The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 (MHSWR) require an employer to appoint one or more competent people to help them implement the measures they need to take to comply with the legal requirements.
A competent person is someone who has sufficient training and experience or knowledge and other qualities that allow them to assist you properly.
Not all companies are able to employ someone on a permanent basis that fulfils this requirement, or they do not have sufficient time to manage health & safety themselves.
In an attempt to meet their requirements some employers will buy into a long term contract (sometimes locked in for 5 or more years!) with a health & safety consultant that only provides folders full of generic advice and support. This is rarely useful as it has not been designed for the individual business and does not provide a sufficient level of health & safety support for you or your employees.
How much does it cost?
