Health and Safety Competent Person Services
At the HSQE Partnership Ltd our H&S consultants can act as your “Competent” Health & Safety person, fulfilling the legal requirements.
What is meant by `Competent Person’
Good practice in workplace health & safety requires a mixture of technical and legal proficiency, ranging from skills which can be learnt by virtually anyone, through to the set of very high-order knowledge, experience, judgement and skills which make an ‘acknowledged expert’.
A Competent Person is someone who has sufficient training, experience or knowledge of health and safety compliance. The level of competence required will depend on the size and complexity of the situation, as well as the particular help needed.
It is vital to identify the appropriate level of health and safety competency that is required for each set of circumstances. This is where our team can help your business.
Every employer is required under law to appoint at least one Competent Health and Safety Person so as to assist them meet their legal health and safety obligations. This being a requirement under the Management of Health & Safety Regulations 1999. Any employer who has not done this is in breach of their statutory duty under Health and Safety Legislation and therefore becomes liable to criminal prosecution.
