Client Questionnaire Support
Whether you are a retained client, or are looking for one off help/advice, Acorn Health & Safety regularly supports a wide variety of Construction, Building Management and Trades organisations to achieve approved supplier status.
“I’ve been on a first aid course at the uni of Bristol for the last 3 days with a trainer called Matt. I just wanted to email to say that he gave us some of the best first aid training I’ve ever experienced (and honestly, some of the best teaching I’ve ever received full stop) – everyone I spoke to during the course agreed with me that he was engaging, patient, personable and knowledgeable. The time passed so quickly because it was clear how much he cared and how much he wanted to give us his knowledge, not just because it was his job but because he, personally, wanted us to be well equipped to give people first aid in real life. Thank you for sending him! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to my colleagues, friends and family, both as a trainer and a first aider.”

Why do our customers choose us?
Unfortunately, we are often only approached when access to a site has been denied or contractors have been placed on stop pending completion of a supplier application.
If you have already received requests from your clients, for documents and information in support of an approved supplier application, in our experience they tend not to go away and you will be asked to complete them, before you can commence work, or apply for tenders.
Acorn Health & Safety is a leading provider of health and safety training and consultancy in the South West. Our trainers and consultants come from a wide variety of professional backgrounds and have considerable, hands on practical experience which is reflected in our grounded, pragmatic approach.
Customers come from an equally diverse range of organisations and businesses but choose Acorn because we’ll keep you on the right side of the law, whilst recognising that health and safety needs to compliment your day to day business activities.
How do we support customers with client questionnaires?
We will review supplier questionnaires and provide general comment/advice on completing responses to health and safety related questions. This can often be done electronically, or if you prefer, a face to face meeting can be arranged. Where clients struggle to complete responses owing to a lack of evidence being available, we can provide a wide variety of forms, templates and written procedures to support applications.
In some cases, we might recommend ‘Hassle Free’ our retained health and safety consultancy service or suggest clients consider applying for SSIP Accreditation such as CHAS, EXOR, SMAS or Safe Contractor. Applying for and being awarded an SSIP Accreditation can sometimes negate the need to complete supplier questionnaires or at least help considerably with their completion.
What should you expect from Acorn Health & Safety?
The information we provide will be based on our experience of supporting a wide variety of businesses and organisations. We will either complete relevant sections of a questionnaire on your behalf or, alternatively provide responses to questions for you to use.
We will assign you a dedicated and competent health and safety professional who will gain an understanding of your needs and be on hand to provide any help, advice or comment you need.
Any documentation produced will either be uploaded to our cloud based storage system, provided electronically, or as a hard copy in the required format. Following any piece of consultancy work we are available by phone or on e-mail, so you can contact us easily, if you need our assistance or further advice.
Whatever your health and safety needs are, our ‘Hassle Free’ retained consultancy service is here to help.
For one-off assessments or, a tailored approach, we offer a wide range of consultancy services speak to our consultants to discuss your needs.
