Health and safety in facilities management: tailored solutions that grow with your business 

Health and Safety in Facilities Management

For businesses and individuals working in facilities management, the implementation of effective health and safety systems is imperative. Not only does this protect staff and contractors, but it ensures the safety of visitors too. That said, identifying and mitigating the risk of health and safety issues in facilities management is no small task; it involves the assessment of your business’ premises, tools, equipment and resources.

There are, of course, numerous health and safety challenges for facilities managers to overcome. In addition to general business requirements and risk assessments, certain organisations must comply with industry-specific regulations, as stated by the UK government’s Health and Safety at Work act. 

Should a business fail to comply with government regulations, the repercussions are often substantial. No matter the size or nature of your organisation, investing in high-quality health and safety management resources is a must.
