High employee turnover and unique safety challenges create significant HR and H&S risks in the manufacturing sector.
Rather than allowing these risks to escalate into expensive and time-consuming issues, it is better to adopt a proactive approach towards maintaining compliance.
Complete our short questionnaire to receive a free Manufacturing Sector Risk Report, containing bitesize guidance which is tailored to the specific needs of your organisation.
This covers the key compliance areas which can leave you exposed to employment tribunal claims and safety prosecutions, such as recruitment and selection, disciplinary and grievance processes, documentation and risk assessments, fire safety, and training.
Why does manufacturing need HR and H&S support?
Statistics from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) show that the average fine issued to manufacturing firms in 2020/21 was £135,000. Typically, these fines are issued due to insufficient risk assessments, unsafe systems of work, and a lack of proper training. In March 2022, a manufacturing company received a £200,000 fine after an incident was attributed to unsuitable and insufficient risk assessments.
In addition to this, no organisation is exempt from the possibility of an employment tribunal claim for discrimination, breach of contract, or unfair dismissal. Considering the typically large and diverse nature of manufacturing workforces, it is advisable to adopt a proactive approach towards avoiding these claims.
