Are you taking health and safety seriously?

In all businesses, the underlying aim of good health and safety management is to make sure that people's safety is not put at risk and that their health is not damaged.

Remember, attention to health and safety is not just about obeying the law and being socially responsible. It also makes good business sense.

Many businesses in the office refurbishment and office fit out industry such as Saracen Interiors take health and safety very seriously.

Action on health and safety can:

  • reduce your accident losses;
  • cut absenteeism;
  • improve your profit and loss statement;
  • help you become more efficient;
  • improve your business profile with customers, clients, insurers, enforcers etc.

The key to ensuring the safety and health of young people in the workplace is having a good health and safety management system which protects everyone. Young people can be at particular risk because they lack experience and trained judgement and thus they need good advice, information and supervision.

All businesses should consider meeting the standards and becoming certified in the following which improve health and safety standards as well as ensure a more environmentally friendly approach.


ISO9001 - Quality management system

ISO 14001 - Effective environmental management


Leading office refurbishment company Saracen Interiors has implemented both of the above systems and is fully certified. As joint managing director Michael Page comments:

"When it comes to Health & Safety, only 100% will do. Apart from ISO 9001 & ISO 14001, Saracen Interiors is CHAS Accredited. This means that we're independently assessed to ensure our Health & Safety procedures meet national standards. We don't take any risks with our people or our clients"

Organisations have experienced the many benefits of incorporating these environmental and health and safety measures into the workplace.

  • By reducing waste and using fewer raw materials, costs are reduced.
  • Fewer costs give companies a competitive advantage.
  • By managing environmental issues before a problem arises, companies benefit from reduced liability.
  • Companies registered to ISO 14001 set a clear example of being responsible which leads to customer trust.
  • Companies that are environmentally responsible benefit from an improved public image. This can be used to benefit the company from a marketing perspective.

These systems not only improve health and safety but also improve the efficiency of the business! small changes can make a large impact.
