OUR SERVICES & PRODUCTS​

Why Work With Us

Your ability to keep each individual person in your organisation safe, and have the records to prove it, is a serious matter – which we help you navigate with confidence. To accomplish this, we offer a wide variety of documents, templates, and information to help manage health and safety and will train anyone that requires it.

We can also assist in how to best use our documents and templates, to ensure you get the very best results, manage health and safety in your organisation, protect your employees, and avoid unnecessary prosecutions.

We’ve already done the hard work, so you don’t have to; you will receive all relevant health and safety documentation to learn, train, and prove your successful health and safety measures.

Fewer accidents in the workplace: safer systems of work don’t just reduce the chance of workplace accidents, they increase the reliability and efficiency of your production.

Less lost time: with fewer accidents, less time is lost through injury; which will cost your organisation delays in work and eliminate the need to employ temporary staff for cover.

Money-saving: maintaining more hygienic systems of practice will result in less sickness time, reducing the need for temporary employment cover, minimising compensation claims, reducing the chance of prosecutions, and lowering insurance premiums.

Happier workforce: if employees see that their organisation takes their wellbeing seriously, they will develop a greater commitment to that organisation; it is well documented that a happy workforce is a far more efficient workforce.

Greater efficiency: by managing health and safety correctly from the outset, you can identify potential hazards at the earliest opportunity. Easy routines put in place can eliminate hazards and ensure better project management for a safer workplace.

Protected: when issues do occur, or the auditors come to town, you will have all the necessary paperwork to prove attendance of training and confirm maintenance schedules to keep your business safe legally

These are just some of the benefits organisations see when they manage health and safety correctly; because it’s not just about avoiding prosecutions, health and safety starts with ensuring your employees are safe, but when applied in the correct way, it can achieve so much more.

TOOLBOX TALKS

Enjoy streamlined training using a brand new generation of information hand-outs, which explain using simple facts paired with relevant pictures that are discussed as part of a group "talk" to raise awareness of dangers. Individuals then keep a copy with guidance notes to refer to again and again.

RAMS & RISK ASSESSED METHOD STATEMENTS

Designed to be easy to read and understand, these documents have passed strict HSE scrutiny and will ensure your employees work safely while complying with legal requirements.
