Small business owners set out with a dream of delivering a product or a service. Whether they’re an accountant or a brickie, they see an opportunity and ‘go for it’. They are good at this kind of work and are full of enthusiasm.
Safety systems start to appear in bits and pieces. There is a requirement for a risk assessment or a method statement. It could be the using of a chemical or a substance. What kind of PPE safety footwear do my workers need? Or maybe someone has an accident, nothing too serious, but it requires a few days off. So what do you do? A look around the internet will get you to square one, but why not get ahead of the game and have it all prepared?
David Brede (SHEQ Services) Ltd can help set everything up, including all of the above and provide a safety management system for your business developed to the respected HSG65 standard. This can help you in many unexpected ways by getting reductions in insurance quotes, helping you get accreditation to safe systems in procurement like CHAS, and winning work with public sector clients. Should you have an encounter with the HSE or a local authority enforcement officer, you are much better prepared to answer questions and avoid nasty fees for Intervention and the like.
