Health and Safety Policy
It is a legal requirement for employers with more than five employees to have a written health and safety policy. This in turn facilitates formal arrangements to effectively manage workplace risks. The Health and Safety Policy and Procedures Manual is a fundamental and integral part of the Health and Safety management process.
Health and Safety Management
We recognise the business and workplace benefits of adopting a holistic approach to Health and Safety Management and Business Risk Management. Our policies and procedures are developed with this in mind and to ensure your organisation is fully compliant with all relevant and current legislation.
Fire Risk Assessment
The greatest catastrophic risk in most work places is from fire. A Fire Risk Assessment helps to identify and eliminate the risk of fire and to ensure that if a fire does occur your employees and visitors can be evacuated safely. The Fire Risk Assessment will also ensure your organisation is complying with all relevant legislation.
Workplace Risk Assessment
Identifying potential hazards and managing risks to health and safety is essential in ensuring a safe working environment. Risk assessment is fundamental to all health & safety requirements and standards. We can assist you in carrying out risk assessments which are proportionate to your working environment.
DSE Computer Workstation Assessment
A DSE Assessment evaluates the hazards for employees who regularly use computer equipment, including laptops and mobile devices. Our solutions include online or form based self assessments, face to face assessments with a health and safety consultant or training of your own staff to carry out the assessments.
The investigation of work-related accidents forms an essential part of managing health and safety. We use a systematic approach to determining why an accident occurred and the steps needed to prevent recurrence. In the event of a serious incident we can liaise with enforcement authorities and assist with RIDDOR reports.
Health and Safety Outsourcing
Health and Safety outsourcing is an effective way of improving health and safety management across your organisation. It can reduce costs and work place risk and give organisations time to focus on their core business. Many companies enjoy the benefits of working with their health and safety consultants in this way.
As an employer you need to appoint somebody to act as your competent health and safety person. This could be a suitably qualified employee or you could hire a health and safety consultant to perform this role. The decision on who to appoint will depend on the specific working environment and the risks involved.
We carry out straightforward Legionella Risk Assessments in line with the HSE ACOP L8.
Stress related illnesses cause more lost time at work than any other factor. We can carry out a management level Stress Audit to assess stress levels and to ensure compliance with the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations and the Health and Safety Executive Stress Management Standards.
This audit considers the environmental aspects of the workplace for both your employees and the wider community. The Health and Safety consultant can either assess an existing environmental management system or undertake an initial environmental audit for organisations that do not have a system in place.
We encourages the formation of a Health and Safety Committee or more informal meetings to spread responsibility across the organisation. The health and safety consultant can assist in the setting up of the committee, meeting or forum and take an active part in running the agenda including acting as chairperson.
We have assisted numerous companies improve their chances of winning business in a formal tender process. This has been achieved by helping those clients improve both their own health and safety management systems and the way in which they present those systems to their clients and prospects.
