Health and Safety Policy

It is a legal requirement for employers with more than five employees to have a written health and safety policy. This in turn facilitates formal arrangements to effectively manage workplace risks. The Health and Safety Policy and Procedures Manual is a fundamental and integral part of the Health and Safety management process.

Health and Safety Management

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.

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.

HSE Outsourcing

Outsourcing is an effective way of improving health and safety management across your organisation. It can reduce costs and work place risk and give organisations time to focus on their core business. Many companies enjoy the benefits of working with their consultants in this way.

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.

Legionella Risk Assessments

We carry out straightforward Legionella Risk Assessments in line with the HSE ACOP L8.

Occupational Stress Audit

Stress related illnesses cause more lost time at work than any other factor. We can carry out a management level Stress Audit to assess stress levels and to ensure compliance with the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations and the Health and Safety Executive Stress Management Standards.

HSE Aspects of Client Tenders

We have assisted numerous companies improve their chances of winning business in a formal tender process. This has been achieved by helping those clients improve both their own health and safety management systems and the way in which they present those systems to their clients and prospects.

HSE News

A steel producer has today been fined after the death of 26-year-old maintenance electrician, Thomas Standerline.

Hull Crown Court heard how, on 23 April 2010, Mr Standerline, an employee of Tata Steel, was examining a crane as part of his inspection duties as a maintenance electrician. Whilst carrying out this work, an overhead crane travelled over the cage he was in, trapping and then crushing him. Mr Standerline died instantly.

An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found Tata Steel had failed to enforce its own safety procedures, despite having two previous incidents before Mr Standerline’s death. The HSE investigation also found Tata Steel failed to put in place essential control measures which would have prevented the overhead crane that killed Mr Standerline from even being in operation.

Tata Steel UK Limited of Millbank, London, pleaded guilty to breaching Section 2 and Section 3 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and fined £1.4 million with costs of £140,000.

Speaking after the hearing, a member of Mr Standerline’s family said: “Thomas’s death has devastated us as a family. There’s not a day goes by when we don’t think about him. We miss him always, especially on family occasions when he should be with us. He was well loved by everyone who knew him, and had lots of friends. Every day we think about what might have been if he had still been here. We would like to thank, once again, all those who have helped and supported us over the course of the last eight years. It means a great deal to us.”

HSE principal inspector Kirsty Storer said: “This tragic loss of life could have been avoided had the company adhered to and enforced its own safety procedures. Despite two previous incidents sharing features with the one which ultimately cost Mr Standerline his life, the company failed both to take these as a warning sign and to act on safety recommendations.”
