DON’T PAY THE PRICE OF POOR OPERATIONAL SAFETY

Since the new guidelines were launched, builders merchants across the UK have seen, higher fines levied, and an emphasis on looking at ‘risk of harm’ as well punishing actual breaches of health and safety. Don't take this risk!

BUILDING SAFER BUSINESSES

Since working with Southalls the H&S in our organisation has improved 10 fold. The new H&S systems and reports have been met with enthusiasm by every manager & employee. This has empowered managers to take responsibility in their own branches. This is beginning to bare fruit and improving their working environments. Personnel in general are really buying into H&S which can only be a positive outcome in reducing accidents in the workplace. I would recommend Southalls to all businesses no matter how big or small. Southalls are clearly focused on providing real time health and safety solutions which enables us to concentrate on our core business in a safer environment and in an enhanced professional manner.
