“Quick Health and Safety Assessments” are carried out by an EEF Health and Safety advisor who will very quickly be able to tell you whether there are areas of your health and safety practices that may not comply with the current laws.  But it is not a report that just focuses on the problems, it will also highlight the areas where you’re best in class.  It’s insight that will enable you to put your energy and resource into the areas that are most important to your business and find cost-effective and practical ways of achieving your health and safety goals.

And it’s all done in 24 hours.

The report that the advisor produces will focus on your current compliance with the latest legislation it covers Policies, Practices and Procedures and it provides a prioritised action list for those areas that may require improvement.
