Haulage and Distribution
Road transport is subject to more legal issues than almost any other industry. As a result, employers have a number of clearly defined statutory duties and responsibilities towards their employees and the public. These duties and responsibilities are set out in a number of legal Regulations and Acts of Parliament:
- The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and Management Regulations 1999
- The Road Traffic Act 1988
- The Misuse of Drugs Act 1971
For businesses operating within a safety sensitive industry, screening and testing for drugs and alcohol use amongst the workforce is a simple and obvious way to protect their workforce and the public. This serves to address and reduce the risk of accident and injury.
Many occupations sit within the Public Sector, meaning numerous occupational and environmental hazards are faced.
Occupational ill health and injuries can be common place within Manufacturing without proper assessment of possible hazards. Injuries can be caused by manual handling along with slips, trips and falls. Noise induced hearing loss, dermatitis and musculoskeletal injuries are some of the main causes of ill health (Source: HSE).
The Retail Industry is a major employer in the UK employing around 3 million people. Injuries can be caused by manual handling, and many employees can suffer from musculoskeletal disorders (e.g. from working at checkouts or till points). Slips and trips are also common, being the most reported injury to members of the public (Source: HSE). Assessing any work-related hazards reduces risk of injury/ill health.
Designed to identify the key issues affecting your business, our Occupational Health & Wellbeing Needs Assessment provides you with an evidence-based platform upon which to plan a targeted occupational health programme tailored to your needs.
