This report summarises a project to establish the needs of the business support network in giving health and safety advice to their clients. Unless small businesses are in a particularly hazardous industry, or fall foul of health and safety through an accident for which they are responsible, they tend not to think about health and safety. The wide range of professionals working with small businesses tend not to mention health and safety unless they have a specialist knowledge of the subject. This report examines how to give non specialists both the confidence and the desire to make their clients aware of health and safety, and the impact it has on their business.
Some of these research reports are very large. For information about expected download times please see our FAQs pages.
