Information Bites

What are Information Bites?   
M.E.L. (Health & Safety) Consultants Ltd provide our clients with regular updates regarding changes in legislation, prosecution cases, newly published guidance, updates in industry best practice or any other matter that may be of interest relating to the management of health and safety in the workplace.  We distribute this information in the form of emailed 'info bites' that can be used as a basis for  informal internal training or be distributed amongst the workforce to ensure employees stay abreast matters of safety and health.

The information bites we send out can also now be accessed below by simply selecting the picture or text relating to the topic of your choice.  New information will be added frequently so please visit us on a regular basis to check for updates.
