What SERVICES do we provide?

Supporting the bidding process
The award of contracts is often dependant on evidence of an adequate health & safety support system. We can form part of your ‘management team’ to provide you with the necessary health and safety credentials.

“Competent Person” Resource
All businesses are legally required to have in place ‘Competent’ health and safety support – this is someone with sufficient experience, qualifications and expertise to advise them. Many businesses are not large or complex enough to justify in-house experts and utilising LHM Safety Services enables you to fulfil this requirement.

Serious Accident Investigation
We can help you by completing accident investigations and reports, liaising with Health & Safety Enforcement Authorities and providing you with advice and support.
