No. It may help to identify two fundamentally different approaches. There are companies whose service comprises the supply of a collection of document templates that are completed by you as the client. There are occasional visits by an auditor to check on progress, but you shoulder most of the work. We would counsel extreme care as such services do not typically offer good value for money and can lead to difficulties. There is a wealth of such documentation circulating on the internet that is entirely free of charge if you are prepared to risk your presumed lack of specialist knowledge and experience when completing it. Written safety records and documents must be completed to a high standard by trained people (indeed it is a specific legal requirement that an employer must appoint a ‘Competent Person’ to advise them on health and safety). Companies like ourselves therefore offer a Safety Advisor who will implement agreed, specialist actions on your behalf and manage safety on an ongoing basis. Based on an initial audit to determine your needs, a suitable chosen advisor will build a robust, simple and transparent safety management system that is fully in tune with your business needs and budget. We concentrate on a pragmatic approach, with the accent on improving safety whilst minimising onerous procedures and complicated documentation.
