Advice line

You will be provided with a certificate to confirm our appointment for tendering purposes.

Silver: Bronze plus an annual audit to assess your current level of health and safety compliance, the audit also includes a health and safety improvement plan.

Gold: Bronze plus two days working with you to assist with any health and safety issues of your choice. This could be assisting with risk assessments, accreditation schemes or site inspections, it’s really up to you.

The advice line will be available between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday, to give advice by both telephone and email.

Health and Safety

What it does...

The Health and Safety Executive, HSE, does not tell you precisely what you can and cannot do at your workplace or in your business, what it does is give guidelines and then pass the buck over to you. The key word in their approach is “appropriate” and what this means is that you, as an employer, are tasked to take, or appoint someone to take, appropriate decisions.

That person, be it you or someone else has to be “competent” in making those appropriate decisions. If you appoint us as your “competent” person we can advise you and keep you on track.
