Retained Health and Safety, Outsourced Health and Safety and Competent Health and Safety

These are all the same sort of thing! if this is what you are after you have come to the right place.

Safewell’s Retained Health and Safety Adviser packages are perfect for you if you need a competent health and safety adviser for an accreditation; you need to take your health and safety to the next level; you just don’t have time to do it all yourself now; or you just want to get your health safety right and complaint in an honest way.

There is a common theme to all our retained customers – we clearly understand the hazards and risks that are relevant to their work activities because this is where accident and injuries to employees can occur and that is where our advice needs to begin. Find out more below.

A retained health and safety adviser is a person or company that provides ongoing health and safety support to your business over a period of time. Retained health and safety advice can also be called Competent health and safety advice.

The support could simply be health and safety advice in person or over the telephone, but may also include other elements of health and safety work including risk assessments, health and safety policies and procedures, health and safety training, coaching, mentoring, safety inspections to name a few.

A good Retained health and safety adviser will get to know your business and the risks and hazards your employees are exposed too – then provide advice matched to your specific risks and hazards.

It is a legal requirement under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations for an employer to have competent health and safety advice relevant to the hazards and risks their employees are exposed to during their work activities, whether that is through an employed person or an external health and safety consultant.

Some typical situations where having external Retained health and safety advice is more necessary than others:

  • You are seeking accreditation to one of the contractor schemes such as CHAS, SMAS or Safe Contractor. They specifically ask who provides Competent health and Safety advice
  • Your company has grown to an extent where health and safety is taking up too much time for one of the employees
  • Your health and safety risks and hazards are beyond the skill of the employees ‘doing’ health and safety and you are seeking specialist health and safety help
  • You simply want to be better at health and safety; look after the health and welfare of your employees; be compliant with health and safety law and have someone to advise you on new legislation, and what you need to do to work safely
