Compliance Training: Essential for Every Business

When I started my business in January 2011, I noticed a significant lack of knowledge about workplace compliance policy among clients. This guide aims to provide essential information and helpful links on compliance.

Many entrepreneurs create fantastic products or services but are unaware of the numerous laws and legislation they must follow once they open their premises or hire employees. Understanding these laws and legislation is essential to ensure regulation compliance and avoid legal issues. Understanding these compliance requirements, including risk management, is crucial to avoid potential legal issues and ensure a safe working environment.

Did you know that PAT testing your appliances isn’t a legal requirement? However, you could face prosecution by the HSE, fines, or even imprisonment if someone is injured using an untested electrical appliance. Additionally, your insurance could be invalidated because PAT testing is part of your duty of care under the Electricity At Work Regulations 1989, which mandates policy compliance to ensure safety.

Compliance is complex. For example, it is mandatory to have emergency lighting in all commercial properties, HMOs, factories, and industrial buildings, as governed by The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. These come with specific testing regimes and logbook requirements. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in severe penalties and increased risk of accidents.

By staying informed and proactive about compliance, businesses can protect their employees, customers, and assets while fostering a culture of safety and responsibility.
