The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) is pleased to support this important event.
It is a fundamental right of each of the 1.8 million people at work in Ireland to go to work and to return home to their families and communities without having suffered any impact or injury to their safety and wellbeing. The HSA is here to support employers, employees and the self-employed to ensure this goal is achieved.
Small businesses in particular can perceive serious difficulties in meeting their obligations. At the HSA, we recognise that there is a general perception amongst small businesses that health and safety management is an unnecessary burden, something that really only applies to bigger organisations. However, the management of employee health and safety applies to all workplaces, regardless of size. In fact, as an employer, no matter how big or small your business is, you are legally responsible for yourself, your employees and any other person that may be affected by your work activities.
Take the opportunity to meet with representatives of the HSA in an informal environment. Discover how effective management of employee safety and health can add value to your business….whether it’s big or small. See our new online risk assessment toolkit designed specifically with the needs of small businesses in mind.
We look forward to meeting you there!
