Engineering Works Health and Safety
Where the risks are higher, more input is likely to be needed. SafetyWise provided one day a week of health and safety support for a local engineering works. Over the course of a few months, we were able to completely update the policy, systems and risk assessments, as well as carrying out regular audits and checks, providing training and giving advice and support for managers and workers. We also got the health and safety committee operating, liaised with insurers and regulators and carried out the fire risk assessment for the works. Finally we mentored an in house manager as he took over some of the health and safety responsibilities allowing our involvement to decrease to monthly monitoring and support.

Excellence in Health and Safety, Est. 1998
SafetyWise Ltd has been operating since 1998, and is based in Somerset.
We have developed considerable experience of our client sectors, and have also put together highly successful safety management systems for many organisations. Working across the UK, both on site with clients and their partners, and from our office. We have a special interest in small businesses in our local area.
What are we about?
We believe that as every organisation is unique, so the safety management systems which will work best for that organisation must also be unique. We develop and implement systems in close conjunction with clients, and we do not use any standard material, but create fully appropriate documentation at length for the client. This also means that we can build on in house strengths, so as to integrate the management of safety with other successful systems.
We don’t like paper
Systems are about what happens. Files of paperwork are of very limited value. Every word documented has a valid reason, hence our systems are only as detailed and complex as is actually necessary. We also communicate electronically. Indeed, we will print out only on request.
We are not risk averse
Risk is part of running any business, and there is nothing wrong with risk. Our concern is to ensure that the risk is known and understood, correctly evaluated, and that any associated legal requirements are met. At that point – your decision, and we will not be urging risk averse approaches, but sensible management strategies.
