- Sensible, proportionate advice, on everything from risk control measures to regulatory requirements, to help you get clear on your responsibilities and minimise the potential for health and safety incidents.
- Annual General Risk Assessments to identify workplace hazards that could cause harm to employees and visitors and help you put measures in place to manage them, reducing the risk of accidents.
- A robust health and safety policy and handbook, tailored to your organisation, to outline your approach to managing risk, promote best practice across your organisation and strengthen your claims defensibility.
- Acting as one of your competent persons, which all organisations must have access to in order to help them meet the requirements of health and safety law.
- Emergency assistance in the event of enforcement visits and accident investigations, to help protect your organisation during difficult times.
- Engaging e-Learning courses, designed to improve health and safety awareness and embed long-term cultures of compliance.
