Specialist help

You may decide that you need external, specialist help if your business has particularly hazardous or complex processes.

However, it’s important to note that specialist help only contributes towards your health and safety management system. It does not mean that you can remove yourself from your responsibilities.

Useful sources of advice may include:

Trade associations.

  • Safety groups
  • Trade unions
  • Consultants 
  • Local or national safety bodies
  • Health and safety training providers
  • Health and safety equipment suppliers.
