Health and Safety

Health and Safety should be treated as a living thing and kept alive by constant review and update.  We are here to help ensure that your company is compliant, meets legislation and protects your staff.  You cannot insure against a fine as the Health and Safety at work act is a criminal act so please make sure your company meets its Health and Safety obligations.

We do the work for you and then mentor your staff – we do not supply our clients with multiple volumes of generic information that sits on the Managing Director’s shelf and is rarely referenced unless there is a problem.  All our Health and Safety team live in the “real world” and are approachable – they will take away the mystique of the perceived “Dark Arts” of Health and Safety!
