The importance of good health and safety

Following health and safety best practice is not only vital for managing and minimising risks to ensure a safe environment, but it's also essential for adhering to government regulations.

In addition to the danger to public health, there are large fines in place for non-compliance, alongside risks to the success and reputation of an organisations' business. It is therefore essential that you, and the people you work with, are equipped with the right skills and knowledge, and to the standards we set as the UK's only chartered body for environmental health.
