As a construction consultancy business, we provide a number of services including Project Management, Quantity Surveying and Contract Administration which are all related specifically to the construction industry. We also provide construction related Health and Safety services which includes the Principal Designer role.
However, there is one role that we offer which is not solely linked to the construction industry and which we provide to businesses in a variety of sectors, and that is the Safety Adviser role.
Unfortunately, this is a role that is sometimes overlooked by businesses who just simply don’t realise they need it.
If you own a business, as an employer you have a responsibility under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 for health and safety in your workplace. The regulations state that;
‘Every employer shall appoint one or more competent persons to assist him in undertaking the measures he needs to take to comply with the requirements and prohibitions imposed upon him by or under the relevant statutory provisions’.
An appointed person can be an employee of your business, however, if you do not have the resources or expertise in house, it may be necessary to appoint an external health and safety adviser to help you meet and comply with your health and safety duties.
This is where we can help. At Austin Fletcher we have the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to help you manage health and safety and assist you in undertaking your duties effectively. We offer this service on an annual basis which we find is the most beneficial for our clients.
If you would like to talk to us about the Safety Adviser role in more detail or have a need for any of the other services that we offer, please get in touch: you can find our contact details below.
