Are You Exempt From Health and Safety Inspections?

Back in September 2012 Vince Cable the Business Secretary announced that pubs and clubs along with other types of businesses could be exempt from health and safety inspections. The purpose of this initiative by the government is to reduce the amount of red tape faced by small businesses. 

From April this year businesses will only face health and safety inspections if they are operating in high-risk industries such as construction, or if they have had an incident or a track record of poor performance.

However this does not mean that as a business you should forget about health and safety and risk assessments. As an employer and service provider you have a duty of care towards your employees and customers under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

One area in your kitchen that must be regularly maintained and cleaned is your grease extract system. Call Ingot Services today to arrange your deep clean.
