Safety Advisory Service (SAS)
Competent Health and Safety Advice and Support for your Company
The Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999 state that every employer must enlist one or more competent persons to assist in complying with their statutory duties under Health and Safety Law. Where no competent person exists within a company, the services of an external Health and Safety Consultant or Advisor, such as Safety Services Direct, should be sought.
What does the Safety Advisory Service include?
At Safety Services Direct, we offer cost-effective and comprehensive health and safety support and advice to organisations who need it. We provide you with a competent health and safety advisor who acts as your 'competent person' under Regulation 7 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.
This extensive health and safety outsourcing service includes:
- Access to our health and safety advice line meeting your competent person legal requirement.
You will have access to unlimited advice from your competent health and safety advisor who will be available for between 9-5 every day via phone or email. You will be provided with a priority email address which typically prompts a response to any enquiries within 4 working hours of receipt (though often an immediate response can be provided).
- An annual review of your Health and Safety policy
It is advised that you regularly review your health and safety policy to ensure that documentation is up to date. If you have a policy that was written/provided to you by Safety Services Direct, then we can review it for you annually – free of charge.
- Use of the Safety Services Direct Ltd name & the CV of your designated consultant
With an SAS contract, you are entitled to use the Safety Services Direct name in support of tender submissions and to demonstrate that you have a competent person in place.
- Assistance with reporting incidents to the HSE
If required we will provide assistance in preparing and filing the appropriate reports to enforcement agencies such as HSE.
- 10% off all products and training
- 10% off all consultancy services
This includes our support with CHAS/SSIP Applications, Risk Assessments, Health and Safety Construction Phase Plans, Tender Submissions and Health and Safety Questionnaires.
- Monthly 'Safety Matters' e-bulletin with key health and safety information and updates
You will receive an SAS-client-only monthly newsletter which contains the latest cases, changes in legislation and other important news surrounding health and safety. This means that when you purchase SAS, your details will be added to the mailing list to ensure that you receive these newsletter at the start of every month.
We guarantee a professional and bespoke approach to the management of health and safety issues in the workplace.
Furthermore, Safety Services Direct can assist your organisation in tendering and pre-qualifying for contracts with clients/principal contractors requiring organisations to clearly demonstrate their competence and arrangements with regards to current health and safety requirements.
For a one-off, annual fee, our Safety Advisory Service includes the provision of a competent Health and Safety and Environmental advice and support service.
