Appointing a competent person to manage your health & safety duties is a legal requirement under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

Key features

All businesses, no matter what their activities, are required to have systems in place to protect the safety and health of their employees. The complexity of the management system will depend on the activities being undertaken, and the risks they present. 2SB can make sure you meet your obligations by:

  • Creating a documented health & saftey policy (legally required for any business of 5 employees or more)
  • Helping to write risk assessments to cover all activities and scenarios undertaken by the business
  • Creating induction programmes that sufficiently cover the organisation's health & safety arrangements
  • Writing fire risk assessments and plans to cover all sites under your control
  • Advising on other fire arrangements
  • Conducting health & safety site audits to ensure that controls are effectively implemented and there are no outstanding risks
  • Where there are uncontrolled risks, we can advise on mitigation activities
  • Advising on how to manage COSHH - including storage, disposal and creation of risk assessments
  • Advising on how to manage known areas of asbestos within the premises
  • Delivering toolbox talks and awareness sessions on topics such as manual handling and working at height

What does it cost?

At 2SB our implementation costs are calculated by the number of days the implementation will take, and are based on the number of standards which you wish to implement at the same time.

The first part of the process os for us to understand how much you already have in place. We normally do throught a quick GAP Analysis and once contacted, we can we quickly put together a proposal on cost once we have learnt a little more about your business. This can range from a few consulting days (between £2500 to around £7000) depending on how long your implementation will require. Costs will vary so its best to get a GAP Analysis and proposal done before you finalise the budget.

In addition there are the costs of certification which are again calculated on a daily rate by the Certification Body and depend on the size of your organisation and the number of standards you want certified. In order to remain certified you will have to pay for annual surviellance costs as well as every third year for the costs of recertification. Costs from an accreditation body can very from around £3000 upwards. It will depend on how many standards you have, the number of staff and other things like the rate the auditor is charged at.
