Advice and guidance in health and safety at work is available from officers from the Regulation Team.
Complying with health and safety law can be difficult, especially for small businesses that may not have the necessary expertise in-house. The Safer Workplace, Better Business pack aims to help small businesses comply.
Based around the principles of the nationally recognised "Safer Food Better Business" pack produced by the Food Standards Agency to assist small catering businesses to meet European food hygiene requirements. The SWBB pack is similar, but aims to ensure that small businesses comply with requirements of current Health and Safety standards. Each section explains the employers duties, the actions required, and allows the employer to document policies, controls and procedures they implement within their business. Once completed the pack will enable the business to identify key hazards in their workplace, introduce suitable control measures and have a documented system available for inspection by enforcement officers.
The pack is available to download from the Torbay Council website by clicking here.
