Health, Safety & Assurance Consultancy

There are many areas a business must maintain and manage to remain legally and professionally compliant on health and safety issues. With robust systems in place, you will be able to meet your duties and responsibilities for health and safety in construction, as well as improve quality, employee wellbeing and performance. RLB will show you how. We offer a comprehensive range of health and safety and assurance consultancy services, and our experts will provide the advice and assistance you need to comply with your statutory obligations.

Manage safety more effectively

One of the foundations of a high-performing business is an effective safety management system. RLB can improve yours by carrying out an appraisal of your organisation’s approach to compliance. Our experts can assist in identifying areas for development, creating action plans with priorities and timelines, and providing full support for their implementation, enabling you to create a positive organisational culture.

Eliminate or mitigate risk

Organisational risk assessments enable businesses to identify hazards and plan for their control and management. RLB offers a scope of corporate risk assessments, covering workplaces and construction sites to manual handling and the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations (DSEAR) 2002. Our assessments are designed to offer practical recommendations to eliminate or mitigate any identified issues.

Deliver bespoke safety training

Health and safety compliance encompasses diverse topics but not all organisations have the resources to ensure their employees are equipped with all the skills and knowledge needed to stay healthy and work safely. Our knowledgeable and qualified experts can deliver a wide range of in-house health and safety training courses to meet your specific requirements.

Improve construction site safety

An excellent health and safety record should be intrinsic to every organisation’s quality culture. We have extensive experience in construction health and safety and can assist you at every stage of the project delivery process. This includes policies and procedural development, construction-phase safety planning and documentation, site safety inspections and auditing, accident investigation, and on-site health and safety management.
