Health & Safety

Our Health & Safety consultants offer a pragmatic approach to Health & Safety management, giving you reassurance that you are complying with the statutory requirements.

Our dedicated team have a proven track record of supporting and advising clients to raise Health and Safety standards, whilst enabling them to continue their day-to-day operations.

We specialise in delivering Health & Safety support to educational establishments. We also support the Care and Retail sector and offer our services to a wide variety of SME businesses.

We offer two basic levels of assistance for Health & Safety support which are detailed in our Support Service Plans. These run annually and prices vary depending on the size of the school or business. 

In addition to our Support Plans, we offer a separate e-Learning Training Academy service which provides detailed online courses on Health & Safety compliance, Fire Safety awareness, Food Safety compliance, Working at Height awareness and more. 

Having access to all Health & Safety training courses in one place makes it much easier to keep on top of your organisation’s training needs and allows you, and your staff, to complete the training in your own time and at your own pace.

If you require one-off training on a particular Health & Safety topic, our team can deliver standalone training courses on-site or online throughout the year.

Specifically for schools and academies, we can set up your establishment on our intuitive eVisit system, developed by the Outdoor Education Advisers Panel (OEAP). 

The platform is designed to support Visit Leaders, Headteachers and Educational Visit Co-ordinators and encourages the safe planning of outdoor education, offsite visits and adventurous activities, in line with OEAP guidance.

In addition to the eVisit system, we can offer constructive Health & Safety advice via telephone or email on your upcoming educational visits. 

Whichever route you choose, you can be assured that our comprehensive services will enhance your organisations Health and Safety standards.
