Health & Safety
Being in the trade, you constantly need to procure new business in order to sustain and grow. This demands valuable time spent networking or in the office, away from being out on site, where you are probably needed the most. Growing a company, especially a SME businesses, is a constant juggling act.
To tender for a contract, your bid needs to be compelling. You also need to be able to prove you are health and safety compliant.
Compiling and filling the numerous health and safety forms and answer questionnaires, requires special attention which can be a lengthy and a very time consuming process.
To verify you are a safe contractor, you will have to prove your health and safety arrangements are current and that you have a health and safety management system in place, which is regular reviewed, amended and updated. You also need to ensure, that you have a health and safety adviser in-house or use the help of an outsource consultancy.
If you are not able to produce company’s health and safety arrangements and prove you are compliant, your bid to secure a new project will most likely be unsuccessful and your reputation could be at stake.
