Compensation culture and employer’s liability insurance have made health and safety compliance an issue that can no longer be ignored. Accidents at work will never be completely eradicated but when they happen they can take up a significant amount of management time.
We at Wilkins Safety Group have worked with several fixed site businesses who believed they needed to involve outside help after a visit from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or a letter from their insurers pointing out their legislative duties as an employer. Small business owners are often well intentioned but simply do not have the time to manage a safety culture.
Small businesses cannot afford a full time health & safety manager nor do they have the time to get involved in detailed legislative requirements. Outsourcing your health & safety function is the only cost effective way to stay within the law and benefit from good employee relations as well as lessen the claims against accidents.
We are different because we are happy to get stuck in and be a member of your team when required to do so.
Some of the services we provide:
- Risk assessments
- Safety audits
- Safety inspections
- Training programs
- Fire risk assessment
- Annual action plans
Wilkins Safety Group have helped fixed site businesses from small carpentry workshops up to large factories such as Lafarge Plasterboard’s 32 acre factory in Bristol.
What our clients say:
“We like Wilkins Safety Group because they provide a swift, polite and professional service. During a recent factory refurbishment, that took place with us still operating, Jon Wilkins was one person we could rely on to ensure that things were done right with regard to H&S. I would recommend Wilkins Health & Safety to any business”
