Why Choose Award Health and Safety Consultants?
Our no nonsense, straight forward approach means employers love working with us.
We are not here to preach to you, just help take away some of the burden.
Why do I need a Health & Safety Consultant?
Every business has a responsibility to meet their health and safety obligations. Failure to do so can result in prosecution.
But how do you know what is required?
If you don’t have an in-house expert on hand 24/7 to advise you, then using an external company to advise on health and safety makes a lot of sense. A health & safety consultant will work with you to ensure you meet your obligations.
What is a Competent Person?
In this context a competent person is someone who can advise and assist with your health and safety measures. It is laid out in law that every employer must appoint a health and safety competent person.
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 state:
“Every employer shall appoint one or more competent persons to assist him in undertaking the measures he needs to take to comply with the requirements and prohibitions imposed upon him by or under the relevant statutory provisions.”
This is where Award Health and Safety can help, we can become your competent person.
We always receive an excellent service from Award. They are always on call for any health and safety questions or issues we have during the working week. I find the monthly newsletter very useful to keep me up to date on any industry legislation changes.
Award run a wide range of essential health and safety courses which along with the site visits they carries out keeps us in good order to retain our CHAS and Construction Line membership.

Health and Safety Legislation
Many employers struggle to keep abreast of the ever changing health and safety legislation. It can become a full time job for someone.
By employing a health and safety consultant, you are giving your organisation access to the latest health and safety advice and making sure you aren’t exposed to any undue risks.
Happy Healthy Staff
Having a professional health and safety consultant to hand enables employers to spend time finding health and safety issues that otherwise would have gone unnoticed.
