While a lot of offices, factories etc begin to wind down before Christmas – to some industries the festive period is the busiest time of the year and to others, December is just another month in an all-round busy year.  No matter what your business entails, SafetyWise and Peninsula’s dedicated Health & Safety Advice Team will be on hand 24 hours a day to assist you with any health & safety matters.

As the year comes to an end, it may be time for you to review your Risk Assessments before the year ahead.  Simply access them online and follow the step-by-step guidance giving you peace of mind knowing your regular tasks have been reviewed for 2011 and, should you have any change in procedure, this will be covered for 2012.  Our Advisors will also be on hand should you need any assistance. 

SafetyWise also provides online Accident Reports.  As retailers experience the festive rush (combined with the conditions underfoot) sometimes the unfortunate is unavoidable.  The Accident Report Summary will assist in trend analysis hopefully preventing some of the accidents from occurring in the future.

Finally, SafetyWise holds a full library of all documentation for you to download and print on demand.  With the inevitable delays to the postal service, this means you be able to have instant access to your bespoke documentation as well as Risk Assessment forms, Checklists, Visitors Records at the moment you need them.

The BusinessWise Helpdesk will be unavailable on the Bank Holidays, however the website and our Health & Safety Advice Line will be available 24 hours a day as usual.

May I take this opportunity to wish all Bottom Line Express readers a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous New Year.
