Who Will Manage Your Health And Safety Obligations

All employers must appoint someone competent to help them meet their health and safety duties. A competent person is someone with the necessary knowledge, skills and experience to manage health and safety.  

You could appoint (one or a combination of) the following:

  • one or more of your workers/employees
  • yourself
  • someone from outside your business like a consultant

You probably manage most aspects of your business yourself, or with the help of your staff. But if you are not confident of your ability to manage all health and safety in-house, you may need some external help or advice.

Deciding what help you need is very important. Unless you are clear about what you want, you probably won’t get the help you need. Use the links below to help you ask the right questions:
