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.
“Taking away your Health and Safety Headache“
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.
Ecological Planning & Research Limited has been using the services of Award H&S Limited since 2007. We are particularly impressed with their bespoke approach to our requirements, something which larger impersonal H&S Consultancies never seem to achieve. They are particularly good at listening to us and are genuinely interested in our business and ensuring that we meet, and comply with, our H&S requirements. Chris and his team are always contactable by phone or email should we need guidance, and make themselves available to meet up on site if we have issues that require their expertise.
They always keep us up to speed with new legislation and ensure that we follow this through with our own internal policies, procedures, training and risk assessments. Our staff really enjoy Chris’ training workshops as he manages to deliver what is a serious subject in an interesting, interactive and enlightening manner. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Award H&S Limited to other companies and would be more than happy to discuss this with anybody who is considering using their services.
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.
Are ‘YOU’ safe from this legislation? How sure are ‘YOU’ that your company complies with the Corporate Manslaughter legislation? Do you know what your ‘FIRST LINE OF DEFENCE’ should be? If not, you NEED to call Award Health & Safety to find out about our one day health & safety awareness briefing, inc the Corporate Manslaughter Act, for Board Members, Directors & Senior Management. Do it today to avoid any issues tomorrow. Corporate Manslaughter is not going to go away.
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.
Addressing these issues early helps with staff moral and ensures that all employees have a safe, comfortable working environment in which to operate. This results in less sickness, less absenteeism and greater productivity.
