Some small businesses cannot afford to employ people to monitor health and safety, it has been claimed.

This could impact the effectiveness of safety signage in workplaces, with a representative from Bibby Consulting & Support noting that many smaller companies do not have the capacity to consider how health and safety law changes make a difference to their operations.

Michael Slade, managing director at the group, said that, due to the recession, people are trimming back their business costs, meaning that they possibly cannot afford to spend a lot of money on risk-related issues.

Mr Slade advised firms to take note of health and safety legislation changes even if it is not going to affect them.

Earlier this month, Bibby Consulting & Support released a new report, finding that many firms are unaware of the health and safety legislation that they must comply with.

Also, the research found that many do not know the ramifications of non-compliance.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801300454-ADNFCR
