Health & Safety Inspector was due to call by and we were not sure if our
company fully complied. Safety is the Key came by at short notice and updated
all our documentation, gave us training and produced a report in no time. We
were very happy and the inspector went away happy too! We would happily recommend
Safety is the Key to any business."

The HSE Inspectors can charge a "FFI" (Fee for Intervention) if they find material health and safety problems at your work premises.
A review of your health and safety will be a lot cheaper before they visit rather than after you get their letter!
The HSE Inspectors charge £129 per hour for 'material breaches' of regulations found on your premise. That means if you have a 15 minute tea and biscuit break during their visit, it will cost you over £32 plus VAT!
Some common problems they find include:
- Items that required issuing a "Prohibition Notice" requiring work to stop immediately;
- Items that required issuing an "Improvement Notice" requiring certain safety improvements to be made urgently;
- Sites can be completely closed down due to
exceptionally hazardous conditions.
We are often called in after Inspectors have visited (either Fire, HSE, Local Authority or Insurance Inspectors) and can help you in many ways to satisfy their requests.
You may have received (or be receiving) a visit from the Inspector for a variety of reasons such as: a complaint; an accident or just a regular planned inspection.
We undertake on-site visits at your convenience and this includes essential health and safety advice and information, as well as Certificated H&S Training if required. We can even provide individual forms to help you satisfy Local Authority Inspectors and make compliance with Regulations as straight-forward as possible.
We have seen real Enforcement Notices issued by Inspectors and, although complex, we can guide you through the process and help get you out of any difficulties.
We have a range of straight-forward services that, with a small monthly fee, can look after your business H&S needs. These include:
Bronze, Silver, or Gold H&S Packages. See Prices for details.
