Retained Safety Officer

Take control of Health and Safety

With developments in Health and Safety legislation occurring almost on a daily basis many companies struggle to maintain legislative compliance. SAFE AND SOUND have provided highly professional consultancy support for over 15 years and for company's requiring a regular professional input we have developed our RETAINED SERVICES CONTRACT.

The RETAINED SERVICES CONTRACT offers safety consultancy support on a scheduled basis. Following a initial meeting a programme is agreed between ourselves and your company to undertake works on a rolling programme basis. Our most popular contract is to provide a consultant for 1 day per month to undertake scheduled compliance works in order to keep the client organisation up to date with their obligations.

The commitment required is set at the outset for a 12 month contract period with a minimum of 4 days a year. The more days ordered the cheaper the day rate and the more comprehensive the service. Every site day undertaken is backed up with a brief service report detailing works undertaken and confirming the schedule for the next visit.

  • Site Health and Safety Audits
