Statutory Requirements

Every Company owes all of its employees a duty of care to ensure that their place of work complies with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and all its subsequent regulations and EU Directives.  There is a legal obligation for every Company with 5 or more employees to carry out a General Risk Assessment and to produce this in writing along with a Health and Safety Policy.

The following statutory requirements are carried out by a qualified BPP consultant as part of our standard service.

General Risk Assessment

This provides a complete overview of all the Health and Safety risks affecting your organisation and will comply with the “Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1992” and subsequent legislation. Risks are divided between High, Medium and Low, and we detail each “high risk” hazard applicable to your trade or occupation.  We will also provide detailed control measures in simple “bullet-point” form for each of the hazards identified. The General Risk Assessment will be produced in a written format.

Health and Safety Policy

Having completed the General Risk Assessment our consultant will produce a written Health and Safety Policy.  This document will comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and will detail responsibilities for both management and employees in the control of risk.

Risk Management Report

This is a brief yet comprehensive report, which highlights the following:
  • A summary will show the effectiveness of each existing control measure on a graded scale.
  • Positive factors that the client has actioned in the control of risk.
  • Negative factors – improvements in risk to be implemented plus a proposed timescale.
  • A summary of measures that you should consider implementing in the future, to be self-sufficient on health and safety issues, whilst ensuring compliance with legislation.

Specific Fire Risk Assessments

Following the Fire Protection Act 1997, it is now a legal requirement to carry out a special fire risk assessment.  The Act is set by the Home Office, rather than the HSE, and is, therefore, in addition to the requirements of General Risk Assessment under the “Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations of 1992”, as amended in 1999.  (This will be carried out on the initial visit).

Safety Audit Visits

One of our Health and Safety Consultants will visit your premises, on an agreed timescale, to carry out a Health and Safety Audit.  This will provide directors with a confidential report on current status, thereby enabling our clients to be fully aware of performance and requirements for improvements.
