How many times have we all heard the phrase ‘Health and Safety is just common sense’, well, as with most statements of this kind there is an element of truth to it. But ‘common sense’ is not a statement that will protect your organisation when putting together a defence for failing in your Health and Safety duties.


With the risk of serious fines and lengthy prison sentences for failure to fulfil health and safety duties, if you take nothing else from this Web page other than ‘Don’t rely on all of your staff having the appropriate level of ‘common sense’ it has been worth the visit.


The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations makes it an absolute duty to every employer (subject to paragraphs (6) & (7)) to appoint one or more competent persons to assist him to comply with the

requirements and prohibitions imposed upon him by the relevant statutory provisions.


What makes a person competent to fill this role, well, the regulations state they should have sufficient training and experience or knowledge and other qualities to enable them to undertake the measures referred to.


Sitesafe UK Ltd have been providing Health and Safety assistance packages to a wide range of businesses and industries for more than 30 years. Our advisors are NEBOSH qualified and involved in continuous development programs to maintain their health, safety, welfare and environmental knowledge at the highest level.


Our assistance packages give your company access to these safety professionals, who can help develop a safety culture in your organisation and fill the role of one of your competent persons until your in-house expertise has been developed to a suitable level.
