Policies, procedures, assessments and a host of other items are required for each of these resources.
It's difficult to pull all this together into a synchronised system because of the many details that need to be tracked and managed for each resource.
This is why today's businesses are ever more vulnerable to court actions.
Smart lawyers know full well that most businesses struggle to manage the intricacies of health & safety and that there's a profitable niche in health & safety actions.
All they need do is ask for proof and documentation, which is often non existant, not current or incomplete.
Using a simple management system can tie resources and systems together making it easy to keep health & safety complete, current and documented.
Look, you wouldn't trust your accounting to a paper system any more would you? Yet health & safety has the potential to be more damaging than inaccurate bookkeeping!
