Throughout the industry different companies are legally bound to comply with the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974, and all its statutory provisions along with the Equality Act 2010. New Regulations and Codes of Practice are impacting every company throughout the UK.
As an employer you must identify whether your company complies and whether your premises and facilities need to have reasonable adjustments implemented to ensure people with disabilities have equal opportunities in applying for and staying in work, and when visting the premises where the premises is a service provider. This can be undertaken by means of a Disability Access Audit.
- Health and Safety at Work Act 1974
- The Equality Act 2010
- Undertake a detailed Disibility Access Audit of your business operation and benchmark compliance
- Identify and quantify all areas for improvement and provide practical recommendations for minimum compliance and good working practices
- Prepare a detailed action plan to ensure minimum compliance within practical time constraints
Following the Disibility Access Audit, we can also assist with the development, maintenance and implementation of required safety management systems to meet your company’s needs.
The Government Equalities Office has developed a series of guides entitled "Equality Act 2010: What do I need to know?" These guides are free online and outline the key changes in the law made vt the act that affect employers and service providers.
