What is Retained Health and Safety Advisor Service?

Our Retained Health and Safety Advisor Service provides you with unlimited access to our expertise. This is provided through a partnership approach, providing you with peace of mind that you are meeting your legal obligations, allowing you to concentrate on your daily business commitments.

How is the service charged?

We charge on a monthly basis.

Is there any initial outlay?

In most circumstances - no. All development work including initial audits is included in the fixed monthly fee. This assists your cashflow, helping avoid large lump sum payments.

Is there a minimum contract term?

We ask that you initially commit to a 12-month contract, after which the service continues on a rolling monthly basis.

How does this service work?

We visit you to initially conduct a Safety Audit which identifies levels of current compliance and improvement actions required. This generates an action plan, with timescales agreed to suit you.

We develop your Safety Management System and documentation in partnership with you (specific to your requirements).

We regularly visit and communicate with you (both planned and ad hoc) to conduct further audits, provide support, coaching and guidance. Our support is provided both in-person and remotely to keep you on track.

Our approach is personal and specific to each client.

We call it the ‘seat-belt culture’. Most of us wear a seat belt when driving; we do this sub-consciously, and we feel uncomfortable when not wearing one. Encouraging people to embrace safety in the same manner is our principal aim.
