Site Safety Evaluation
Click to expand and compress
We believe that we provide the most comprehensive and useful site visiting service available. The site visiting process is not just a policing exercise, but a prime opportunity to increase the health & safety knowledge of your team.

We walk the site with your representative and discuss not only the current health and safety situation, but also how the site will develop.

It is a simple concept, but one that works well. Whilst on site we will conduct 'toolbox' talks as necessary, and provide you with an 'on the spot' report. The quality of our work is paramount, and we will remain on site as long as it takes.

Site Inspections

Our clients often comment that advice and assistance during the initial set up stages of the site ensures a firm basis on which to develop all aspects of health & safety throughout the duration of the project.

The inspection process examines both the site itself and the statutory documentation that is required during the day-to-day running of a site.

Upon completion of the site inspection, our consultant will give advice to the agent on any problems that have become apparent during the inspection, and answer questions or queries that have arisen since the previous visit.

A written report is then produced which will identify any hazards, risks or any shortfalls in the documentation. The report will also suggest any control measures that should be put in place.

Health, Safety and Environmental Audits
Click to expand and compress
CPSUK Ltd can carry out a full Health & Safety Environmental Audit of your workplace be it an office, plant, warehouse, site, factory etc.

The audit will consist of a detailed inspection of:

  • The working environment
  • Plant and machinery
  • Working practices
  • Control measures
  • Fire and emergency procedures
  • Proactive and reactive monitoring systems
  • Welfare facilities
  • Supervision
  • Equipment
  • Documentation
  • Training - a detailed summary report will then be produced outlining any problems that may have become apparent during the audit together with control measures required.
Fire Plans
Click to expand and compress
Premises are often exposed to a high risk of fire without the knowledge of those whose duty it is to protect occupants, visitors, or any other person who may be exposed to danger e.g. firemen, neighbours.

During the hectic day-to-day running of a business or site, flammables accumulate, fire exits may become blocked or used for storage, fire plans and signage are not updated and extinguishers and alarms become inoperable. On construction sites this is particularly serious due to the increased risk of arson and the nature of works carried out.

Only 1 in 6 companies who suffer a major fire make a successful re-start to their business!

CPSUK Ltd will carry out a thorough inspection of your workplace and prepare a Fire Risk Assessment Plan. The Plan will advise on the control measures and training requirements needed to lower the potential risk of fire.

Appointed Safety Advisor Service
Click to expand and compress
  • Designated 'competent person' to meet legislation
  • A resource to be called upon as and when required
  • A half day for consultancy or auditing built in
  • Access to unlimited telephone advice and support for no extra cost
  • Priority response

Many organisations cannot justify employing their own professional staff to guide then through the maze of legislation. Those that do have the staff, often find some projects are too time consuming or require the impact of a specialist.

The service has been devised in response to the needs of our clients. Basically, this provides ongoing support for those who do not employ a health and safety professional, or is used as a back up by those employers who already have existing in house expertise.

To comply with legislation, each employer is required to appoint one or more person(s) to assist in health & safety management. We are a resource to be called upon, as and when required, and you are entitled to designate us as a 'competent person'.

Each contract is for an initial period of one year, which includes one half day of consultancy or audit built in. An important benefit is access to telephone advice and support during the life of a contract for no extra charge.

If you would like to find out more about joining the Appointed Safety Advisor Service please contact us.
