Health and Safety auditing – Legal requirements

The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 (the 2005 Act) requires employers to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the safety, health and welfare of his employees and to manage and conduct their work activities in such a way as to ensure their safety, health and welfare.

A health and safety management system (ISO 45001) is an excellent means of assisting an employer to manage these legal obligations while also taking advantage of the many benefits that an effective health and safety culture provides. Some managers falsely perceive health and safety as a drain on company resources and a prime target for cost savings. In fact, study after study shows that a safer workforce is a more productive workforce as people give back by investing more effort into a company that they feel is concerned about their health and well-being.
