The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999: Regulation 7: Health and safety assistance

The management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 requires employers to appoint competent person/s to provide health & safety assistance. Companies can appoint competent persons from within their own organisation or obtain advice from external safety advisors.

The cost of full time internal competent H&S advice for small to medium companies can be disproportionate to the requirements. Engaging SafeWise to provide competent health and Safety advice is a cost effective way of fulfilling your legal obligation.

But we offer a lot more than that?

  • Your SafeWise advisor will work with you in implementing H&S management systems
  • We will review and update your H&S Policy ensuring it is an integral part of your business
  • We assist clients in obtaining industry recognised safety accreditations
  • We will assist and advise on how to complete suitable & sufficient risk assessments
  • We will advise on training requirements as well as providing both classroom and online training platforms

What Our Clients Say

Just to say thank you very much for the help with our CHAS application. Very fast turnaround, fantastic service!

Chris MacGregor,
Aspark

As a business Matthews and Tannert have entrusted in SafeWise to be our Health and safety external advisors, they are very reliable and forthcoming with solutions to any issues that may arise, thorough with their evaluations and offer a first class service that is second to none

Craig Matthews,
Matthews & Tannert

We first used Safewise for up-skilling some of our staff in relation to Risk Assessment. Everyone who attended found the course not only useful but also professionally run, with the teacher able to account for the candidates learning needs. From this our relationship has grown, with further training identified in the next year. Not only is the training professional, but so is everyone else who I have come across at Safewise

Gary Morrison,
Busch (UK) Ltd

Our requirements for Respirator face fit testing were carried out professionally, efficiently and at minimal cost. Also, as this can be carried out on-site, there is minimal disruption to our production. Excellent!

Graham Mansell,

Following a dust mask `Train the Trainer' course 'Thank you for delivering such an informative course, I thoroughly enjoyed it'

Hannah Mason,

Just wanna say i'm loving the online training! Site is really user friendly

Hayley Burford,
Steel and Site

Having spent many hours toiling through the CHAS process for a number of years using external H&S consultants, internal H&S officers and many man hours on site for supervisors and managers, I finally decided to speak to SafeWise who I had been using for a couple of years for training purposes. They offered a very reasonable package which was implemented swiftly, processes were initialised, resources pooled together, advice and guidance given and within a short time frame we had successfully obtained our CHAS certification. Stress free and efficient. Outstanding communication throughout the whole process. Money very well spent. Would strongly recommend SafeWise for H&S consultancy and CHAS.

We have retained Gary and his team as our Heath & Safety advisers for our company after they provided us with a friendly but professional service

Jane Cairns,

I initially contacted Gary at Safewise to provide services on an ad hoc consultancy basis. The quality of advice and attentive service from Gary and his team has been great. They are able to provide the knowledge and flexibility of service as required. Thanks Gary

Jayne Lorton,

Dear Gary / Sean and all the team at Safewise, As we have just renewed our yearly agreement with yourselves it seemed like an ideal point to drop you a line to thank you for all your work with JA Burke Construction Ltd to date. In the two years since employing Safewise as our external advisors we have made great strides in improving not only overall company health and safety but progression for the individuals involved, from operatives on the ground, supervisors, office staff and managers. This improvement has been structured and planned working at a pace to suit the company and the individuals and Sean is always on hand to offer advice and support where when required. Many of the supervisors have seemed to have taken the aspects learned from managing good health and safety and used this to improving other fields in the work environment. Judging from the positive feedback from clients I am sure all of the above can only strengthen our position when competing for future tenders and we look to building our relationship over the next year.

Jim Burke,
JA Burke
