Health & Safety benefits in detail
As with our Employment Law service, you can rest assured that our staff are qualified to provide you with legally compliant support.
The law requires that every company must arrange for the provision of competent advice regarding health and safety. In this case, competency is defined as an amalgam of knowledge and experience.
All our consultants are highly experienced and qualified: their qualifications and accreditations include CMIOSH MIIRSM and Grad IOSH. LELC will always allocate an appropriately qualified and experienced consultant to your company.
The service comprises the following:
A full Health & Safety management review relating to activities which can be observed at the time of the visit or identified by yourself.
1. The review will:
- Identify non-compliant activities.
- Identify preventative and remedial measures in relation to those activities.
- Compile a management action plan.
- Assess any training requirements.
- Give assistance and guidance in how to undertake these assessments.
2. Design and provision of your Health & Safety policy which will include for example:
- A Health and Safety Policy Statement.

3. A further visit will be made by the consultant to implement with you the elements of your Health and Safety policy. This could be with anyone who has a management responsibility. Advice will also be given on the implementation of the system. You may request changes to the system at any time and amendments brought about by changes in legislation will be made available to you.
