Antrim Enterprise Agency in conjunction with Northern Ireland Safety Group and Mallusk Enterprise Park are hosting a free seminar on Small Business Safety – the must do steps to achieving compliance with health and safety law on Monday, June 2 at 8.45am at Antrim Enterprise Agency.
Aimed at small business and organisations within the voluntary/social enterprise centre, the seminar will:
∙ Show you how to draw up a H & S policy (and provide a template)
∙ Show you how to complete a risk assessment
∙ Show you how to actively manage risks
∙ Help you manage fire safety
∙ Show you what you need to become legally compliant
∙ Point you in the right direction to get further help.
Jennifer McWilliams, Antrim Enterprise Agency, said: “Statistics show that small businesses have twice the number of accidents compared to large ones. Ensuring good health and safety does not have to be complicated, expensive or time consuming. It is definitely not just another extra burden on an employer and achieving compliance for many is a straightforward process.
“This seminar aims to provide practical solutions to encourage and support small business in their efforts to provide a healthy and safe working environment regardless of their activity or employment numbers.”
The seminar which commences at 8.45am and will finish 12.45 with light bites, will be facilitated by
a number of leading H&S experts in their fields.
Interactive and practical, the workshop is open to all SMEs. To book a place, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or book online at www.nisg.org.uk
