Signposts for health and safety

Date of publication:

A compilation of films for small businesses.

Originally broadcast on BBC2 as 10 half-hour programmes, these films were previously available from HSE Books in VHS format.

The content has been updated as much as possible to reflect for example, recent changes to smoking in the workplace and noise exposure limits. However, there remain a number of references to organisations and individuals that have changed over the years but these do not detract from the main health and safety messages.

A variety of small businesses show how they have successfully dealt health and safety issues.

Each episode also includes a health and safety surgery where an expert gives advice to a business owner on how to tackle a particular problem.
