Welcome to Connect News


Welcome to the latest edition of Connect News. This week we would like to draw your attention to the importance of having health & safety objectives & targets. So many of us have goals for sales, marketing and other sections of the business, but not for our health & safety system. With the new year approaching, we would like to encourage all businesses to develop at least three objectives for this very important part of your business in the new year.

In the mean time, download this week's safety quote and view the video on managing noise in your workplace. Also - don't forget to check out our special for this month.

Thank you for your interest and have a safe week.

From the Team at Global Compliance Group
