Health and Safety

BW Virtual Office Services find that clients often grow to a certain point and then realise they haven't really focused on health and safety enough.

Did you know that as your business hits that crucial 5 employee level, it is a legal requirement for employers to write a health and safety policy.  Rather than avoiding it or feeling depressed about the sinking feeling we all get when talking about health and safety, we recommend you get started with the process.  Some of the first few steps are not as daunting as you think, and starting to think about/talk about health and safety will get your plans focussed on getting your place of work up to scratch.

Health and safety will mean making a few changes and spending a bit of money, but it is important to remember that if your business needs to claim from the insurance companies, being shown to have failed in your health and safety duties will mean that there is no insurance pay out.  Like general maintenance, it is important to pay out a little here and there along the way, to avoid losing your company over an accident that could have been avoided.

We have a helpful contact that we would recommend for health and safety - they can take all the pain out of planning the changes you need to improve one step at a time.

We have a really helpful contact for health and safety work.

I have never used a bookkeeper before so I was a bit apprehensive. Working with BW has been the best decision we have made recently. I knew we needed help with behind the scenes work and this has been a real relief.

I learned more about how to direct my business in 20 minutes talking to Jen at BW Bookkeeping than in 4 years of meetings with my accountant.

We have been a client of BW Bookkeeping since 2017 and rely on them for a range of services. They helped us change from a sole trader to a limited company and handle all our banking and VAT.
