Health and safety tools for business

A new package of health and safety tools for business advisers and their
clients will be unveiled at the RoSPA Safety and Health at Work Congress
2003.The package comprises:

- an interactive CD-ROM on health and safety to help businesses learn from the
experience of others, using real life documentary case studies to set the
business case why small businesses should have appropriate and sustainable
health and safety management systems in place;

- a benchmarking tool (Benchmark Index), to help businesses improve their health
and safety performance, accessible by a business adviser with their client and
offering an objective view of how they are currently performing and, as a
result, helping to identify where future improvement activities should be
focused; and

- a managed visit programme, to support the interactive tools, which enables
small businesses to visit larger host companies which have tackled a wide range
of health and safety issues, thereby sharing and promoting good practice.
