What Exactly Is A Competent Person & Do I Need One?
Who Does This Apply To?
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 requires each employer to appoint one or more competent persons to provide advice and guidance to the company on matters of health and safety.
This service allows your company to comply with the statutory provision at a vastly reduced cost to employing a full-time health and safety manager.
You have access to professional support as and when required allowing you to designate Salopian Health & Safety as your ‘Competent Person’ for matters of Health and Safety.
Peace Of Mind
We will ensure that you have the correct systems and standards in place.
You will have a friendly and flexible consultant who will understand and meet your health and safety needs, providing you with peace of mind that you are complying with your legal duties, reducing accidents and incidents to your workforce and others and reducing the possibilities of being prosecuted.
Our Competent Person Packages Can Help You Win More Clients
For Salopian Health and Safety to be the named health and safety advisor for your company, we offer an annual retainer service.
We recognise that not all companies are the same and not all companies will require the same services.
Therefore we offer packages completely bespoke to yourselves.
Alternatively, you may want the minimum level of cover and be invoiced separately for any additional consultancy work undertaken outside the scope of the original agreement.
We pride ourselves on getting to know and understand your business requirements and developing a competent person health and safety package that is right for your business, in terms of supporting your needs and budget.

Our Approach To Health & Safety In Your Business
“Unlike many health and safety consultancies, we don’t hide behind paperwork and offer generic services, but offer a ‘hands on’ and ‘can do’ health and safety approach by providing jargon free advice which is specific to your company. This has proved invaluable in growing our reputation as a leading health and safety consultancy over the past decade.” Sarah Mellor, Managing Director of Salopian Safety Limited
