At Johnson Health & Safety, we provide a wide range of health and safety consultancy services, including risk assessments, safety audits and policies plus much more. We give you valuable health and safety advice to help you meet current legal requirements and to protect the safety and health of you and your employees.
Johnson Health & Safety gives full assistance for accident investigation for all our clients inclusive of investigation paperwork, associated documentation and compilation of supporting evidence.
We offer you unbiased advice and we may produce reports and post-accident plans for you following an accident or near miss at your business. We will carry out an incident investigation for you if required.
Adverse Events are:
- accident resulting in injury or ill-health
- near miss
- dangerous occurrence
On your behalf, we will investigate and analyse the immediate cause of any adverse events:
- obvious reason of an adverse event
- underlying cause
- less obvious system or organisational reasons for an adverse event
- root cause
Clear action for any adverse events means:
- you have no injured people, their families or a demoralised workforce
- no civil claims
- criminal action is unlikely
We will ensure that firm recommendations and/or an action plan result from an investigation.
By learning from accidents and incidents we can help improve on your risk assessments and safe systems of work to prevent the same occurrence from happening again.
In many cases, it is extremely beneficial for you to become accredited to a third-party health and safety scheme.
- and others…
Your accreditation can open the door to a source of new clients. Many of these schemes hold a full database of accredited companies available for member companies to view, aiding search and selection of suitable sub-contractors with the necessary skills and experience. Gaining an accreditation, would make sure your business appears in the database so contractors can easily find you.
Johnson Health & Safety will assist you to prepare, complete, compile and submit your application for accreditation.
Your accreditation to third-party health and safety schemes shows you have a well-maintained, live, accessible and effective health and safety management system as well as demonstrating to the contractor your commitment to providing safe and healthy working conditions for you and your employees.

Do you have a Fire Risk Assessment?
Further to the initial launch of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 in the October of 2006, many companies have been penalised in court for not having a Fire Risk Assessment covering their premises.
Johnson Health & Safety assist you in the preparation and development of a Fire Safety Management System, inclusive of a full Fire Risk Assessment, to suit your premises and work activities, and helping you to comply with current Fire Legislation.
Fire damage will cost you money in repairs, loss of business and negative publicity. Some businesses have even become bankrupt as the result of fire simply because they have not fully addressed the fire risks within their premises. Make sure this is not you.
Let us help you create an up-to-date fire risk assessment that could help save your business.
Did you know the HSE could inspect your business at any time?
Health & Safety Executive (HSE) inspectors may carry out spot inspections on companies and organisations at any time with no notice.
HSE inspectors examine your arrangements for assessing and controlling risks from work-related pressures or other health and safety at work issues. Inspectors are looking for evidence that your company has undertaken or plans to complete suitable and sufficient risk assessment in all your activities.
Inspectors may speak to a range of your employees:
- Chief Executive / Owner / Director
- Health and Safety consultant
- Personnel / Human Resources
- Recognised trade union / staff-side representatives
Since 2012, HSE have operated a Fee For Intervention system whereby if the inspector has to carry out more than a simple visit, and finds a material breach of current health and safety legislation, the HSE will charge you £129.00 per hour, pro rata, for the whole visit.
Johnson Health & Safety will help you to ensure your business meets current standards and complies with up-to-date health and safety legislation saving you money from costly inspections.
Training & Toolbox Talks
Johnson Health & Safety offers professional Training and Toolbox Talks for you and your staff to introduce new working methods and to keep you and your employees safe from harm.
Your business benefits when your workforce knows what it’s doing on a daily basis, and you have confidence in the knowledge that your employees fully understand safe working practices.
As qualified trainers, we can deliver up-to-date safety talks in an easy-to-understand format helping your employees better understand the whys, wherefores and reasoning behind the tasks that they carry out on a day-to-day basis.
Toolbox Talks are designed to take no longer than 15 minutes based on your working methods and requirements. We treat Risk and COSHH Assessments in the same way so that everyone benefits by fully understanding each subject.
Toolbox talks usually occur at the beginning of the working day for maximum effect, however we will work with you to meet your needs.
Health and safety training programmes and qualifications are also available for you and your staff. Please see the Training section for further details.
Johnson Health & Safety conduct safety audits to ensure you and your employees are safe.
- building sites
- external sites
- manufacturing factories
You will benefit from a safety audit:
- we outline your non-conforming or areas for improvement
- we provide recommendations and solutions
- we help you meet health and safety regulations
Safety audits may be carried out as a one-off service, which for some companies simply gives you a starting point for the beginnings of a fully documented health and safety management system. Some of our clients prefer to schedule safety audits to take place at regular times throughout the year.
Simple changes to your processes or systems can make all the difference and will ensure you meet the latest government health and safety legislation and good practice.
As one of our clients, you may call Johnson Health & Safety at any time for health and safety advice. You are given guidance in strict confidence on your health and safety issues.
When the unexpected occurs – an accident or HSE inspection – we are available to take your call and advise you of the appropriate actions to take.
Our clients find this an excellent aspect of our service. You have the peace of mind that should the unforeseen occur, we are only a telephone call away.
