Health & Safety Consultancy
Compliance is, of course, an integral process to your organisation. As such, Ford Risk Management provide a level of support that reflects our commitment to working with you in the long term – and this is reflected in our 98% client retention rate.
Our team is always on-hand to provide technical support and advice, and with support from xCenta (Online Risk Management), we can provide you with a proactive service to help improve compliance, and a reactive service when you need it most.
Having access to health and safety assistance is a legal requirement; so Ford Risk Management can work with you to focus on avoidance, mitigation and defensibility. We can assist in a number of ways and provide our clients with peace of mind:
Access to advice and guidance
Provide your personnel with up to date advice and guidance via telephone and email support and regular visits. We know how important it is to have continuity of personnel, so you will be allocated to a dedicated risk manager who will work with you, with the added benefit of using others in the team when their expertise is beneficial.
Provide you with regular updates on the outcome of court cases, insurance claims, changes to legislation and best practice to keep you aware of current events.
Assistance with enforcement visits
If you are to be visited by the enforcement authority, let us know. If we are working together, we will support you through a visit and assist with any action that is required.
In addition to guidance and support, our clients will also have access to the following services:
General Risk Assessment
A positive approach to risk management starts with a thorough understanding of ‘risk assessment’. Risk assessments needn’t be difficult or complex. In fact, with our comprehensive bank of risk assessment guidance sheets, our clients have the ability to conduct risk assessments themselves.
Ford Risk Management will also work with your nominated personnel to coach, mentor and train them to build a proactive ‘buy-in’ to the risk assessment programme. This is achieved by providing your nominated personnel with up to date resources and ensuring confidence in creating, implementing and monitoring suitable risk control strategies.
Post Incident Investigation
Ford Risk Management has the ability to carry out independent post incident investigations that will enable you to minimise the likelihood of a recurrence. We will prepare you for possible visits from enforcing authorities and / or insurance loss adjusters, and provide assistance on how to manage your media response. Our clients also benefit from easy to follow templates and forms written to ensure that critical information is recorded.
