Construction Health and Safety Consultants in Devon and Cornwall
From our North Devon offices, Your Safety Advisor Ltd works with builders and contractors across North Devon, South Devon, Somerset and Cornwall.
From Bideford and Barnstaple to Plymouth and Exeter, and from Bude to Truro to Falmouth we have Devon and Cornwall covered. We’re one of the UK’s leading Health and Safety Consultancies and we specialise in working with small and medium sized builders, contractors and tradesmen who cannot justify having their own in-house Health and Safety Advisor. So from our offices between Bideford and Barnstaple in North Devon, we have easy access across the south west to work with our construction based clients across Devon and Cornwall.
We are one of the leading Construction Health and Safety Consultants not only in Devon and Cornwall, but also across the UK. We work with a vast number of contractors across the whole of the UK, each of whom valve the competent health and safety advice and support that Your Safety Advisor Ltd provides.
Your Safety Advisor Ltd specialises in Construction Safety, that’s it, Construction and Building related Health and Safety is our area of expertise.
Unlike other Health and Safety Consultants, we have not diversified in to health and safety for Shops and Offices or Food Safety or manufacturing, we’ve stayed true to our roots and Your Safety Advisor Ltd only deals with Construction and Building related Health and Safety.
We work with and support all trades and professions in the construction and building sectors, including, but not limited to:
- Carpenters & Joiners
- Plumbing and Heating/Gas Engineers
- Drainage Contractors
- Roofing Contractors
- Electricians and Electrical Engineers
- Flooring Contractors
- Fit Out Contractors
- Dry Lining Contractors
- Plastering Contractors
- Painting and Decorating Contractors
- Civil Engineering contractors
- Utilities Contractors
- Project Managers
- Construction Managers
- Principal Constructors
- Self employed Tradesmen/Sole Traders
- Ltd Companies, large and small
Just like most of our clients, we’re a relatively small company. But as a small Construction Health and Safety Consultancy we’re competent and responsive meaning we can reactive quickly to our clients needs. Plus, as far as Construction Health and Safety Advisors go, we really do understand what you need.
We’ve been working as Construction Health and Safety Advisors and consultants from our North Devon base for around 20 years, but we don’t only work in North Devon, we provide Health and Safety Consultancy services to builders and contractors all over the UK. And even before we started trading as Health and Safety Consultants our Principal Health and Safety Advisor was working on construction sites and in design offices as a Chartered Civil Engineer in various parts of the UK including Devon and Cornwall; Wales; the NW; the SE and even in the Isle of Man. This is what makes us different….. we understand the construction industry, having worked in it as construction consultants for many years and this is what helps to make us a better Construction Health and Safety Advisor.
Very few health and safety advisors have the level of experience and knowledge of the building and construction industry that we have, so if you’re in North Devon; South Devon; Mid Devon; West Devon; or Cornwall and would like to meet up for a coffee to see what we can do for you, then get it touch with us today, it may be the best move you’ve made for some time!
Also a lot of our prospective clients tell us that they’ve already got a Health and Safety Advisor, but we start to ask about their experience and the level of service provided it soon becomes apparent that most are pretty dissatisfied with the service offered by their current Health and Safety Advisors. This is actually more important than you may realise……… if you’re not happy with the service your existing health and safety advisor is providing, then you could potentially be negligent in your duties (Regulation 7 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999) which require you to have access to “COMPETENT HEALTH AND SAFETY ADVICE AND SUPPORT FOR YOUR BUSINESS“. Its ultimately your responsibility to source ‘Competent’ advice and support, so a few simple questions to ask of your Health and Safety Advisors:
- Are the Chartered Members of IOSH and have the CMIOSH designation? We do…..
- Do they have direct Construction Knowledge and Experience of working in the construction industry at an appropriate level? We do…..
- Do they have appropriate Professional Health and Safety Qualifications such as NEBOSH Diploma (or NVQ Level 6 or above)? We do…..
- Do they have appropriate Construction Related Qualifications (Degree level of above)? We do…..
- Do they have Chartered Membership of Professional Construction Institutions? We do…..
Your Construction or Building Health and Safety Advisor should be able to demonstrate compliance with each of the above, but unfortunately many simply do not. We’ve encountered everyone from Hotel Receptionists to Retail Staff to Production Workers and others, most of whom have never actually worked in the construction industry, but suddenly claim to be experts. Worse still they’ll often be poorly qualified having completed short IOSH or NEBOSH introductory courses, which to those outside of the Health and Safety industry may look impressive, but in reality hold very little worth.
It really is a case of making sure you complete your due diligence, you’ll know if you’ve completed an SSIP Accreditation for CHAS; SMAS or SafeContractor etc that they will want evidence that you’ve assessed your sub-contractors competence, but at present, few checks are ever made on the competence of your Health and Safety Advisor, but that is changing, so don’t get caught out.
At Your Safety Advisor Ltd, our Construction Health and Safety Consultants are based in Devon and Cornwall and more importantly, as they come from a construction background, so they’ve actually worked on site and understand how the construction industry and construction site work and operate. That can be priceless when giving advice and support to our clients. But in addition to that we also hold the gold standard CMIOSH accreditation, the membership standard that IOSH recommends anyone providing Health and Safety Advice should hold.
We’ve all seen the Safety Advisors who turn up on site and start causing problems and issues, plus we all know that they’ve never actually worked on a site and have no idea of what is actually happening…… Well with Your Safety Advisor Ltd, that will never be the case, we’re there to work with you and support you! We want to make sure business better and more successful.
Yes of course we want you to be working safely and we want to make sure you and where applicable your employees and sub-contractors are kept safe and healthy, but we’ll do it in a constructive and positive way, we’ll help and guide you, offering you solutions, not problems.
So if you need a competent Construction Health and Safety Consultant in Devon or Cornwall, or you’re simply fed up with with the poor service from your existing Health and Safety Advisor, get in touch with Your Safety Advisor Ltd today, we’re here to help support and grow your construction business.
