As an employer, you must appoint a competent person to help you comply with your health and safety duties under the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999. A competent person is someone with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to manage health and safety.
You could appoint:
- one or more of your workers
- someone from outside your business
You probably manage most aspects of your business yourself, or with the help of your staff; however, if you are not confident of your ability to manage all health and safety in-house, you may need some external help or advice.
SHE Risk is able to fulfil this role. In fact, we pride ourselves in supplying our customers with the best health and safety support in the business.
