Full health and safety compliance in five steps

At Acorn Safety Services, we believe that health and safety doesn’t have to be a headache.

With the Acorn Compliance Antidote we’ve done all the hard work for you, breaking compliance down into five simple steps:

  • Diagnosis
  • Identification
  • Treatment
  • Education
  • Health Check

Diagnosis is the first stage and, in many ways, the most important, forcing you to take a close look at where you are and where you need to be.

We’ll make sure we can offer you the services you need and that you’re happy with what we offer, before carrying out a diagnosis audit which will pave the way for the next steps.

Through the identification process, our health and safety consultant will pull together a complete programme of works, designed to fit around your business. That way, any work which needs to be done will be completed in the shortest time possible and with the minimum of disruption.

During step three, treatment, we work to fix your health and safety problems, consulting with you on the findings highlighted during the identification process. We’ll agree a way forward, put together bespoke specifications and manage the tendering process for you. Any works will then be managed to ensure they are carried out to your complete satisfaction.

Raising awareness within your team is a key part of compliance going forward, so education is our important fourth step. Every member of your team will be given bespoke training, with plenty of time for questions and answers to ensure everyone is onboard and fully aware of their obligations.

After that, regular health checks form step five, helping to make sure that all the processes put in place are working and that you stay on track.

Health and safety: Covered

At Acorn Safety Services we have every aspect of health and safety covered whether you need support with asbestos, legionella, fire safety, or more general advice on health and safety.

We’ll guide you through your legal obligations and our fully trained consultants will carry out risk assessments and guide you through the steps you need to take next.

You’ll have advice and support whenever you need it, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, a dedicated account manager and exclusive access to a health and safety portal to help you manage everything online.

You’ll have access to all the documents you need and free copies of our bestselling books, Asbestos: The Dark Arts and Fear and Loathing of Health and Safety to answer any questions you may have.

Once your training is complete, we’ll ensure your team is given competency certificates which demonstrate to your clients that your company is compliant – important if you’re applying for contracts or tendering. We’ll also prepare a bespoke health and safety document tailored to your company to ensure its completed correctly and in full accordance with the law.

So get in touch with us today to find out how we can help you with all your health and safety needs – can you really afford not to?
