Competent Person

Legal Requirement for every business

A competent person being assigned to your business is a legal requirement, irrespective of size. It doesn't have to be someone from outside of your business, but you must ensure that the person chosen has the necessary skills, knowledge, training and experience to manage the health and safety requirements of the business. This is generally being able to identify the hazards from your operations, control them in accordance with  legislation and applicable regulations, and advise the business on any changes that affect it as a whole.  

 

Cost Effective 

Many businesses do not feel their needs warrant a full time in house person, and so it can make sense to utilise a consultant to provide the coverage level they require. Our minimum package available provides 2 check ins per year (one is a full audit) and an hour telehpone and email support per month. 

Competent Person certification should never be a tickbox exercise and for that reason, we need to demonstrate we have an understanding of your business, and that you can ask for advice and support where required. 

Our basic competency package, including the visits and monthly support starts from just £1595 and you have the flexibility of adding additional support to a level that suits you.
