Services for Academies

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 Essential Competent Person Support package fulfils all the requirements of the role.  This package is our entry level package and very popular where schools have their own H&S advisor in house.

For proactive Academies/MATs that wish to fully utilise our professional support for Health and Safety Management, we offer our Management plus and Premium Academy/MAT packages. These will 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 have available.

Standard Daily and Hourly Rates apply to any additional assistance requested – these rates are very competitive and inclusive of travel costs.
