Health and safety law applies to all organisations. Employers have a responsibility to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees and other people, such as contractors, visitors and members of the public that might be affected by the activities of their organisation.
Employers must appoint someone competent to help them meet their health and safety duties. A competent person is someone with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience. Where this is not available in house, or where more specialist advice is required, many organisations like yours rely on Cope to provide external help and advice.
Managing health and safety does not have to be complicated, costly or time consuming – but not managing it properly can be! Cope have developed a range of solutions to help organisations meet their obligations, including:
- Health and Safety Audit
- Health and Safety Policy
- Health and Safety Handbook
- Risk Assessments
- Safe Systems of Work
- Site Safety Inspections
- Information Leaflets and Forms
- Management / Annual Review
- Active / Reactive Monitoring
- Accident / Incident Investigation
- Competent Person
- Dedicated Point of Contact
- Telephone / Email Helpline
Cope can provide a simple, or if necessary, a more comprehensive solution to health and safety in your organisation. Our common sense attitude will enable you to take a more proactive approach, allow you to operate more efficiently, and could help you save money.
There are no health and safety problems that we cannot help and support you to find a solution to. Our health and safety management systems promote a safe working environment using a programme of continual development.
With this peace of mind you will have more time to concentrate on making your organisation more successful and profitable. You may already have a health and safety management system in place, and do not require our full service. We are able to offer any of our services as a stand-alone solution. Also see our pages on Specialist Services and Training.
Cope clients can access all their health and safety documentation within our online members’ area, Cope Cloud. See our page on Cope Cloud.
