Chartered Safety Consultancy
The complex nature of Health and Safety legislation and the resulting duties required of employers can be simplified by utilising CDM Scotland Ltd to undertake various health and safety functions. Our services include health and safety advice in the form of personal visits or phone and email support, Health and Safety inspections to monitor progress, third party accident investigations and assistance with safety management and consultancy systems. All your requirements will be managed by us without you having to add to your head count on a permanent basis.
What separates us from others is that our team have actually been site based and successfully managed large scale projects. As a result, we have learned through experience what works and importantly what doesn’t!
One of our Safety Practitioners will manage your expectations and company requirements and ensure that you have everything in place to demonstrate compliance with the law as it impacts on your operations and undertakings.
Our safety services include:
Every organisation must ensure that they have access to competent safety advice. We can provide both corporate and individual project support to ensure you have the right team in place to manage risk. Even if you have an internal team, we can provide any additional support and backup that may be required.
The service we provide is structured around your requirements and provides comprehensive on-going support by personal visits, advice and support via phone or e-mail.
Our company mission statement underpins our approach:
“To provide a quality of service that exceeds our Clients’ expectations”
A formal management system or framework can help you manage health and safety within your organisation allowing you to set standards and procedures demonstrating your organisation’s commitment to safety.
We believe that every management system should be specific to an organisation and accordingly, we create one tailored to your activities, undertakings and corporate structure. The initial works involve a GAP analysis which allows us to establish what is and, more importantly, isn’t in place.
We can provide both full or part-time health and safety support on your projects, provide additional cover during high-risk operations, holiday periods or just at critical stages of the project.
We’re here to help you!
Every project is different and involves different people and personalities. Most organisations work to a generic template document which is changed slightly with names etc. but remains generic and often useless.
We start all project documentation from a blank page and structure it around the people, plant and procedures that will actually be working and implemented on site. We keep things as simple as possible to ensure everyone can understand what is expected of them and this follows a site-specific process with relevant project documentation.
We can visit sites on a periodic basis to monitor progress and compliance with best practice standards. We don’t just find faults when we are on site - we pride ourselves on working with the site team to find workable solutions which benefit all parties.
We can carry out third party accident/incident investigation services to identify the root and underlying cause of an incident. Our team will find workable solutions to reduce the risk of a similar incident reoccurring.
Our experience comes from time spent working on sites and realising the problems and issues faced. This experience allows us to develop and review risk assessments and SSoW and to formulate site specific documentation and procedures which will work for you.
Learning from the things around us is key to moving forward. We can facilitate project safety risk and ‘lessons learned’ workshops which ensure that the project team identify not only problems and issues encountered but also the positive aspects of a project.
Moving forward, the findings of the ‘lessons learned’ form the benchmark for your next project.
Site and Project mobilisation assessments allow an organisation to ascertain if they are ready both in terms of plant, equipment, resources, etc, as well as compliance with safety legislation including CDM.
We carry out a staged process to ensure that the duty holder is fully compliant at all times.
