advice from qualified experts

Aspreys health and safety Consultants can provide your business with practical guidance on HR activities that are related to Health and Safety.

Legislation and Industry Guidance

It is important to know how Health and Safety workplace legislation applies to your workplace. Aspreys can guide through the minefield of civil and criminal law that governs Health and Safety as to ensure that you protect your workers and others from getting hurt or ill through work. Our experts can also support you with the legislation that is relevant to your industry. They can also advise you of any forthcoming changes in the law and signpost you on where to go for more advice and guidance.

Online Webinar Training

Everyone who works for you needs to know how to work safely and without risk to their health. This includes contractors and self-employed people. Aspreys can explain what you, as an employer, may need to do to ensure your employees receive the appropriate level of health and safety training. We can give advice on who may need training, what form the training may take and facilitate this training via webinars if required.

Policy Formation

If you are a SME with 5 or more employees then the law stipulates that you must have a policy for managing health and safety. It is also essential that you sign and review your policy regularly too. Aspreys can make Health and Safety a simple task for you and create a policy that suits your business needs and one which complies with the Health and Safety at Work Act. Our experts can also review and update any current policy in place to make sure that it is robust and legally compliant.

    All companies must offer a workplace pension scheme by law and are not allowed to encourage or force employees to “opt out”.

    There are certain employee criteria that need to be met to qualify:

    • Classed as a ‘worker’
    • Aged between 22 and state
    • Earn at least £10,000 per annum
    • You usually work in the UK
    • Zero hours contracts are often used by employers that require flexibility in their workforce, for example where the need for workers is unpredictable.
    • Under a zero hours contract, the employer is not obliged to offer the worker a set number of hours. Depending on how the contract is drafted, the worker may or may not have an obligation to accept any work that is offered.
    • The employment status of an individual on a zero hours contract will depend on the nature of the relationship between the parties. When drafting such a contract, the employer must be clear about whether or not it intends the worker to have employee status, and should ensure that what is set out in the contract reflects the reality of what is expected from the worker.

    Almost all workers are entitled to 5.6 weeks (28 days) of paid annual leave each year. This also includes:

    • Agency workers
    • Zero hour contracts
    • Irregular hours

    Bank holidays do not have to be given as paid annual leave, however an employer can choose to include these within the 5.6 weeks (28 days)

    Whilst there is no legal requirement to undertake appraisal discussions, we recommend this is completed on a 6 monthly or annual basis to retain engagement and to get the most from your employees

    • A staff handbook brings together and summarises an employer’s policies, procedures and practices. Creating an effective handbook can help the employer to communicate its rules consistently to all employees.
    • Staff handbooks should communicate how issues such as harassment, discrimination, absence, family-friendly rights and other HR matters are dealt with by the employer.
    • When creating a staff handbook, the employer should understand the legal implications of making the handbook, or parts of it, contractual.
