The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, under Regulation (7), "requires each employer to appoint one or more competent persons to assist in the effective health and safety management of their organisation."

The retained Health and Service I offer addresses these legal requirements for a competent person(s) without the costs of a full time employee. I will assist you in managing your workplace specific risk and ensure you stay on the right side of health & safety law as your company H&S Consultant (Competent Person) on an ongoing basis for an agreed period of time with a retained service agreement.

If a Competent Person is not made available then the company is in breach of the Management Regulations (7) and prosecutions may follow.

What Defines a Competent Person?

A competent person is someone who has sufficient training and experience or knowledge and other qualities that allow them to assist you properly. The level of competence required will depend on the complexity of the situation and the particular help you need.
