Do you need a Health and Safety Competent Person?

Yes, according to the HSE, as an employer, you must appoint a competent person or people to help you meet your health and safety legal duties. This competent person can be employed by your business or can be an external consultant, such as Assured Safety Services Ltd.

If appropriate, your health and safety competent person can be someone within your business who has the right experience, skills and qualifications to provide this service, diligently. Employers are required under law to appoint a Competent Person to assist them to meet and discharge their duties under health and safety legislation.

This is a requirement under the Management of Health & Safety Regulations 1999 and means that employers must appoint one or more competent person to provide advice on health and safety compliance within the workplace.

An external Health and Safety competent person provides the additional benefits of being independent to your business, this is particularly useful when tough decisions need to be made, or, when challenging new systems are to be implemented.

Well, what determines competence?

Health and Safety competence can be determined through the ability to recognise and mitigate risk and hazards in your workplace, also, by ensuring suitable control measures exist to protect workers and others from harm through adequately assessed, safe systems of work.

A competent person is someone who can demonstrate sufficient training, experience, knowledge or other qualities that allow them to assist you adequately, the level of competence required will depend on the size and nature of your business, the complexity of the situation or the particular areas your business may need support with.

At Assured safety, our Consultants are registered with IOSH as Chartered Safety and Health Practitioners, they are also registered with the Occupational Safety and Health Consultants Register in order to demonstrate their ongoing commitment towards professional development and standing. Experience, qualifications and training can be particularly helpful to demonstrate competence; all our Consultants, at minimum, have a degree-level qualification in Occupational Health and Practise, this means that if you do not have the necessary skills within your business to manage health and safety risk, we’ve got you covered.

Your business can choose to appoint Assured Safety to act as your Health and Safety Competent Person, this allows you to focus on what you do best and provides you with additional assurance, knowing that your health and safety duties are being successfully managed.

As a Chartered Safety and Health Consultancy, Assured Safety is OSHCR Registered and our Principal Director is also Trustmark Registered, the only Government Approved, Quality Mark Scheme.

What’s the alternative?

Failure to embed a positive occupational safety and health management system can have a significant impact on your business, your stakeholders, your employees and your customers. It can also cause issues across your wider supply chain.

Accidents, incidents, financial claims and enforcement action from regulators can cause both reputational losses and financial losses.

At Assured Safety, we are very passionate about what we do and, in all cases, we undertake a thorough review of your business and its policies, processes and procedures, including all of your current health and safety documentation. Where any gaps are identified, we devise suitable action plans and work with your team to ensure ongoing compliance.

Our Chartered Health and Safety Consultants can help you to develop your health and safety policy and where necessary, provide additional support to ensure your integrated management system is up to date, this includes a health and safety QMS or Quality Management System and regular inspection, monitoring and evaluation to ensure the system is working, as intended.

A Quality Management System is generally a compilation of forms, policies, procedures and guidance documents that are readily accessible and relevant to your organisation. Once any new systems have been implemented, we undertake a periodic review to ensure appropriateness and effectiveness.

Our Free App also allows your team to quickly produce, comprehensive and compliant risk assessments and method statements whilst they are on site. The application supports image uploads from mobile devices and tablets and ensures that reports can be supported with photographical evidence.

Prompt reporting allows any accidents or incidents to be logged and managed accordingly, additionally, near miss data can be used to undertake appropriate close-out actions, collate statistics and identify any trends.
