Risk management consultancy Santia has reminded small businesses in Scotland that they face a challenge when it comes to ensuring the health of their staff.

The firm has urged companies to remember the details of health and safety, including elements such as risk assessments and policy statements, reports the Aberdeen Press and Journal.

Santia consultant Andrew Regel reminded people of the consequences of staff absences.

"It’s essential that small businesses with only a handful of employees are really getting the most from their staff, and having just one employee absent for an extended period of time could have serious consequences," Mr Regel advised.

He continued by saying that health and safety training should be in place regardless of a company's number of workers.

This guidance follows an announcement by employment minister Chris Grayling, who confirmed that the Myth Busters Challenge Panel has been launched in an effort to explore misuse of health and safety regulations.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801351046-ADNFCR
