Health & Safety Competent Person Service

"Adequate competent persons must be employed to assist the employer comply with legislation"
(Management of Health and Safety at Work Act 1999, Regulation 7)

The Importance of Health and Safety

Springfield Training, Consultancy & Wellbeing acknowledges that it is difficult for organisations to keep up with the ever increasing demands placed on them with issues relating to Health and Safety.

Due to ever decreasing margins, it is not always feasible to employ a full-time dedicated person solely responsible for Health and Safety.

Current legislation states that: "Adequate competent persons must be employed to assist the employer comply with legislation." Management of Health and Safety at Work Act 1992, Regulation 7 Health & Safety Assistance

The importance of Health and Safety cannot be underestimated and by using the Springfield's Competent Person Service, you can be assured that you are working within the law and are up to date with all the latest rules and regulations.

The Benefits of our Service:

We relieve you of the worry of trying to interpret the latest rules and regulations, allowing you to concentrate on the priorities of your own job. Your in-house personnel may well have generalist knowledge, but in many cases, specialist knowledge of Health and Safety is required.

Our value added service ensures that our advisers have encountered most problems before and their knowledge and expertise enables them to devise successful and cost effective solutions.

It is commonplace that independent advisers usually have more credibility with the workforce and employees will be confident that you have their best interests at heart by looking after their Health and Safety.

Quality Assured Service: Our advisers are professionally qualified and are specialists within their own field.
Our service is comprehensive and covers all aspects of Occupational Health and Safety. We understand your needs and our extensive experience allows us to respond effectively.

For added assurance, all our advisers are covered by professional indemnity and third party insurance for your protection.
