Health & Safety Advisory Service
We have a variety of options to suit all industries and budgets, from a health and safety telephone advice line to a full health and safety manager package, or just a one-off specialist job.
All organisations are required by law to have access to or to appoint a competent person(s). An appointed competent person may either be an internal (trained) employee, an external advisor, or a combination of both.
Depending on the nature and size of your business, will depend on which route you take in appointing a competent person - we have many clients who are sole-traders, and also large clients who have internal safety advisors, but also employ us to back them up when needed.
