Organisational Audits – Risk Assessments – Competent Person Service

Organisational Audits

An Organisational Audit will find out if your company is doing everything it can to be compliant. Monitoring and auditing the safety process is a critical activity to ensure that Health and Safety standards are being maintained and improved.

Ensure can carry out a comprehensive Health and Safety Audit which involves a detailed evaluation of your company’s existing management systems, methods of work, how hazards are managed throughout your workplace and any unsafe acts or conditions and non-compliance with Regulations.

We deliver a detailed report of the findings with a plan of remedial actions necessary to ensure that your company is complying with Health & Safety Legislation and best practise. The actions in the plan are prioritised High, Medium and Low so that you can direct resources at the areas where you will minimise risk.

Risk Assessments

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 require companies to assess the risks to their employees and others who may be affected by their activities. A risk assessment is nothing more than a careful examination of what, in your work, could cause harm to people, so that you can weigh up whether you have taken enough precautions or should do more to prevent harm.

If a company has five or more employees then the risk assessment must be written down, available to the staff and the staff trained in line with the assessment. This can be a time-consuming process and difficult to manage. Ensure can provide this service for you, ensuring that suitable and sufficient risk assessments are carried out and a realistic program of recommendations and precautions are put in place.

We have many years of experience in carrying out risk assessments of all types, and across a wide range of industries such as: food manufacturers, construction, electrical, woodworking, warehousing, manufacturing, schools and nurseries and doctors surgeries to name but a few.

Examples of Risk Assessments include:

General, Fire, Noise, Dust, Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH), Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), Display Screen Equipment (DSE), Manual Handling, Provision and Use of Work Equipment (PUWER)

Competent Person Service

The management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 state that you must get help from a competent person to enable you to meet the requirements of Health and Safety law.

A competent person is someone who has sufficient training and experience or knowledge and other qualities that allow them to assist you properly. At Ensure we have the qualifications, experience, knowledge and other skills to provide this service for your company. This service is fully tailored and can involve telephone advice with an annual audit visit or supplying a consultant to manage Health and Safety on a weekly, monthly or bi-monthly basis depending on the specific needs of your company.

This service is much more cost effective than employing a full-time safety professional.
