Our health and safety experts can help you understand and apply health and safety regulations.

Our team of health and safety experts understand the unique demands placed on doctors, dentists, nurses and other healthcare workers.  They will make sure you remain compliant with the relevant health and safety legislation and protect your staff and patients.

We can work with you to create a Health and Safety Improvement Plan (HASIP) that will help you to make your workplace as safe as possible for your staff and your patients.  The plan will be clear, straightforward and, above all else, manageable.

Health and safety management can be time consuming.  However, adequate health and safety management can increase staff productivity, reduce staff absences, and help to prevent incidents that may lead to possible reputational damage.

We understand the healthcare sector has to meet the different requirements of two enforcing authorities; the HSE for healthcare workers, and the Care Quality Commission for patients and service users.

Our team has experience of working for the HSE.  This provides us with a unique insight that enables us to ensure that policies and practices are in line with current regulations and provide effective evidence of compliance in the event of future legal action.
