At Guardian Support, we pride ourselves on being flexible and competent in how we advise our clients. Our personable manner and no-nonsense approach to Health and Safety ensures that the guidance with which we provide your business is compliant and working to best HSE practices.
It is a legal requirement for businesses to have a competent person in place guiding them through any Health and Safety issues that may arise in the workplace.
Our Health and Safety advice line enables you to speak directly to a qualified Health & Safety advisor whenever you may need them.
Larger companies often employ their own in-house specialists, but if you are a small to medium sized business you are still bound by the same obligation.
Here at Guardian Support, we can be that competent person providing you with expert advice 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; satisfying your legal requirement and tailoring our advice to best suit your business needs.
We will also ensure that you are allocated a dedicated Health and Safety advisor so that you receive a bespoke and consistent service every time you give us a call.
Who needs health and safety advice?
Every organisation needs access to competent health and safety advice, particularly if you employ 5 or more members of staff, as it is a legal obligation under Regulation 7 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulation 1999.
Many larger organisations will have in-house health and safety experts who provide them with advice, but if you aren’t yet big enough to justify the cost of a full-time health and safety consultant, then outsourcing could be a perfect solution.
Furthermore, many contractors who apply for safety schemes in procurement (SSIP’s), like CHAS, SMAS, Safe Contractor, Constructionline, etc. will be required to demonstrate that they have access to competent health and safety advice.
Do you get a certificate?
All clients who use our health and safety advice line receive a certificate within 1 week of signing up, confirming that we have been appointed as your health and safety advisers. This informs your staff members, clients and suppliers that you have taken positive measures to promote the correct health and safety practices within your organisation.
