Health And Safety Fines Soar


The Housekeeping Store 06th June 2017

There has never been a better time to search for commercial cleaning products, as a new clamp down on health and safety means businesses are more at risk of fines than ever.
Law firm BLM revealed to the BBC that since the law changed a year ago to punish businesses for health and safety breaches in a way that is proportionate to their size, fines have gone up considerably.

Large health and safety breaches, such as the £5 million fine given to Merlin Entertainments following the highly publicised Smiler Rollercoaster accident at Alton Towers, represented higher fines being handed out than ever before.

Sixteen riders were injured, some with life changing injuries, in the accident. The fine would have been £2.5 million higher if the organisation had not pleaded guilty.
There were over 18 fines issued that were over £1 million last year, BLM revealed, which compared with just two in 2015.
Now companies can be fined up to £20 million for corporate manslaughter and £10 million for health and safety offenses. Businesses need to have a turnover of over £50 million in order to be liable for these top fines, however.

While the construction sector had received the most in fines, the leisure industry also featured highly.
Health and safety breaches can include food hygiene and you must make sure that food sold is safe to eat and display your food hygiene rating, that you will have received from a local inspector.
