Compliance - A Complex Arena

for schools and care agencies.

Regulations and legislations place a duty on employers to appoint a competent person to advise and assist them on Health and Safety issues affecting their business. Smaller organisations such as schools and care homes often lack the resources to have a qualified Health and Safety adviser as part of their staff. A good compliance advisory company could provide you with expert health and safety compliance advice and audit services, acting on your behalf as your "competent person". Their services could assist you in ensuring that all Health and Safety issues are being properly managed and are satisfying the regulators within your industry. a compliance advice and audit service should include: » Policy development and implementation » Risk assessment » Fire risk assessment » Accident investigation and reporting » Telephone assistance » Health and Safety training » Legislative update » Site visits and inspections *The full package is tailored to your individual requirements. These advisors (competent persons) should, ideally, be Chartered Members of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (CMIOSH) and perhaps Registered Consultants of the Occupational Safety and Health Consultants Register (OSHCR) administered by the Health and Safety Executive.
