety issues);
  • Carry out an assessment of risks (potential dangers and appropriate precautions to take) and act on the findings;
  • Provide basic welfare facilities, such as washing and toilet facilities;
  • Provide appropriate health and safety training for employees;
  • Consult with workers on health and safety matters;
  • Display the required health and safety law poster or give workers a leaflet containing the information; and
  • Report as required any work-related accidents, diseases or dangerous incidents.
