Outsourced health and safety services

Our outsourced health and safety management services help you manage safety risks, decision-making processes and performance, on an interim or permanent basis. We’ll examine your particular business risks and needs to produce a bespoke programme design, so you can focus on your strategic goals. We’ll work with you to provide a detailed technical analysis of safety-related problems, or assist when your technical services have reached the limits of their capabilities.

What we can do

We work with businesses of all sizes, from small companies who need a permanent health and safety team brought in, to larger companies who require a short-term overview of their health and safety system. Whatever your business situation, we’ll provide a pragmatic solution grounded in real-world knowledge and based on decades of experience providing advice and support.

Our services are either available as a fixed price project or at a flexible day rate. This work can include

  • an analysis of your risk profile and system status
  • service level agreement and performance indicators from the outset
  • access to our extensive knowledge of the sector
  • the provision of an experienced team of qualified practitioners from the manufacturing industry
  • specialist risk assessment — dangerous substances, fire safety, ergonomics, explosive atmospheres and Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) risk assessment
  • dangerous substance safety and control evaluation as per the European directive, ATEX
  • occupational hygiene services including COSHH monitoring, noise and vibration assessments
  • personal protective equipment assessment and selection services
  • behavioural safety tools and techniques
  • machinery safety surveys and improvement
