The Government accepted the recommendation outlined in the report, ‘Common Sense, Common Safety’ to professionalise health and safety consultants. The report recommended a qualification requirement that all consultants should be accredited to professional bodies and a web-based directory of accredited consultants should be established.
A network of professional bodies and stakeholders have been working together in partnership to develop this register. They have agreed that a minimum standard should be set for consultants to join the register. This will help employers know that those consultants on the register have been assessed and met the minimum standard by the professional bodies that they belong to.
This minimum standard has been set at a degree level qualification, at least two years experience and active engagement in a continuing professional development scheme. All consultants who join the register are bound by their professional bodies code of conduct and are committed to providing sensible and proportionate advice.
Businesses that use the register to find a consultant will be able to find details of those with experience in their type of work who gives general advice on how to manage health and safety risks. These consultants will have had their qualifications and experience assessed by their professional body.
