Health & Safety Legal Compliance
Legal Register Development
The purpose of a legal register is to identify and determine the health & safety compliance obligations relevant to your business. We will identify the applicable sections of law and provide a simple summary, so that you know "what the law requires you to do?"
Other benefits of having a legal register include demonstrating how your business keeps up to date with changes in legislation. Recording and retaining documented information as evidence of compliance evaluation. Maintaining knowledge and understanding of the organisations compliance status. Also, the above are mandatory requirements of an occupational health & safety management system standard.
Health & Safety Compliance Audits
Do you know if you are compliant with Health & Safety legislation? This audit is designed to review all your activities, look at the corresponding legislation and ensure you are meeting your legal obligations. Once completed you will receive an audit report with conclusions and recommendations. You will also receive a prioritised action plan detailing in simple terms what needs to be done. Additional support can be provided to ensure the actions are implemented.
Health & Safety Workplace Inspections
Its fine having all the relevant policies and procedures in place. However, there is a requirement to ensure they are being implemented in the workplace. Having an independent third-party inspection not only demonstrates your commitment to health and safety but also gives you confidence and peace of mind knowing that your employees are working safely. If any deficiencies are found these will be highlighted in a formal report with practical recommendations for improvement.
We have undertaken audits and inspections across a variety of industries including construction, logistics and warehousing, care, offices and retail.
Health & Safety Construction Site Inspections
The Construction (Design & Management) regulations require certain duty holders, Principal Contractor, Contractor to plan, manage and monitor construction work under their control so that it is carried out without risks to health and safety. Having HSCS undertaking regular independent health and safety site inspections assists with the monitoring of health and safety performance as the project develops. On completion of the inspection a report will be given to the relevant person i.e. site manager/agent, supervisor.
Management System Third Party Audits OHSAS 18001, ISO 45001 & ISO 9001
