Health & Safety
Get peace of mind with hands-on Health & Safety support
When it comes to safe working practices, the consequences of falling short can be devastating. Not only is your reputation at stake, but with civil claims and criminal breaches to worry about, a serious safety incident is every employer’s worst nightmare.
However, at WorkNest H&S, we understand that when you’re trying to run a business, health and safety can become a time-consuming burden, synonymous with red tape and complicated systems – particularly if you don’t employ an in-house team or health and safety is ‘tagged on’ to someone’s role.

Group HR Director, Culina Group
We moved our legal support to WorkNest (formerly Law at Work) having previously used a time and line law firm. It was important, though, that an all-inclusive fee structure did not come at the expense of quality. Thankfully we’ve been delighted with the service we’ve received from WorkNest.”
What we recognised in WorkNest is the background that they have. They are able to supply knowledge and experience in a number of disciplines, which enables us to develop our business in a way that’s safe, to do it on time and with a quality to it.”
