Slips, trips and falls are on the rise – The Compliance Genie helps prevent workplace accidents before they happen.
In the UK, trips, slips, and falls are common causes of occupational accidents and injuries. Over a third of all workplace accidents, according to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), include slips, trips, and falls, and they have become more frequent in recent years.
These accidents may result in injury, ranging from minor scrapes and bruises to more severe wounds, including fractured bones and head trauma. Additionally, they may lead to substantial financial expenses for the business, such as lost productivity, compensation claims, and fines. In the UK, companies are required by law to protect the health and safety of their workers, and failure to do so may result in a Health and Safety Executive (HSE) prosecution.
The good news is that slips, trips, and falls can be avoided. Be-Safe’s Compliance Genie is a tool that can assist businesses in adhering to UK health and safety regulations and preventing such mishaps from occurring.
A cloud-based software solution, one of Be-Safe’s Compliance Genie’s primary features is its risk assessment tools, which enable businesses to pinpoint and evaluate potential dangers or hazards for their employees, including slips, trips, and falls.
Once the risks have been identified, The Compliance Genie offers a variety of resources to assist businesses in putting the right plans in place to reduce these risks per HSE rules. This could entail delivering instruction on safe practices, implementing safety procedures, co-ordinating training, and issuing safety equipment such as warning signs and non-slip flooring mats.
The Compliance Genie offers a variety of other capabilities in addition to its risk assessment tools to assist businesses in preventing accidents and injuries and ensuring HSE compliance. These include templates and checklists, the ability to centralise training resources, and a reporting feature to monitor and record compliance efforts.
Employers can use Be-Safe’s Compliance Genie to proactively address the risks of slips, trips, and falls, reducing mishaps and injuries and ensuring adherence to UK health and safety regulations.
