Just a word of advice to anyone running a small business, It is a legal obligation to have a Risk Assessment and Safety Statement for your Business . You also have a legal obligation to your staff to insure they have been properly trained to do the job you pay them to do. This training must be ongoing and refreshed on a regular basis.
Basically you have a duty of care to your employee`s and this also extends to members of the public you come in contact with.
Failure to comply with these requirements leaves both you as a Director of your Company and the Company itself open to prosecution by the Health and Safety Authority.
It also renders all Injury claims made by employees and the public extremely difficult for you or your Insurers to defend.
Issues such as these can bring even a successful company to its knees financially.
