By law every organisation in the UK should appoint 1 (or more) people to provide 'competent' Health & Safety advice. Libben can fulfill this role for ANY organisation in ANY sector!
Every organisation / company within the UK should have access to 1 (or more) persons to give them 'competent' Health & Safety advice. You have a few options:
1. Appoint people within your organisation - You may decide that certain people within your organisation understand all there is to know about advising on Health & Safety requirements. From experience, this is normally added to an employees duties and time may an issue. They may also find difficulty in committing to managing Health & Safety matters. Also, you need to appreciate that it would be extremely difficult to know whether they have the relevant 'competency' to fulfil the role.
2. Employ a Health & Safety Manager / Adviser / Officer - Although appointing a Health & Safety professional may well be the right thing to do, this can be quite expensive. Large companies most probably can afford this but the appointed person may need professional support. (The average salary of a Health & Safety Manager in the UK is circa £35,000 per year. Retrieved from www.payscale.com/)
3. Employ the services of a Health & Safety Consultancy - Appointing a consultancy can help you be legally compliant and for a fraction of the cost of either 1 or 2 above! A multitude of experience in numerous sectors are also on offer with a little or as much as you require!
Libben Health & Safety can help you be legally comlpliant for a fraction of the price!
I attended the SMSTS refresher course on the 30th January - 31st January 2020. The course was presented to a high standard and the tutor gave the group excellent support. I do think the Libben Health & Safety Training office in Birmingham is ideally located. Thanks for the help & support I received on this course. CITB SMSTS REFRESHERKevin Grady
I passed my CSCS course with Libben a few years ago and was happy with the trainer and course. I have continued using Libben for my First aid and SMSTS, the trainers were great and would recommend Libben to anyone and the price was cheaper than the other course providers. Libben staff were very helpful. Will be using them again soon. - CITB SMSTSNadeem Mansha
