Retained Competent Person Service

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations require employers to appoint ‘one or more competent persons' to help them to meet their duty to control risks at work.

Many SME's cannot afford to employ a full time HSE Manager or Advisor as the cost of recruitment fee's and salary can be prohibitive. By utilising Safetytoday retained competent person service we will take on the role of your competent person and provide professional support based on your service level agreement.

Safetytoday's Retained Competent Person Service ensures that our service to you is:

Right: based on the correct assessment of the risk and taking account of any established standards (e.g. exposure limits) and good practice (e.g. as found in HSE guidance).

Tailored: directed at the actual circumstances found in the workplace under consideration, based on our knowledge and experience of the particular industry, process etc, and tapping into the knowledge and experience of both the management and workers at the particular workplace.

Sensible: concentrating on practical action to control significant risks, not overresponding to trivial risks, not pursuing paperwork as an end in itself and looking to control measures that are reasonably practicable.
