Case Studies

Safe Building Scheme

Alan Sanderson, Operations Director of Safe Building Scheme explains the benefits of the HR Dept.’s retained Health & Safety service, Working as a director in a small business you need to wear many hats, and you end up becoming a jack of all trades. However, with all the complicated legislation surrounding health & safety, it’s hard to master, and so important to get it right.  So, when we started looking at health and safety, it was clear we needed support & advice and we turned to the HR Dept’s H&S Service.  They spent time learning about our business while completing a full audit of our health and safety systems, from this they came back with a package containing all our required documentation which was tailored to our business.  The health and safety department then spent time ensuring we were aware of our obligations and helped mould our processes to ensure all health and safety aspects were considered.  The process from start to finish was very smooth and really gives you peace of mind that everything has been done right, and you have done all possible to keep your staff and business safe.”

Did the service deliver peace of mind?

When questions arise around health and safety, it’s comforting to know I have an expert on hand to help, I don’t have to go and research for the answer or take a guess, I simply pick up the phone and get the answers from the professionals, as the health and safety department are always available and always respond rapidly with tailored advice and support.”

Day-to-day benefits the HR Dept’s H&S service brought?

The HR Dept deliver real benefits to business owners ensuring they can focus on the business and running the organisation: “Health & Safety can be painful for any business, letting the HR Dept take pain away with regards to our H&S obligations has been one of the best decisions we have made, as I am free to get on and run my business without having to put much thought into health and safety.”
