Workplace Law’s health and safety practice provides strategic and operational support, advice and project management capability to clients in the UK and internationally, offering a wide range of health and safety services. We believe that good health and safety practice is about much more than just ticking boxes. We see it as the starting point for good business.
We provide compliance support to help employers fulfil their legal responsibilities under health and safety law. In the facilities management and construction sectors we act as CDM Coordinator on construction projects, carry out fire risk assessments, and represent the Client in dealings with the authorities.
We are dedicated to our clients’ commercial success. We work with businesses to help them develop Safety Systems in Procurement (SSIPs) in order to meet pre-qualification criteria for new business development. We help many others manage risk and protect their brand reputation through a variety of different health and safety services.
At strategic level we advise the boards of some of the UK’s leading private and non-profit organisations by implementing a safe system of work in line with business objectives, such as the attainment of the OHSAS 18001 advisory international standard.
Our training capabilities are second to none. We are one of the UK’s leading providers of qualifications accredited by IOSH and NEBOSH, with a dedicated London training centre and a nationwide team of professionally qualified trainers and consultants.
