Company: The National Occupational Safety & Health Consultancy – Why use our services?
It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure a safe workplace for all employees. Occupational health and safety should be a company’s first priority, however in the current economic climate safety issues are often sidelined due financial restraints and production deadlines. For Management, there is often a fine balance between ensuring safety, quality and productivity. Spending time and money on safety compliance is often viewed in a negative light, or as an unnecessary expenditure. Safety programmes and quality management systems are often time consuming and expensive to implement. The National Occupational Safety &Health Consultancy have a long track record in assisting companies to achieve compliance with health and safety legislation. Complying with the Occupational Health and Safety Act of 1993 and the Regulations is self-regulatory. In other words, employers are expected to take the initiative in complying, and in most cases basic compliance can be achieved with a limited budget. The National Occupational Safety & Health Consultancy can assist you to identify and manage workplace risks, which is the first step in implementing a health and safety management programme. There are several benefits to implementing a health and safety programme. Improved working conditions contributes to worker morale and productivity, decrease in losses due to product damage and wastage, reduced downtime due to injuries and occupational diseases, and better quality control. Time and resources spent on safety management produce tangible benefits.
Our company offers a wide range of health and safety services such as accredited health and safety training, first aid training, lifting machinery operator training, fire fighting training and emergency planning. To assist your employees to work safely, please contact us now for a fee quote.

An experienced auditor will come to your site and perform a detailed audit in order to measure compliance with the Occupational Health & Safety Act of 1993 and its Regulations. It will start with an examination of your health and safety file, legal appointments and administrative compliance. This is followed by a walk through inspection of the premises. You will receive a detailed audit report, listing all contraventions with recommendations for remedial action. Photos of deviations are included. The report will be kept confidential.
We offer a wide range of training solutions to assist you in achieving legal compliance.
