HardmanHSC.com provides an extensive variety of health and safety advisory and consultancy services, including audits, inspections, risk assessments, policies, manuals, employee handbooks and retainer agreements.

The main Health and Safety Scheme is SSIP (Safety Schemes In Procurement)

Since its launch in 2009, SSIP activity has increasingly been able to cut pre-qualification costs and bureaucracy in the supply chain. With the ever-present prospect of government legislation to reduce wasteful and excessive pre-qualification, SSIP is concentrating on making cross-recognition of member schemes as effective as possible, and on highlighting the resulting savings to the supply chain.

HardmanHSC.com can support you through the process or complete it on your behalf.

It is a legal requirement for organisations with 5 or more staff to carry out documented health and safety risk assessments of all of their significant hazards. Although it is your responsibility to undertake risk assessments on your premises HardmanHSC.com offer risk assessment services and can support your through the process.

The Health & Safety Executive guidance advocates a 5-step approach to risk assessments:

  1. Identify the hazards present (a hazard is anything with the potential to cause harm e.g. slippery floors, electrical equipment, lifting heavy objects, stress, machinery, fire etc.).
  2. Identify the people at risk from the hazards e.g. employees, contractors, visitors etc. Particularly vulnerable employees should also be considered e.g. young people and new/expectant mothers.
  3. Evaluate the risk, considering the likelihood and severity of any accidents. Existing controls in place should be identified and evaluated.
  4. Record the findings on a suitable form.
  5. Review the risk assessment regularly.

Risk assessments are vital to creating a healthy, safe working environment. You will need to perform a risk assessment to identify and avoid hazards and risks in your workplace, regardless of the size of your business. You can then help to prevent occupational accidents and ill health by taking precautionary measures.

HardmanHSC.com can support you through the risk assessment process or can carry out the risk assessments on your behalf.

In order to comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, it is necessary to complete a specific fire related risk assessment. The fire risk assessment takes into consideration all employees and any other persons who may be affected by a fire within the workplace and surrounding areas. The assessment must be documented when more than five people are employed in the workplace.

Failure to compile a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment may result in the local fire authority taking enforcement action on employers or owners of premises.
