Welcome to the Safeti Podcast
In this episode, we take a look at the challenges of H&S law and operating a small business. We chat to the very knowledgeable Carl Mannion CMIOSH MCIOB of Better Safety. Carl reveals what he has learnt in the past year since venturing out to build a consultancy. This two-part series will give you a realistic snapshot of Health & Safety regulation and service provision within a rapidly changing UK economy.
In this Episode, we talk about the danger of chasing the ‘next big thing’. We also talk about the rise of convenience HSE services and the changing landscape of training & learning. This insight into H&S for small businesses will be valuable for business owners & operators and HSE professionals alike.

2 thoughts on “‘Health and Safety is failing Small Business | Part 2’ | with Carl Mannion”
So when did the management of health and safety regulation of 1994 get repealed?
Last time I checked the owner or CEO of any businesses large and small is responsible for implementing HSE so surely the title of this article should read management is failing in implementing HSE in small businesses?
Hi Donald, the title of the podcast is just the motion for discussion. Through his first hand experience working with SME’s, Carl is proposing that we are not doing enough to help small businesses meet their obligations. Of course, there are many other factors, aside from HSE, that ultimately affect decision-making in a competitive business environment. Particular with smaller businesses. Please have a listen to Carl’s arguments and let us know your thoughts, thanks
