So how can our health and safety consultants help?

Our health and safety consultants will analyse the work you undertake throughout your organisation from receipt and delivery, movement of stock in and around the premises e.g. forklifts and HGV’s, the machinery and equipment used, and the general layout and arrangements for the premises. This will enable our health and safety consultants to ensure that all the necessary control measures, maintenance procedures, monitoring, and provision of all the relevant health and safety information, instruction and training are being implemented.

Typical services our health and safety in manufacturing consultants provide include:

  • Undertaking risk assessments of the manufacturing activities; for example the use of machinery and equipment.
  • Ensuring that health and safety training plans are formulated for high-risk elements of the business and are subsequently reviewed and updated on a periodic basis.
  • Ensuring that all relevant machinery and equipment is subject to any relevant statutory inspections and routine maintenance, and that all the relevant safety features are in place such as guarding and emergency stops.

At Mentor our health and safety consultants want to provide guidance and instruction for employers and employees who run and work within the manufacturing industry. Our intention is to help you manage your own health and safety arrangements in safer, healthier and more proactive ways.
