Health & Safety Management
Health & Safety Policy
If you have 5 or more employees the law requires you to have a written Health and Safety Policy. Do you have one and is it suitable for your activities? We can develop a ‘bespoke’ health and safety policy for your organisation which includes a Statement of intent, organisational health and safety roles and responsibilities and your arrangements for managing health and safety.
Health & Safety Policy & Procedures
Where it is evident that policies are required or insufficient we can produce or amend these, ensuring they are ‘fit for purpose.'
It is a legal requirement for employers to carryout risk assessments for any activities that has the potential to cause harm as well as specific regulations. For example, COVID-19 risk assessment, a Fire Risk assessment, Display Screen Equipment (DSE) assessment, Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) assessments etc.
We will use our knowledge, skills and experience to assist you either develop your risk assessments or ensure your risk assessment are deemed, 'suitable and sufficient’. We will in simple terms, explain how risk assessments are carried out, provide you with risk assessments which are in an industry recognised format and provide training so that your employees are competent to carry out their own risk assessments.
Accident Reporting & Investigation
Unfortunately, even though all the necessary control measures are in place, accidents still happen. Depending on the severity of the accident this can be a very daunting and stressful time, not only for the injured person and their family but also for management, employees and other stakeholders.
The accident may need reporting to the enforcing authorities and you will be required to carry out an investigation. At times like this it is crucial to receive the right advice in a timely manner. We will guide you through the process and provide support and assistance to ensure you do as much as possible to comply with the law and ultimately prevent a reoccurrence.
If you work in the construction industry you can save yourself a lot of time and money when tendering by being recognised by a Contractors Accreditation Scheme (SSIP) i.e. CHAS, Safe Contractor etc. These schemes have been created to reduce bureaucracy and duplication when trying to demonstrate competency as required by the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015.
As SSIP assessors we have the ability to assist with your application process so that you gain accreditation as quickly as possible.

This will give you reassurance knowing you are receiving the best possible support and advice.
