Risk assessment is the cornerstone of effective safety management and all risk control measures flow from that process. Running through our consultancy service is a practical, “hands on” approach from our experienced professional consultants to keep the process as simple and effective as possible.
Risk assessments are produced in the workplace in full consultation with the most important people of all – the employees involved in the work being assessed. Following Health & Safety Executive guidelines, assessments cover all work activities, equipment use and work areas. These will also cover specialist areas such as Workstation Assessments, Provision of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH). Resultant control measures will be practical and cost effective. We will advise on how to involve employees and on any aspect of implementing risk controls. Most important of all, our assessments will comply with all regulations and satisfy the insurance surveyor!
To accompany risk assessments there is often a demand for Method Statements. We produce customised, practical method statements to meet the demands of customers, compliant with industry standards and Health and Safety Executive guidelines.
Fire Risk Assessments are totally customised to premises and work activities resulting in practical fire safety precautions which will fit each employers set up and show compliance with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
We also offer surveys in the area of Noise in accordance with the guidelines published to accompany the respective HSE regulations.
To underpin the risk assessment process we carryout “walk round” safety inspections. These test the day to day conditions and assess the effectiveness of agreed risk controlled measures. We also offer a wider, systematic compliance audit of all the employer’s arrangements, systems and procedures.
