Health and safety is crucial to protect the well-being of your staff and customers. Neglecting your health and safety measures could result in accident or prosecution. Irish business owners are subject to fines or imprisonment if they do not comply with the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work act 2005 and the Fire services Act 1981.
The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 states that “every employer shall ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the safety health and welfare at work of his or her employees”.
This legislation clearly sets out the responsibilities of all employers in relation to managing and conducting work activities in such a way, to protect the safety, health and welfare of employees, contractors and visitors to the workplace. ACS Construction & Facilities Management offer a full range of safety management services to assist companies in both achieving and maintaining compliance to this legislation.

ACS safety consultancy services will provide organisations with the advice and key legislative components in order to protect both the organisation and the employees.
These components include the requirements of the SHWW 2005 Act:
Section 18, Protective and preventative measures
