Health and Safety Services
What we provide
Strategic Safety Systems provides a complete suite of health and safety support.
This includes:
  • Risk assessments
  • CoSHH assessments
  • Fire risk assessments
  • Manual handling and upper limb disorder assessments
  • Noise assessments
  • Substance or dust measurement
  • Local exhaust ventilation system inspection
  • CE support for machinery manufacturers
  • Expert witness support
  • Training
  • Policy and systems of work compilations
  • On-going support
Will I be required to do any work? 
Unlike other providers who supply a mass of forms and expect you to carry out the assessments yourself, SSS do the whole thing for you.
You will be expected to participate in discussions on the outcomes, particularly where actions are necessary to introduce a new risk control measure or to check that existing control measure are working. 

Will there be interruptions? 
In order to fully assess operations, SSS personnel will discuss activities with employees. However, the interruption in doing this is typically minimal.
Will further work be needed? 
There is a legal requirement that you should update assessments if circumstances change, eg if new equipment is introduced. In addition, we recommend that you review assessments every two years. SSS can do this as and when you request it. Some companies also opt for a short periodic visit, say every 3 or 6 months.
Are we locked into a contract? 

There is no on-going contract; you pay for what you take and can pull out at any time. 
Will the service be provided by competent personnel? 
SSS personnel are Chartered Occupational Health and Safety Consultants and have met the competency levels that this requires. Note that not many providers, even trade associations, have attained this level.

What we don't do in the health and safety service package 
We don't: 
  • Provide forms, etc., and then expect you to do all the work. 
  • Assess risks in isolation. We need to talk to your people and it is a key requirement that we have free access.
