Health and Safety Consultants
Health and safety is important to everyone and must be managed. Every business in the UK which has 5 or more employees is required by law to complete the following steps to manage health and safety in the workplace:
- Create a written policy stating their commitment to health and safety.
- Set out the organisation detailing how they will manage for managing health and safety.
- Perform risk assessments and document the findings.
- Train their workers to a sufficient level where they can perform safely.
- Have access to competent health and safety advice.
- Have health and safety documentation which details all workplace health and safety arrangements.
Not only must these tasks be completed to a high standard to protect your employees, but they must also be compliant with current health and safety legal guidelines. Failure to comply with legislation can result in prison sentences and unlimited fines, not to mention the damage to the reputation of your business.
This is where Courtley Health & Safety can help your organisation. Our health and safety consultancy services are relied upon by hundreds of companies across the United Kingdom. Since 1995 we have used our experience and knowledge of the industry to provide our clients with the very best services applicable to their business.
Why Use Health and Safety Consultants?
Regardless of the industry you are in, if you have 5 or more employees you must be fully compliant with health and safety policy. There is a lot to consider and the consequences of getting it wrong are severe. Attempting to juggle this responsibility alongside day to day work can easily become too much to manage. That’s why many companies turn to external consultants for health and safety management.
Courtley can help ease the pressure of discharging your health and safety duties, giving you more time to take care of what’s important to you and your business by working with you to develop a bespoke plan. We can help secure accreditation for your organisation; conduct investigations when problems occur and efficiently support the everyday management of health and safety.
What Does a Health and Safety Consultant Do?
Employers have a legal responsibility to provide a safe place of work for their employees and others. They also have a duty to protect the environment and the public who come into contact with their business activities. Because of the increasing number of requirements which must be adhered to, it can become difficult to ensure they are met alongside your normal working activities.
This is where a health and safety consultant like Courtley can aid you. We are able to use our experience to tailor our knowledge to the individual needs of your business. Ensuring you are compliant with the latest legislation and providing your employees with a safe place to work.
The tasks Courtley will complete for you, as your health and safety consultant, include; performing risk assessments, writing health and safety policy documents, performing site inspections, identifying training requirements for workers and investigating any incidents involving your employees or organisation. All of this is supported by regular feedback and reports to keep you up to date.
Depending on your industry, there may be additional issues which need to be addressed to ensure your workplace is compliant. This can involve dealing with the disposal of harmful waste materials, carrying out assessments for working in high-risk environments and ensuring safe systems of work were heavy machinery is used.
These additional issues will be identified by an experienced consultant during a face-to-face meeting, where the needs of your organisation will be established.
