Fines for health and safety breaches……………
Who pays them? What are the costs? and most importantly how can you avoid them?
Fines for health and safety violations have risen to record levels in the UK over the past few years, and, as they can be considered a criminal offence both employers and employees are at risk of prosecution.
Fines can be high, between £5000-£20,000 at a magistrates court, but in crown court they can be unlimited and reputational damage to a company can have huge repercussions.
The best way to avoid any of this, is to have a robust health and safety system in the workplace and ensure your employees know their responsibilities.
