Is Health & Safety management driving you up the wall?

As an employer, protecting staff, customers, and anyone else attending your premises must be your number one priority. Especially if you own a business within the automotive industry - as the risk of serious injuries occurring is high. Several pieces of Health & Safety legislation outline your legal obligations, including:

The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR).

The Lifting Equipment and Lifting Operations Regulations 1998 (LOLER).

Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH).

General COSHH Essentials for Motor Vehicle Repair;

Guidance from The Health and Safety Executive (HSE

But, without a competent person to identify hazards, implement safety practices, or even draft up your legal paperwork - how can ensure your compliance with the above? Moreover, when can you find the time to manage Health & Safety when running an automotive workshop?

That's where Peninsula can help. When you outsource your Health & Safety management to us, our services ensure you do everything you reasonably can to keep employees safe. We provide:

Support with risk assessments.

Help drafting legal documentation.

So whilst you focus on providing the best service to your customers, we'll ensure your Health & Safety management is on the right track.

Peninsula's risk assessment service helps ensure your legal compliance

Employers in the motor industry will likely encounter several hazards at work. From hazardous substances to old machinery, there are many work activities and objects that could pose a risk of harm to workers, such as:

Hazardous chemicals, such as isocyanate containing paints.

Power tools that create adverse health effects, such as Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS).

Environmental hazards, such as heavy metals,

Moving vehicles, such as vans and cars.

In order to identify these workplace hazards and control them, employers are legally required to perform risk assessments. Because, if an accident does happen in your workplace, you're legally responsible. And if it's clear you've failed to control the risk of harm - you could face legal and financial damages.

But, without the knowledge, experience, or training, it can be difficult to recognise common risks. So, how can you be sure you've done everything you can to protect your workers?

Well, when you outsource your Health & Safety management to Peninsula, we help you do your workplace risk assessment in person, on-site, at a time that suits you.

After your visit, you’ll receive a personalised action plan - which advises what control measures you need to protect people from any Health & Safety risks present. And that's not all - we'll even perform your fire safety assessments too.

Stuck in a jam with legal paperwork? Peninsula's documentation service can help

As part of your legal safety requirements, you must provide certain documentation, such as:

Details of staff Health & Safety training.

But - without the expertise or qualifications, it's difficult to know whether you're meeting your legal obligations. And if you fail to comply, it could land your business in legal and financial trouble with enforcing authorities.

That's why so many businesses in the automotive industry outsource their Health & Safety management to Peninsula. When you work with us, our Health & Safety consultants will draft all your safety documentation. That includes your policies, procedures, letters and more.

So, no more worrying about providing legally watertight paperwork. When you work with Peninsula, you can rest assured knowing it's all taken care of.
