Fire Risk Assessment

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.

Workplace Risk Assessment

Identifying potential hazards and managing risks to health and safety is essential in ensuring a safe working environment. Risk assessment is fundamental to all health & safety requirements and standards. We can assist you in carrying out risk assessments which are proportionate to your working environment.

DSE Computer Workstation Assessment

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.

Accident Investigation

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.

Competent Person

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.

HSE News

A Wiltshire based estate agents has been fined after a member of the public they were showing round a property fell 30ft down a well.

Swindon Magistrates Court heard how, during an open house viewing the prospective buyer stepped onto a wooden board which was covering a well. The board gave way and she fell 30ft down the well, where she became submerged by water. A hosepipe was thrown to the woman and she managed to secure it around her waist it was another hour before she was recused from the well. The incident left the victim with head injuries, including concussion but also suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found the estate agents had been warned about the well and the board that was covering it did not look safe. The company did not properly investigate if there was a risk of people falling down the well when they were viewing the property.

Strakers (Holdings) Limited of Market Place, Devizes, Wiltshire pleaded guilty to breaching section 3 (1) of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and have been fined £200,000 and ordered to pay costs of £2,474.

Speaking after the hearing HSE inspector Matthew Tyler said: “This incident could have easily become a fatal tragedy. If, when warned, of the unsafe well the company had properly checked to see if it was secure the trauma this individual has gone through could have been prevented.

“Employers must check the risks associated with their work to protect their workers and members of the public they have contact with. Once they have identified any risks they can take practical steps to control them.”
