It is a legal requirement under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 that all businesses and the self-employed must have access to competent health and safety advice.  We have built three exclusive packages to suit your business size and HSMS requirements.

Necessities

From £35 per month

Our Necessities package not only satisfies that requirement but also provides you with peace of mind that we have your back for all your health & safety matters.

This package includes support via telephone and email from a qualified H&S practitioner, and is perfect for running queries past us, having us double check your paperwork before a tender and providing legal updates which may affect your business or industry.  This package is ideal for sole traders, smaller businesses who don’t have the resources in-house or those who simply like the reassurance of a competent second opinion.

Key Essentials

From £75 per month

Our Key Essentials package provides everything covered in our necessities package as well as 2 additional days per year to audit your full HSMS system. This audit will be carried out on your premises and includes a full report on our findings plus an easy-to-understand action plan.  This package is ideal for those who pretty much have health & safety handled internally but feel they would benefit from a fresh pair of eyes to keep them on track and making progress with their goals laid out in the health and safety

Principal Package

Contact for price

Our Principal package is the full kit and caboodle designed to be flexible to support businesses both with internally appointed personnel and those businesses who need or want an appointed health & safety advisor, but simply don’t need one full time or don’t have the resources to pay a full time salary.  We recommend an initial meet up (face to face or video conferencing) to discuss your requirements in further detail so that we can quote appropriately for your support package.
