Performance Indicators

Business Link has an online tool to help small businesses with health and safety law.

Good health and safety practice can have a positive impact on your insurance claims and also improves your reputation with customers, the local community and your employees.

Online Self Assessment Tool

This self-assessment tool is designed to give a measure of how well you are handling health and safety issues and will: 

  • help you to understand how well you identify and manage health and safety hazards
  • provide you with targeted guidance to help you improve your management of health and safety
  • enable you to compare your performance anonymously with other businesses across sectors and sizes

It is designed to help premiums for Employer's Liability Compulsory Insurance reflect businesses health and safety record.

The indicator should take about 15 minutes to complete.

It works by asking a series of questions on the top 10 key hazards that most small to medium-sized businesses encounter and how often these accidents or incidents occur. A score out of 10 is calculated for each - with 10 the best possible result and 0 the poorest.

However, it is not a comprehensive audit tool. You have a legal duty to consider the whole range of risks that your workers may face while at work. It does not deal with special hazards faced by particular industries.

The performance indicator was developed by Business Link, with the Health and Safety Executive, the Association of British Insurers and the British Insurance Brokers Association.

It is on an external website and Torfaen County Borough Council is not responsible for its content.
