Identify / Manage Risks

As a tourism business owner, you know that keeping your visitors and workers safe is of the utmost importance.

But have you considered the importance of risk management in achieving this goal?  At the heart of all Safety Management Systems lies risk management.

By partnering with Stay Safe, we’ll help you identify the specific risks that are present in your business and work with you to put effective controls in place.

This will help prevent any potential harm to your workers, yourself, your visitors, and anyone else who may be impacted by your business.

We understand that navigating the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 requirements can be overwhelming.  That’s why we’re here to provide guidance and support, ensuring that your safety management system complies with all legal requirements.

By prioritising risk management, you can rest easy knowing that your tourism business is operating safely and securely, and that your visitors and employees are protected.
