Health & Safety Specialist | Peace of Mind

You cannot ignore Health & Safety, but sometimes you cannot find the time to put 100 % into ensuring you are compliant.

And even if you do, how do you know you are fully qualified to keep up to date with all Health & safety legislative changes. That’s why you need a health and safety specialist.

Whether it’s something as simple as a Health & Safety policy, risk assessments, inspections or a Health & safety handbook, keeping your organisation compliant is simply not a tick box exercise.

What makes Ellis Whittam specialists?

Ellis Whittam Health & Safety consultants are the experts you need.

As a minimum expectation, our specialists have to have either

  • Completed their NEBOSH qualification; or
  • Be a Chartered Member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (CMIOSH).

If they are not CMIOSH qualified they will need to be GRAD IOSH with an Initial Professional Development (IPD) to become CMIOSH qualified.

This grading comes from Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) – the industry leader for health and safety professionals.

Our health and safety specialists will also need to show that they have real-life experience of managing health and safety. 

If they don’t meet our high expectations, they won’t meet yours.

This shows what level of expertise our specialists have.
