Health and safety is our business

Health and safety is our business which makes us the ideal choice to support yours.

We offer a full range of services, covering everything from fire and legionella risk assessments to asbestos surveys and management.

Fire risk assessments are an essential part of health and safety, ensuring that you have everything in place should the worst happen.

Carried out by a trained fire consultant, a fire risk assessment will identify any potential hazards and give you the information you need to put things right.

Emergency evacuation plans will be put in place and training given to all members of staff.

Similarly, a legionella risk assessment will help to protect you and your team from the dangers associated with legionella – a tiny bacteria which could lead to Legionnaires’ Disease if it is not identified and dealt with quickly.

Our team of experts will carry out an assessment, taking samples from your water systems. If legionella is found, we can carry out remediation treatment quickly to make everything safe.
