We recognise the business and workplace benefits of adopting a holistic approach to Health and Safety Management and Business Risk Management. Our policies and procedures are developed with this in mind and to ensure your organisation is fully compliant with all relevant and current legislation.
The greatest catastrophic risk in most work places is from fire. A Fire Risk Assessment helps to identify and eliminate the risk of fire and to ensure that if a fire does occur your employees and visitors can be evacuated safely. The Fire Risk Assessment will also ensure your organisation is complying with all relevant legislation.
Identifying potential hazards and managing risks to health and safety is essential in ensuring a safe working environment. Risk assessment is fundamental and we can assist you in carrying out risk assessments which are proportionate to your working environment.
A DSE Assessment evaluates the hazards for employees who regularly use computer equipment, including laptops and mobile devices. Our solutions include online or form based self assessments, face to face assessments with a consultant or training of your own staff to carry out the assessments.
The investigation of work-related accidents forms an essential part of managing health and safety. We use a systematic approach to determining why an accident occurred and the steps needed to prevent recurrence. In the event of a serious incident we can liaise with enforcement authorities and assist with RIDDOR reports.
As an employer you need to appoint somebody to act as your competent health and safety person. This could be a suitably qualified employee or you could hire a consultant such as ourselves to perform this role. The decision on who to appoint will depend on the specific working environment and the risks involved.

It has been reported that Keith Morton QC, instructed by Mike Appleby of Fisher Scoggins Waters, will be acting for a facilities outsourcing company who are seeking to quash the HSE system for deciding Fee for Intervention appeals and to challenge the rejection of its appeals against specific Notices of Contravention.
The judicial review hearing is yet to be fixed but is expected to take place in the early part of 2017. The permission was granted by Mr Justice Kerr who, when granting permission, observed that:
“It is arguable that the HSE is, unlawfully, judge in its own cause when operating the FFI scheme; and that the scheme is either unlawful or being operated in an unlawful manner.”
Judicial review is a type of court proceeding in which a judge reviews the lawfulness of a decision or action made by a public body. The reviews are a challenge to the way in which a decision has been made, rather than the rights and wrongs of the conclusion reached.
One commentator on the HSE Construction Web Online Community recently expressed concern about the FFI process in stating:
“Fees for intervention are a blight on a lawful democratic society. They should be banned forever, and paid back by the government. No one should be guilty until tried by a fair judicial process. Innocent until proved guilty is what our legal system is about. Yet the size of FFI effectively makes them a fine.”
JR is not concerned with the conclusions of the process and whether those were ‘right’, as long as the right procedures have been followed. The court will not substitute what it thinks is the ‘correct’ decision.
The HSE Fee for Intervention scheme has also come under fire because of the effect on the relationships between the regulator and the regulated. One legal practice surveyed clients and found:
