Health & Safety Services from Assent

It’s essential that occupational health & safety is managed to reduce risk of injury to the workforce. We have several service options to suit your needs.

A) OHSAS 18001 Management System

The internationally recognized standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management provides a structure to the many legal and best practice requirements placed on businesses.

Our consultants can work with your internal Health & Safety representative to implement a management system to the requirements of the standard and, if required, guide you through the process of UKAS accredited certification.

This can provide an advantage when tendering for business, meet insurers’ requirements and protect against insurance claims.

B) Health & Safety Site Inspections

Our qualified health & safety consultants can work with you to design a safety inspection and monitoring process to help your organization maintain good health & safety practices.

Inspections will be carried out by our consultants against your risk assessments and can include items such as:

  • PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).
  • Machine guarding and emergency cut offs.
  • Racking (including SEMA Inspections if required).
  • Forklift and Plant Maintenance Records.
  • LOLER Maintenance Records.
  • Temperature, Noise, Dust & Light.

Generally inspections include photographic evidence of site which is shared with your internal health & safety representative.

C) Health & Safety Competent Person Service

At the top end of our Health & Safety support, we can provide a competent safety advisor service, under section 7 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.

Our advisors are Chartered Members of IOSH, recognised by the HSE as competent and current to advise on your health and safety issues.

The Health and Safety Competent Person Service involves regular consultation meetings, off-site telephone/email support and involvement in your health & safety committee meetings.

It can also be combined with an OHSAS 18001 audit programme and Safety Inspections (discussed above) to provide comprehensive cover for your organization.
