Health & Safety Consultancy

It is vital that all organizations comply with the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974. Hygiene Management Solutions Ltd will provide a high quality consultancy service which will enable companies to develop systems that fulfill the criteria as laid down in the Health and Safety ‘Six Pack’ Regulations:

  • Management of Health & Safety at Work.
  • Manual Handling Operations.
  • Display Screen Equipment.
  • Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare).
  • Provision and use of Work Equipment.
  • Personal Protective Equipment.

Our normal approach would be the following:

Stage 1 To meet with the key members of staff to discuss the proposal to audit the operation. This meeting will aim to develop a team approach to auditing and highlight the benefits to the organization.

Stage 2 To tour the site and gather information on the range of the operation.

Stage 3 To conduct and record a hazard analysis covering all aspects of the operation.

Stage 4 To develop recording documentation for each aspect of the operation.

Stage 5 To train all staff in the implementation of the systems.

Stage 6 To monitor the Health and Safety aspects of the operation and provide regular reports on the findings. These reports will highlight both areas of concern and ‘good practice’.

Stage 7 To meet regularly with the team to agree any remedial action necessary to ensure food safety and to ‘fine tune’ the system.

Risk assessments will be carried out to demonstrate ‘Due Diligence’ which will ensure legal compliance and act as a basis for staff training exercises.
