Services for Academies
The Management of Health and Safety Work Regulations 1999: Regulation 7 requires that “Every employer shall appoint one or more Competent Persons to assist him in undertaking the measures he needs to take to comply with the requirements and prohibitions imposed upon him by or under the relevant statutory provisions”.
Our core Competent Person Support package fulfils all the requirements of the role and is specifically offered to Academies which utilise the EEC Safety Management System (EEClive). Our Health and Safety professionals are very experienced in use of EEC and are able to provide support for all modules. This package is the most basic (cost-effective) that we offer for minimum compliance.
For proactive Academies that wish to fully utilise our professional and technical support for Health and Safety Management, we offer traditional Secondary and Primary Academy H&SM packages. These include all the provisions of the Competent Person Support package plus a further time allocation which can be used for any of the specific and ad hoc services we are able to provide to all establishments.
Standard Daily and Hourly Rates apply to any additional assistance requested – these rates are very competitive and inclusive of travel costs.
