Measures such as tax breaks for therapies and gym memberships could help to encourage firms to provide health and safety support, research shows.

A study by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has found that most decision-makers in small or medium-sized businesses believe that reduced employer liability premiums for effective health and safety management would benefit their firms.

More than two-thirds of those questioned also believe that better access to high-quality health and safety guidance would be advantageous.

IOSH chief executive Rob Strange OBE said: "Firms wanting to do the right thing and support their workers should be helped to do so. Good health and safety is good for business and for tax-payers too!"

Jane White, research and information services manager at IOSH, recently advised that firms can benefit from hiring an external health and safety expert.

She explained that firms should adopt effective health and safety measures to guarantee that they comply with the law and develop a good reputation.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801362078-ADNFCR
