Health and safety guidance for business

Business guidance

Free guidance is available on the Health and Safety Executive's (HSE's) website. Small businesses in particular may find their example risk assessments useful covering workplaces such as offices, local shops, food businesses and warehouses.

If you are a new business visit the getting started section of the HSE site, which provides a useful checklist. There is also a list of frequently asked health and safety questions as well as tips on health and safety made simple

We can provide basic further advice if we are your enforcing authority (most consumer service industry workplaces such as retail leisure and non public sector offices).
