Are your consultants fully trained and qualified?
At Peninsula we take great care in recruiting our health and safety consultants. They must be able to show competency, knowledge and practical skills acquired from working with businesses and be able to apply those skills across a range of business types. They must also be qualified with at least full membership of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) or the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).
Many hold Chartered memberships or are working towards that status and many are listed on the voluntary Occupational Health and Safety Consultants Register.
To maintain status with their professional body, BusinessSafe consultants must be able to show that they undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Peninsula ensures that they meet this requirement through regular routine training sessions which ensure that consultants are kept up to date with changes to legal requirements, guidance and best practice in the industries with which they deal.
Will they understand and know what is required of my business?
Almost certainly; because of their business backgrounds and our own internal training and development arrangements our consultants will be able to apply their skills to your particular circumstances.
In the rare event that they are uncertain you can be assured that they will take advice from within our consultancy. Our health and safety services consultants come from such a wide variety of backgrounds, including for example from chemical industries, transport, manufacturing, construction, healthcare, office, retail and administration. This pool of knowledge and practical expertise can always be tapped and used to ensure that you get the best available advice.
What will they do for me?
Initially our consultants will visit your premises and evaluate your compliance with current health and safety legislation. They will ensure that you can demonstrate an effective safety management system that achieves and maintains compliance.
Where you don’t come up to scratch they will provide you with a suggested action plan, supported by practical advice and documentation, to bring you back into compliance.
At subsequent visits they will help you monitor the actions that have been taken and your continuing compliance, providing action plans and guidance as necessary.
