Health and safety
Protecting your workforce from health and safety risk is a challenge for all organisations and the consequences of poor management can be disastrous. Issues relating to health and safety impacts not only your employees and community; but can cost your organisation time, money and reputation.
The support you need to keep your site safe
To safeguard your workforce, you need to be able to identify risk early and plan for it. And when something does go wrong, you need to be able to act quickly. To achieve this, it’s vital that your workforce embeds a safety culture. When your workforce know the hazards and is mindful of its own and others’ safety, you can avoid most incidents altogether.
We help our clients achieve their safety goals through specialist advice across a wide range of hazards and geographies, as well as management and mitigation systems to help you create a safety culture.

We advise on current legislation and identify the hazards on your site. You’ll receive timely and accurate information on the location and levels of, and how to deal with: asbestos, polychlorinated biphenyls, lead in paint, synthetic mineral fibres and other hazardous materials.
