Using our vast experience of the industry we can help you comply with your health and safety requirements.

Our experienced health and safety experts have worked within steel foundries, fabrication and metal work businesses for many years.  They understand the specific health and safety and occupational hygiene issues your industry faces.  This means they can help you improve the way you manage health and safety across the board.

We can assess your current situation, review your policies and procedures, highlight possible concerns and then put together a clear, straightforward and practical plan that once implemented will ensure you provide a healthy and safe working environment for your employees.

We apply our experience of metal working industries to deliver specialist workplace solutions to help you meet and exceed your legal responsibilities and be confident in your health and safety policies and practices.
