Amalgamate is a health and safety company that is organised around key specialisms and our expertise covers a range of key industry sectors. These include energy & gas, manufacturing, construction, commercial property and retail. Our aim is to provide consultancy services that pro-actively manage the varied health and safety needs of our clients, and reduce the impact of loss on their business. Our personalised service, market knowledge and technical expertise will give you peace of mind, and allow you to focus on the continuing success of your business.
Risks can take many forms and organisations need to have systems in place to manage them and our team’s skill is to identify problems as they arise, and provide practical solutions.
Our health and safety consultancy services provide the right support for your projects, property, people and places of work. Health and safety must be an integral part of any business, whether that is on a construction project or within a large corporate entity. We have the experience to support every level of business, from strategy development to management systems, from risk assessment to systems auditing, and through to monitoring and reporting. We can also assist with ISO14001 and OHSAS18001 accreditation, and a range of other accreditations and legal compliance requirements. Our consultants have a wealth of health and safety risk management experience, balanced both commercially and technically.
Being able to control and protect against risk is essential. We can help you identify potential weaknesses, rectify them, and avoid time-consuming and costly delays in the future.
At the heart of our approach to consultancy is a commitment to understanding the working culture of the organisations we work with, which allows us to carry out our role to the best of our abilities. When undertaking an overall review of your Safety Management System we will be in your office, speaking to you and your team. This approach offers us a sound understanding of the working culture of your business, which in turn allows us to tailor our advice to best suit your needs.
The audit will cover a number of key areas that will be benchmarked against current legislation. This process will highlight best practice in workplace health and safety, while also highlighting those areas performing less well.
Our findings will be presented to you in a report format, detailing the positive and negative findings, general feedback and recommendations for improvement. We will give you the information and advice you need to optimise your overall workplace health and safety, and ensure legal compliance.
Has your organisation benchmarked its safety performance against industry standards and current best practice? Our performance benchmarking service is an invaluable tool in identifying your safety systems’ strengths and weaknesses. Allowing our team of experts to benchmark your systems will clearly identify how they’re performing, where improvement is needed and (of course) where you’re making a difference.
We aim, through our auditing service, to focus on the challenging low frequency / high consequence events. This is the type of event that businesses aim to avoid as they can present a significant threat. Auditing is a crucial tool in detecting system weaknesses before an incident occurs. By auditing your health & safety management systems we would be able to provide senior management with the information that they need to take action to avoid unacceptable loss.
