Why health and safety is now big business

3 January 2019

The demand for safety management services and solutions is soaring – this is why LCS is here.  To support business with legal compliance services in health and safety.

Recent changes to UK legislation has seen substantial penalties handed out, with million pound fines and even custodial sentences, as these fines are not covered by business insurance, a health and safety breach can be disastrous, especially for smaller businesses.

Fines aren’t the only cost. Between 2017 and 2018, an estimated 5.5 million working days were lost as a result of accidents and fatalities in UK workplaces. Staff absences, business disruption, cost of replacement, retraining, diversion of resources to incident investigation and impact on staff morale all contribute to the financial impact of one health and safety incident.

Accidents at work caused 137 deaths between 2017 and 2018, while an estimated 650,000 workers suffered non-fatal injuries, with organisations incurring considerable direct and indirect costs.

Often cases are long and drawn out over a number of years, as a result, clients experience great uncertainty for years after incidents occur, not knowing how it will conclude.

Even if a business can come back these from the financial costs, the brand impact can be devastating and may never recover. 

Since LCS was setup, we are becoming the market leader in Leadership, ISO and Property and Construction.  We really enjoy working with newly growing businesses who have hit the significant number 5, we also support large Corporations an PLCs, in driving performance and human behaviour in the work place.
