Health and safety is a serious business and can have costly consequences if ignored or fudged.  Every year the HSE fine businesses millions of pounds for failing to protect their staff, clients or the public at large. 

Businesses and organisations have a duty of care and health and safety has such an important part to play in how that is achieved.  Yet health and safety isn't always taken seriously and can even be the target of ridicule for applying rules rigidly rather than using common sense.
