Whether you are a new and growing business or an established organisation, you are responsible for identifying hazards and managing risks within the scope of your business practices. This means you are subject to various types of health and safety and other safety related legislation.
Unfortunately, health and safety legislation by its very nature is not very clear to allow organisations/employers the flexibility to manage health and safety, in a manner which best fits their work activities.
Because of this, determining what YOU need to do to comply with the law can be confusing, frustrating and feel like an unnecessary burden.
As qualified and experienced health and safety professionals, we can remove a lot of that burden and make managing health and safety in your business ‘Hassle Free’.
Should you choose our Hassle Free consultancy package, you will be assigned a consultant which best fits the needs of your business, a bespoke health and safety policy and a suite of forms and document templates that suit your business.
In addition to the ‘paper’ support, your consultant is your on-the-phone professional voice and will help to guide and advise you in assessing, implementing and improving your health and safety management systems.
Should you be seeking accreditation with an SSIP scheme, for example, CHAS, SMAS, safecontractor and constructionline, to name but a few, or are going through a tender process with a client, we can greatly assist with this.
For example, Acorn was recently approached by a business that wished to gain accreditation with safecontractor.
They had already attempted the process on their own, but had failed the audit and were unsure what additional information was required.
Upon initial consultation, it was determined that the best way forward was to sign up to Hassle Free, as this would allow the client the time needed to gather and the consultant the flexibility and time to review, all relevant information and documents.
After a face to face consultation, a review of all current documents and assistance with creation of additional documents, further review of additional documentation and a change to the work activities the client had sought to be accredited for, the next submission and audit with safecontractor was passed without any hassle.
When you sign up for Hassle Free, you are what is known as a retained client which means we are your retained consultancy and as such, you are not limited to assistance on implementation of your health and safety management system and SSIP schemes.
We are able to provide any business health and safety related advice and assistance that you might need.
We can review and provide feedback on risk assessments and method statements for on-site works you plan to undertake; develop safe operating procedures and safe systems of work for your work activities which will help to improve your training systems; provide advice on the types and frequency of training you should provide to your employees to ensure you are meeting your legal obligations and the list goes on.
Whatever your health and safety needs, give us a call today 0117 958 2070 or e-mail us firstname.lastname@example.org and make that additional hassle, ‘Hassle Free’.
