Helping vets stay safe and risk-free
Working with animals is rewarding work. But when you’re running a small practice, meeting health & safety and HR requirements can take up far too much time.
Our consultants are trained to help vets remove hazards and manage their people. It means you can focus on providing pets with the care they need – without worrying about your legal risk.
Reducing the risk in your veterinary centre
When you care for animals, every day can bring a new challenge. From dealing with unpredictable animals to performing surgery, there are lots of potential health & safety hazards.
Without proper health & safety guidelines or safe and approved equipment, your employees could seriously injure themselves. And as an employer, it’s up to you to take every step to protect your team from harm.
Our qualified consultants can guide you through risk assessments to help you manage hazards like toxic substances or animal bites.
And we won’t stop there – we can create your health & safety policies and offer 24/7 expert support.
Peninsula helped me to instigate a Health & Safety policy that had become outdated as our practice had rapidly grown in recent years. With their help, maintaining and updating our policy has become much more streamlined, enabling me to focus on other aspects of workflow and helping to take the pressure off an area that can too easily become overwhelming.
