Why bother with a Health and Safety Consultant

 

Small businesses often feel that they can undertake Health and Safety themselves as their perception could be how much is going be the cost of a consultant?

However the cost of getting it wrong does affect small businesses in especially when an accident occurs, civil claim or HSE enforcement action, especially now that the HSE can charge £ 167 per hour for advice, and can stop businesses in their tracks by issuing either improvement or prohibition notices as they see fit.

I have observed that some business owners are often to preoccupied to know their organisation could be breaching Health and Safety law until its to late!

We can help, for a cost that would be reasonable, on the following:

  • Formulate a simple Health and Safety policy that your employees can understand
  • Undertake risk assessments and advise on corrective actions to minimise or reduce risks
  • Inform your organisation of any legal changes that could affect your business
  • Communicate with regulatory bodies – HSE, local councils, local fire service
  • Provide bespoke Health and Safety training that is relevant to your business
  • Introduce and implement a compliant Health and Safety Management System
  • Undertake Site inspections and Audits to ensure that your organisation remains compliant

We can provide different levels of Health and Safety services to suit all budgets !

From yearly retainer contracts that would provide peace of mind of having one of our consultants at the other end of the phone/e-mail from £ 300 per annum, to fully compliant Health and Safety Systems.
