Small to Medium Enterprises
At Assurity Consulting our speciality is working with larger SMEs and those organisations who own, occupy or managing buildings where they are responsible for managing the plant and equipment within it (e.g. air and water services, plant rooms, lifts, etc.).
You must also consider the wider context of health and safety and not just “slips, trips and falls” and accidents, more productive time for organisations is lost through, ill health and occupational diseases than workplace injuries. Knowing where your risks are is the start, followed by the priority order in which they should be managed – realistically and proportionately.
Your risks typically will be informed by three elements primarily, your people, your work activities and your place of work, for example;
- If you are a building owner, tenant, have an FRI lease or look after common parts of a property, you will have responsibility for some or all of aspects like fire, asbestos, pressure systems, lift/lifting equipment and Legionella. That responsibility could also be shared with one or several other dutyholders.
- Your work activities could include work at height, manual handling/lifting, display screen work, food, noise, work equipment and driving. Are these routine risks to your organisation and if so how are they being managed to best effect?
- The people aspects of your organisation can often be the most complex and range from location (i.e. peripatetic, office based, warehouse, mobile) to first aid and RIDDOR, chemicals, young persons, equality and disability and training.
Assurity Consulting have a long-term track record of supporting organisations by delivering proportionate, targeted, simple and easily accessible health and safety advice. So, whether you are a tenant, building owner, building manager, landlord or other dutyholder, we know what successful health and safety management looks like.
