Top tools help make safety easier

The British Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has produced
some free online tools that are available to help businesses carry out their
health and safety obligations successfully and easily.

Safestartup
Safestartup has been produced specifically for small and medium-sized
enterprises. It's a simple, easy-to-use guide on basic health, safety and
environmental information. The site, which is led by Alex, a friendly robot,
covers registering a business, health and safety policies, welfare, insurance,
reporting accidents and risk assessment, and it now contains information on
hazards and basic control measures for 60 different types of businesses and
occupations.

Risk Management Toolkit
IOSH has also produced a risk management toolkit which is specifically designed
to help small firms tackle risks in their workplaces in a user-friendly way.
The toolkit makes use of a series of work cards, checklists, info cards and
workbooks and provides a step-by-step approach to help you create your own
safety management system.

Occupational Health Toolkit
The occupational health toolkit can also help guide your firm on where to find
expert advice on some of the biggest causes of workplace absence: stress and
musculoskeletal disorders.
