Health & Safety Support

Our approach to Health & Safety is both hands-on and completely tailored to your business. We take great pride in really getting to really understand our client’s businesses, ensuring any areas of risk are quickly identified and resolved. We help businesses take proactive steps to mitigate the risks associated with:

  • Asbestos;
  • Storing and handling hazardous chemicals;
  • Working with machinery;
  • Electrical equipment;
  • Occupational health;
  • High-risk activities, such as working at height or in confined spaces; and
  • Fire and explosion risks.

To help you manage your day-to-day requirements, we will work closely with you to implement an effective safety management system. In the event of the HSE visiting your premises, this will allow you to demonstrate that you have taken proactive steps to mitigate your risk.
