How do we support customers through our ‘Hassle Free’ retained consultancy service?
We believe that health and safety can be and should be, ‘Hassle Free’ so you can focus on what you and your organisation does best.
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations require employers to appoint one or more competent persons to assist with health and safety measures.

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 help and advice or comment on what you may need.
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.
How much does ‘Hassle Free’ cost?
Hassle Free costs from just £105 per month (excluding vat) and includes everything listed under ‘what’s included’. We ask our clients to commit for a period of one year, after which we ask that a month’s written notice be provided if you wish to cancel the service.
What’s included in a full day of consultancy?
Over the years we’ve learnt that our customers’ needs vary considerably. We therefore invite you to choose a full day of consultancy that meets your needs. Choose from a fire risk assessment, a day’s on-site audit, creation of a food management system or assistance with an SSIP/similar accreditation scheme. Alternatively, you can choose one place on our IOSH Managing Safely Course.
Who owns the documentation produced?
You do, it’s yours and you’ve paid for it. We don’t copyright our forms nor lock everything down in PDF’s. We’ll happily provide original documents in word/excel on request. Where we use PDF’s (for example fire risk assessments and policies) we’ll happily update content as required.
Are there any hidden costs?
If any additional work is required or advised in addition to ‘Hassle Free’ we will always discuss this with you first and provide a separate quotation.
