Workplace Survey and Report

Workplace Survey & Report

Finding a practice or consultant that has the expertise and depth of knowledge necessary to provide a wide range of specialist Health & Safety services can be difficult. At Kingfisher Professional Services we deliver advice and support, to help you protect your business any anyone who can be affected by your activities.

Who will my Health and Safety Consultant be and how will they feedback?

We will allocate you a dedicated advisor so you will get to know your consultant, but more importantly, they will get to know you and your business needs.

Your consultant will visit your premises and with your assistance conduct a detailed survey. This will involve evaluating your data and seeing how it compares with where you wanted or expected it to be.

The gaps identified in the subsequent report, will enable you to see what needs improvement and of course, what sensible steps to take for the successful implementation of any necessary actions.

What will the report consist of?

  • A performance summary in a bar chart format
  • An unambiguous prioritised action plan, utilising a traffic light system
  • Identification of non-compliance and proportionate advice for suitable remedial measures
  • Allocated responsibilities for key personnel within your business
  • Identification and recognition of good practice

Construction Site Safety Inspections

At Kingfisher Professional Services we recognise that the construction industry is extremely dynamic with many inherent risks and remains one of the most hazardous industries to work in.

That is why Health & Safety site inspections by independent competent Health & Safety professionals are now considered an essential part of construction site management.

Our consultants can conduct an impartial site safety inspection on your construction site and offer trusted advice helping you to mitigate the risks to health, safety and welfare during your construction project, giving you peace of mind that your company is up to standard.

Following the site visit, we will prepare a detailed report and action plan that is easy to follow and provide supporting photographs where appropriate. The report will detail your current arrangements along with any actions you need to take to ensure you are meeting your statutory requirements.

Health & Safety Management Policies​

Do I need a health and safety policy?

It is a legal requirement to have a documented or written company Health & Safety Policy if you employ five or more people.

At Kingfisher Professional Services we can produce a bespoke Health & Safety Monitoring System tailored to your needs on your behalf, as part of our standard service.

What does your health and safety management system include?

Our Management Systems follow the recognised model as identified in current guidance and standards, which broadly comprises of the following:

  • Health & Safety Policy Statement of Intent
  • A facility for identifying the organisational structure of the company with regards to safety
  • Arrangements necessary to implement the policy classified under headings
  • Monitoring document
  • Employee Safety Handbook

Kingfisher Professional Services will review and update your policy when needed.

Working Documents​

As part of the service with Kingfisher Professional Services, you will be issued with a multitude of professionally drafted and simple to use working templates such as:

  • Fire alarm, emergency lighting test records
  • Toolbox talks
  • Risk assessment templates
  • Vehicle inspection records etc.

Covid-19 Advice and Guidance​

For employers and employees, Covid-19 is continually changing the way we work as we respond to an ever-evolving situation. 

All employers and workers have been affected by Coronavirus. Many businesses will no longer be able to operate in the same way as before the pandemic and everyone will need to adapt to the new working environment. 

In such unprecedented times, it can be difficult to be sure you are doing the right thing.

Kingfisher Professional Services are here to help. We can conduct a Covid-19 secure audit at your premises/site which will evaluate the risks posed to employees who are working and non-employees who may encounter risks arising as a result of your activities. 

Our comprehensive audit report enables you, the employer, to reduce the risk of infection and transmission of the virus.

24-Hour Advice Line​

Here at Kingfisher Professional Services, we have established a multi-disciplinary team of qualified and experienced health and safety professionals from a variety of backgrounds.

At least one safety professional will always be available to offer advice or assistance on all safety-related issues. Which includes assistance with Enforcement Authority intervention should it ever occur.

Health & Safety Risk Assessment Support

As part of managing the health and safety of your business, you must control the risks in your workplace. To do this you need to think about what might cause harm to people and decide whether you are taking reasonable steps to prevent that harm.

You are probably already taking steps to protect your employees, but your health and safety risk assessment will help you decide whether you have done enough or whether you need to be doing more.

Kingfisher Professional Services provides expert health and safety support to help your organisation understand what a risk assessment is and how to develop it, which will assist in protecting your business, your employees and help comply with the relevant legal requirements.

Accident Investigation Support and Guidance

No one wants to have to deal with a serious accident or incident whilst at work. At Kingfisher Professional Services our consultants work with clients to ensure that any accident investigation follows a methodical, structured approach of information gathering and analysis.

What went wrong? Learn lessons and take action to reduce, or even prevent, similar occurrences in the future, improving your overall management of risk.

Guidance Notes

Kingfisher Professional Services have compiled over 100 different guidance notes. You will receive a variety of documents relevant to your undertakings. The guidance notes provide practical guidance for employers and workers on the management of risks to safety and health that may arise in relation to specific hazards.

Assistance with Third-Party Certification

The majority of local authorities and many other organisations will insist on some form of third-party certification for any contractor they employ. 

Many tendering health and safety questionnaires and contractor assessment schemes require that you have ready access to competent health and safety advice and will expect you to be able to detail how you meet this requirement.

At Kingfisher Professional Services we can assist you with the contractor certification process as well as fulfilling the role of the competent person. 

Additional Services

Fire Risk Assessment

If you own, manage or operate a business, you will need to comply with fire safety law. A fire risk assessment is about understanding the potential risks and improving your fire safety precautions to keep employees and visitors safe. 

How can Kingfisher Professional Services help?

We can provide and conduct a comprehensive fire risk survey of your property. The visit results in a thorough assessment of the associated fire risk. 

The fire risk report will evaluate the significant findings and give a subjective assessment of:

  • The risk of a fire occurring; and
  • The risk to people should a fire occur.

Where the evaluation of the significant findings indicates more needs to be done to:

  • Remove or reduce the risk of a fire occurring; and
  • Remove or reduce the risk to people from a fire.

Then ways to achieve this and comply with the current standards will be identified via a clear and prioritised action plan with suggested time scales of improvement. 

Dangerous Substances & Explosive Atmospheres Risk Assessment (DSEAR)

A risk assessment required by DSEAR is an identification and careful examination of the dangerous substances present in the workplace, the work activities involving those substances and how they might fail dangerously to give rise to fire, explosion and similar events with the potential to harm employees and the public. 

What is its purpose of DSEAR?

To enable employers to decide what they need to do to eliminate or reduce the safety risks from dangerous substances.

Our expert associate consultants are fully conversant with the requirements of ATEX and DSEAR and can facilitate and document risk assessments in accordance with recognised standards on your behalf.

Food Hygiene and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) 

Kingfisher Professional Services can assist food operating businesses by ensuring that they have fully integrated food safety management systems in place, which will demonstrate a company’s commitment to meeting food safety regulations. Where this is not currently active, then a fully bespoke HACCP system can be created and implemented, with regular auditing to ensure that the system is fully maintained.

Following the initial site visit by our associate consultant, a comprehensive report will be compiled, listing recommendations for achieving legal compliance and actions required to gain 5-star hygiene ratings from Local Authorities. 

Employee Health and Wellbeing

An occupational health assessment is a consultation carried out by Kingfisher Professional Services associate occupational health professional. The occupational health assessment is used to advise management on an employee’s health issues in relation to their work and to make recommendations on; fitness to work, plans on next steps (which might include specialist investigations by an occupational health physician), a phased return to work and any reasonable adjustments required that could be considered to ensure a safe/healthy working environment for that employee. 

Following the consultation, a report will be written and with the employee’s consent sent to the employer. Each report is tailored to the employee and their individual situation.
