What are Health & Safety Consultants?
A Health and Safety Consultant is a qualified professional who offers expert health and safety advice and guidance to businesses across the UK. Their purpose is to manage and reduce health and safety risks within the workplace.
Health and Safety Consultants will provide a business with the tools needed to manage their health and safety proficiently, even as legislation changes.
Many of our Birmingham based Health and Safety Consultants have multiple qualifications including NEBOSH, IEMA and IOSH. This guarantees that the support we provide you with is of the highest standard and fulfils your every business need when it comes to all things health and safety.
We also have consultants with experience in a wide range of industries including construction, charities, care homes and manufacturing, so we can make sure that your dedicated health and safety expert has a background in your sector and that they’re the most suitable consultant for the job.
What are the benefits of outsourcing health and safety?
Outsourcing health and safety support is a fantastic way of ensuring that you receive the very best in health and safety expertise without the price tag associated with recruiting an in-house health and safety consultant, which can cost anything in the region of £30,000 to £60,000 a year.
However, with our outsourcing options starting at just £600, you can see why so many businesses choose to outsource their health and safety to us instead of recruiting new staff or trying to poorly manage their own health and safety with the risk of business closure if it isn’t managed correctly.

What health and safety support do businesses need?
The Health and Safety at Work Act states that it is the duty of the employer to ensure the safety and well-being of their employees. This includes appointing a ‘competent person’ in the role of assisting with health and safety matters. This makes health and safety a legal requirement for all businesses.
With the right health and safety practices and procedures in place, you can severely reduce the risk of an accident at work and even, potentially, save the lives of your employees.
Health and safety can be an exhaustive issue for employers, and without the right knowledge and qualifications, you can quickly find yourself overwhelmed with risk assessments and documentation that you can’t complete or keep up to date with on your own. A dedicated health and safety consultant can prove to be both time-saving and cost effective for your business.
Health and safety in the workplace should always be treated as a top priority and with external health and safety support from our qualified health and safety consultants, you will be fulfilling your legal obligation and appointing us as your ‘competent person’. You’ll even have the necessary certification to prove it.
Our Birmingham based health and safety consultancy provides you with a dedicated, fully qualified health and safety expert who has assisted hundreds of businesses, big and small, when it comes to remaining compliant with the latest laws and regulations in the workplace.
