We offer a full range of workplace Health & Safety consultancy services specifically
designed for organisations within the Petroleum Industry.

Health and Safety Audit

An effective Health & Safety Audit will outline the main areas of non-compliance and will act as an action plan for correction of any current problems within your workplace. Our fully qualified and experienced consultants can ensure that you are legally compliant under current Health and Safety legislation. We can provide a comprehensive workplace auditing service to ensure legal compliance and that “best practice” is being achieved.

On completion of the Health and Safety Audit inspection, you will be issued with a typed audit report outlining the findings / observations and corrective action required. Any immediate concerns will be highlighted to you on the day of the audit.

Our consultancy services range from providing a one-off work place audit or if preferred, a retained Health & Safety advisory service which includes the following:

  • A full workplace Health & Safety Audit completed every six months
  • Manual Handling & Fire Extinguisher Training conducted twice yearly
  • Your Health & Safety Documentation fully reviewed and updated Annually as per legislative requirements
  • Ongoing Health & Safety advice and guidance available at no additional cost throughout the year

We will also provide:

  • Advice and guidance on employment law and health & safety
  • Arranging a health & safety review and implementing an effective safety policy
  • Dealing with accidents, incidents, and inspections

This package can provide you with peace of mind and allow you to focus more on the financial side of your business. Depending on your needs, we will sit down with you in partnership and tailor the consultancy to your requirements. This implementation plan will be developed at a pace and timetable that suits your requirements. If required, we can train individuals to become competent Health and Safety Representatives for your business. We can also assist with the development of a comprehensive implementation plan stemming from the recommendations of the Health and Safety Audit.

Risk Assessment

A Risk Assessment forms part of your Safety Statement and is a legal requirement under Section 19 of the 2005, Safety, Health & Welfare at Work Act.
The purpose of a Risk Assessment is to outline how to undertake work activities in a safe and efficient manner. We will prepare and develop your Risk Assessment using the following process:

  • Identifying the hazards, associated risks & evaluating the risk, e.g. low, medium or high.
  • Assessing who may be harmed and why.
  • Assessing current control measures and where appropriate developing new control measures.
  • Recording the findings.
  • Evaluating & reviewing as necessary.

A Risk Assessment can be undertaken as part of your Safety Statement or if you already have a Safety Statement in place can be undertaken separately.

Safety Statement

Employers need to be aware of, and stay fully compliant with current Health and Safety legislation as well as current employment legislation. Many SMEs are still not up to date in this area. Safety Statements have been required by law of all companies since the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, 1989 and more recently the new Safety, Health and Welfare Act, 2005. The safety statement is effectively a company’s documented Health & Safety Management programme for ensuring the safety, health and welfare of all its employees whilst at work. Similar to NERA, the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) enforces these regulations, and has recently penalised and fined hundreds of companies throughout Ireland for not being health and safety compliant.

We can prepare your Safety Statement to comply with all current Health and Safety legislation. We can provide a one-to-one personal and professional service where one of our experienced consultants will visit your business premises to review your operations. Through this visit, our consultant will account for all the potential hazards and risks that your employees may be exposed to during the course of their duties and that all appropriate risk assessments are developed. From this, a company specific, fully compliant, comprehensive Safety Statement will be prepared to meet your requirements.
