Health & Safety

Competent Person

Under the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations, all employers will ensure that they have access to Competent Advice. The level of Competency which is required will depend upon the nature of the business and the differing levels of risk.

Competent Advice can be provided by someone in-house (who has had relevant training) or you can appoint a third party to provide this service.  For example, in a low risk environment (e.g. a serviced office), you may appoint someone in-house who has been on a Health & Safety awareness course. For an organisation who has a warehouse or factory operation a much higher level of training would be needed for your in-house competent person (see our section on training for further details).

We can offer a Competent Advice Service. Our field team of highly qualified Consultants are on hand to help our clients through the various requirements of legislation and to help them achieve compliance in their place of work.

It seems that anyone can be a Health & Safety Consultant these days. As long as you are enough of a jobsworth and own a clipboard many feel that you would fit the bill. We passionately disagree with this ideology and all of our Consultants are highly qualified professional individuals who have a wide range of sector experiences.

Our Consultants are Chartered Safety Practitioners and undertake a mandatory CPD programme with the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health. Added to this is the reassurance of membership to the Occupational Safety & Health Consultants Register which has been created by the Government.

Our services range from:

  • On site Auditing functions
  • On site Competent Advice / Coaching roles
  • Accident Investigation and analysis
  • Risk Assessment development days
  • Fire Risk Assessments
  • Email remote support
  • Telephone remote support
  • Specific website development

Our guarantee is to deliver all of the services (and many more besides) with a definitive ‘no anoraks allowed' approach. We are not here to bamboozle you with complicated jargon. Our mission is to make your life as easy as possible and help you to protect yourself, your Company and your employees.
