Competent Advice

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 requires organisations to seek advice from a ‘competent person’ to ensure that their business can be compliant with health and safety law.

As an employer, you must appoint someone competent to help you meet your health and safety duties. A competent person is someone with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to manage health and safety. 

For some companies it may not be possible to employ a full-time adviser. Wilby Risk Management can offer your business:
