Health & Safety in Kent
In accordance with Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 Section 2, every company which has five or more employees must have a policy on health and safety. The policies include rules and guidelines for your staff and visitors to follow to keep themselves and others safe in the working environment. All employees must read and be able to have access to this policy at any time.
Unlike big companies that often have a dedicated department on this issue, small companies often overlook health and safety issues due to cost constraints. However, when standing before the law, the responsibility is the same no matter the size of your company.
If you are a business owner and your company does not have a policy on health and safety, we at Risk Safety Services can help. We will help you establish a comprehensive policy complying to general and specific risk assessments (Manual Handling, Fire, COSHH, DSE, Machinery etc.) in Kent. We can also help develop training sessions as well as auditing specialising to cater for customers situated in the Kent area.
Risk Safety Services, as our name implies, is a UK based company about health, safety and fire consultancy. We assist our clients in complying with health and safety laws as well as providing many other services in Health and Safety, Fire Safety Management, Event Safety and Training industry.
We will also evaluate and find out the risks that may occur should an incident happens. According to Regulation 3 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, a document on the hidden risks in the working environment is also required.
Small companies often do this themselves without professional advice. This can lead to missing or underestimated potential damage, ultimately can have a negative impact on anyone other than the business owner. We understand that saving costs is a priority for small businesses, but having a professional to consult on Health and Safety is always the ethical thing to do.
We can confidently do so thanks to the support of our team of experienced consultants in schools, Higher Education, Retail & Distribution, Construction, Manufacturing Warehousing, Care Industry, Civil Engineering, Offices, Public Sector and the Leisure Industry and a whole range of other sectors.
They are Chartered Member of Institution of Occupational Safety and Health, The International Institute of Risk and Safety Management and Members of the Institution of Fire Engineers.
At Risk Safety Services, we are interested in helping you and your employees take precautions against the worst accidents rather than legal issues. Now you know where to come when you need health, safety and fire consultancy.
Health and Safety is not simply a duty to meet regulation, it is an essential to maintain the safety level at your workspace. You and your staff needs to be prepared for the worst case scenario ensuring that everybody (including guests) knows where to go in case of an emergency to minimalise damages and injuries. This is an ethical responsibility and you do not want to be responsible should the worst happens.
