Taking Care of Business is a new wide ranging initiative being undertaken by the Health and Safety Authority to Support and Assist Small Business to deal with health and safety in their workplaces.

The primary aim of Taking Care of Business is:

“To make safety and health contribute in a manner that is tailored specifically for small business so enabling it to reduce the incidence of accidents and ill health; to motivate workers and maintain their involvement and to assist the overall success of the business.” 

If you are finding it difficult to understand what your obligations are to comply with workplace health and safety in your business and in need of practical guidelines and assistance to get you started then 'Taking Care of Business' can make it simpler for you.

As part of the Taking Care of Business initiative for small business, the Authority has launched BeSMART.ie a free, easy to use, online resource which will allow you to carry out risk assessments and develop a safety statement for free for your business.
