Health & Safety Advisors
In addition to providing CDM Coordinator services which ensure compliance with the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007, we regularly carry out and provide:
Health + safety audits
We will visit a new client and establish the scope of work that is carried out to determine what regulations apply to the work and what the corresponding level of client compliance is. This information will assist us in preparing a programme of work which needs to be undertaken to achieve proper compliance.

Health and Safety Management Systems
Everyone has to deal with health and safety at some time in their working lives.
For many it is all a matter of common sense; for others it’s something to be endured – we all have our views on the importance of health and safety at work.
UK law requires everyone in the workplace to recognize their responsibility and comply with all the current health and safety legislation that applies to their workplace.
Employers have duties to fulfill – each must (amongst other things):
- have a current health and safety policy and safe working procedures
- assess and control significant risks
- communicate with employees and provide training when necessary
Employees, contractors working for you and the self-employed have health and safety obligations too.
Employers with 5 or more employees must have all their health and safety policies and procedures as written documents – revised and kept up to date.
We suggest that documents and procedures are reviewed on an annual basis and updated only when necessary due to changes in regulations or company procedures.
We are experienced in providing compliant Health and Safety Management Systems – including user friendly Method Statements and Risk Assessments.
