Did you know we offer FREE Health and Safety Surgeries?

At Acorn Safety Services our expert team lives and breathes Health and Safety.

We are passionate about what we do because our services keep people safe and help businesses to reduce staff absenteeism and ensure they are fully compliant with Health and Safety law.

As a result, firms can say goodbye to the fear that they risk being prosecuted for Health and Safety breaches which may result in potentially crippling fines, huge court costs and even prison sentences for company owners and managers.

Our experienced, highly qualified team can execute any Health and Safety project to our clients’ satisfaction – from conducting safety inspections on construction sites to performing fire risk assessments at schools and providing a full range of Construction Design & Management (CDM) consultancy services.

As a fully independent Health and Safety consultancy our clients can rest safe in the knowledge that our advice is impartial and always has their best interests at heart.

For most Health and Safety consultancies providing such a comprehensive suite of highly professional services would be enough but at Acorn Safety Services we like to push the boundaries. This is the reason why we also offer a host of Health and Safety advice for free.

We’ve released a highly respected book called ‘Fear and Loathing of Health and Safety’ which helps business owners and construction managers to cut through the red tape, avoid massive fines and stay out of prison and it is available for FREE on our website.

In addition, we also regularly publish blogs – like this one – offering a host of FREE Health and Safety advice, updates on various aspects of Health and Safety law and comments on the latest Health and Safety news.

Now, we’re making it even easier for people to access free Health and Safety information. We have launched a FREE Health and Safety Review Surgery offering firms a 30-minute video call with our Health and Safety Manager John Crockett. John has worked in the Health and Safety industry for about 30 years. Prior to that he had been a project manager and fitter for various construction companies so in all he has worked in the construction industry for around 45 years.

John is offering his time to firms for free because we know that it can be difficult for them to access Health and Safety experts. We also realise that businesses can be worried about asking for Health and Safety advice – not least because they worry about how much that initial advice is going to cost them. We don’t want anyone to go without vital advice that they need to keep themselves and their staff safe and their businesses free from prosecution because they are worried about the cost of that advice. By offering these free 30-minute surgeries we want to eliminate the cost barrier that prevents many businesses from getting the help they so desperately need.

These surgeries give company bosses and managers the opportunity to discuss and diagnose their current compliance with Health and Safety law and to ask any questions about Health and Safety issues that have been keeping them awake at night.

During the video call, John will take them through our 20-point Health and Safety Compliance Audit which will form the basis of a review report. The report is designed to help firms to identify Health and Safety areas they are getting right as well as those areas where their business could be at risk.

If you want to book a FREE Health and Safety Review Surgery with us it couldn’t be easier! All you have to do is visit the Acorn Safety Services website homepage and scroll to the heading: Are you 100% Health and Safety Compliant? Below this is a bright orange button inviting you to ‘Book Your Free Review Surgery Call’ which will take you to an online calendar where you can book a date and timeslot for your free Health and Safety Review Surgery.

Sadly, all too often Health and Safety breaches lead to people suffering life-changing injuries and even fatalities. UK firms are regularly prosecuted for breaches of Health and Safety laws which result in huge fines, court costs and even prison sentences for company bosses and managers.

So, if you’ve been putting off dealing with your Health and Safety management don’t delay any longer – contact us today to book your FREE Health and Safety Review Surgery.
