All business owners and operators are legally obliged to consider the health and safety of themselves, their employees, and anyone else affected by their work activities. While many businesses can manage these obligations with no additional help, there are some sectors and types of business where the requirements are more complex and the potential risks to health and safety are much higher. In these cases, it is worth using the services of a specialist consultant.
This factsheet describes the services that a health and safety consultant can provide, and the legal requirements they can help with. It offers guidance on where to find a suitably qualified consultant, the cost of hiring a consultant and how to brief them on your specific requirements.
