Experts in Health & Safety

The manufacturing sector directly employs approximately 8.5% of the UK workforce but accounts for 16% of all reported injuries to employees. We help manufacturers take proactive steps to mitigate the risks associated with:

  • Operating machinery;
  • Working at height;
  • Storing and handling hazardous chemicals;
  • Electrical equipment;
  • Fire and explosion risk;
  • Manual handling;
  • Slips, trips and falls;
  • Vehicle movement;
  • Dust exposure;
  • Stress; and
  • Occupational health.

With health and safety being a high priority for manufacturers, we will work closely with you to implement an effective safety management system. In the event of the HSE visiting your premises, this will allow you to demonstrate that you have taken proactive steps to mitigate your risk.
