Following the introduction of the Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 employers are now more aware than ever of the importance of having formalised policies and procedures in place, governing safety in the workplace. Our consultants carry out detailed safety audits and risk assessments, provide the client with a report of the findings of their inspection, supported with photographic evidence and subsequently produce a Safety Statement and supporting Safety Management Systems for the client. Safety handbooks are also provided for all members of staff and, depending on the level of service required our consultants can introduce and implement the new policies and procedures.
