We believe a beneficial Health & Safety Consulting service should begin by helping you identify and risk assess hazards in the workplace, then introduce suitable control measures to prevent accidents happening.
Preventing accidents prevents HSE intervention and investigations, subsequent Legal Liability claims, lost working time and personal prosecution of Directors.
It saves financial costs to your business including increased insurance premiums associated with frequent insurance claims.
Once your risks are effectively controlled we will help you move on to completing the necessary paperwork required to prove discharge of your duty of care and compliance with the Health & Safety at Work Act (1974), The Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations (1999) and other regulations relevant to your industry.
Throughout our relationship with you we will ensure our advice is straightforward and cost effective to use, provides real benefits and compliments your business processes.
All our services are provided by consultants who hold professional Health & Safety qualifications and we can supply Competent Persons on a retained contract where required.
