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, are you fully qualified to keep up to date with all Health & safety legislative changes. That’s why you need a Health & 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.
Health & Safety legislation and regulations are complex and ever-changing. It’s important that you are keeping your staff, clients and visitors safe. The repercussions of not being compliant mean fines, prison and damage to your reputation. Can you afford that?
Let Ellis Whittam keep you compliant so you can keep your organisation flourishing.
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 IOSH – the industry leader for Health & Safety professionals.
Our Health & Safety specialists will also need to show that they have real-life experience of managing Health & Safety.
If they don’t meet our high expectations, they won’t meet yours.
This shows what level of expertise our specialists have.
Your Health & Safety
Having support means having experts on the ground, keeping you in the loop and compliant.
Ellis Whittam’s Health & Safety consultants have wide-ranging knowledge and understanding of sectors including
They meet you at your site(s) and assess thoroughly what level of risk you are. From this they will:

- Prepare a Health & Safety policy and handbook tailored to your organisation
- Provide a Prioritised Safety Action Plan that lists everything that needs to be done in order to meet your statutory obligations.
