Competent Person Service
Our competent person service helps to ensure your company has access to health and safety advice to meet current legislation.
Let the experts help you protect your biggest asset – your staff.
- Are you competent to provide expert health and safety advice for your business?
- Can you prove your team is meeting current standards when managing health and safety?
Encompass Safety Solutions gives you peace of mind. Our competent person service is designed to ensure that your company has access to up to date health and safety advice through packages tailored to your business.
This service is ideal for businesses that need a designated Health & Safety representative to meet the needs of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.
In these regulations, it is required that all employers must appoint a Competent Person. Often, small to medium enterprises do not have the resources to do this. Let Encompass Safety Solutions help.
What is a Competent Person?
The Management of Health and Safety Regulations 1999 requires every employer to appoint someone to ensure you meet the requirements of health and safety law. This helps to ensure workplace health and safety is up to standard and you are taking the measures you need to comply with the legislation.
A competent person has had sufficient training and experience or expert knowledge that allows them to properly assist you. Small to medium companies do not often have the resources to do this so look to outsource this.
The Importance of Health and Safety in the Workplace
It is a given that health and safety in the workplace should be of paramount importance. This protects staff, helps to avoid workplace accidents and protects businesses from downtime and costly fines. There are also regulations that you must apply by.
Not only this, health and safety is constantly evolving. This often puts pressure on organisations to constantly manage it. However, it is not always possible to employ someone full time to manage safety.
