When serious accidents happen at work, it is not just the injured employees who suffer – an accident at work can have wide-ranging and unforeseeable repercussions on not only the employee and employer, but also the injured person’s family and colleagues, sometimes for the rest of their lives. For an employer, an accident in the workplace can result in severe sanctions, including prohibition and improvement orders, prosecutions, or in the worse case, a prison sentence for officers of the company. Serious accidents can also damage the goodwill of a business - bad publicity can result in lost customers and, in some cases, large fines and legal costs can result in the closure of a business with the resulting loss of jobs.

Accidents cannot be totally prevented, but the likelihood and severity can be dramatically reduced with a robust health and safety management system that ensures risks are indentified and controlled. We work closely with small businesses that do not have in-house health and safety resources, to ensure that they meet their statutory obligations under relevant health and safety legislation and so ensure the health, safety and welfare of their employees. Our website outlines the range of services that we offer, all of which can be tailored to a client’s specific requirements, from one-off training courses to the provision of comprehensive “competent person” services.

To identify the strengths and weaknesses of your health and safety management system, we offer a free no obligation audit followed up with a detailed audit report. For further details on how we can help you and your business, contact Tony Adcock on 01223-872772 or by email on the Contact page.
