how healthy is your H&S?

Are you confident that your firm is complying with Heath and Safety obligations?  In our experience, its an area which is often overlooked, leaving firms and their employees potentially exposed.  Its another one of those “wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat” areas for law firms bosses.

The obligations on employers are clear.  The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 2.2.c. requires the provision of “such information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety at work of his employees”.  For most practices, this involves external expertise and training to skill-up managers.

If this is a gap you are concerned about, Legal Edge have manage secured discounted rates from Theseus Safety Training Limited for their “Managing safely” courses.   This is a four day course designed to get managers up to speed on the practical actions they need to take to effectively handle health and safety in their teams and comply with their legal requirements.

The next course runs from 31 Aug – 3rd Sept.  If you’d like more information, please contact Bob Barlow, director at Theseus on 01782 770 999 and quote “legal edge” to access the discounts.  But be quick, the closing date for this course date is next Tuesday 24th August.
