2016 is now well underway and no doubt you’ll have made a few New Year’s resolutions at the stroke of midnight – but how many of these have you kept?

Whether you pledged to improve your health, become more organised or learn a new skill, what they will all have had in common is the goal of making life better, be it in your personal life or your business. 

If you’re a business owner you’ll have probably set yourself some targets for the year too and now could be the time to make a resolution with regards health and safety. Though it’s not a requirement for companies with less than five employees to have these policies written down, life can be a lot easier if you have them in place when tendering for work, for example. Membership of industry organisations like CHAS can set you apart and say a lot about your business, but admittedly they can be a chore to sign up to, with paperwork and portfolios an essential part of the process.

QSPI specialises in making health and safety hassle-free for businesses everywhere. We know that balancing legal compliance with moral obligations can be a challenge – and that’s the case however large your organisation is. As a business owner, you’ll want to focus on what you do best – the day to day and what makes your business great – rather than the paperwork, and that’s where we come in. We’ve provided health and safety support for businesses within the grounds maintenance sector for a number of years so we know how to navigate the twists and turns of health and safety policy.

Landscapers, fencing contractors, hard landscaping companies and golf clubs are among our clients, all of whom benefit from the peace of mind of knowing their health and safety obligations are taken care of. We can help you draw up risk assessments, safe systems of work, health and safety policies and COSHH assessments, as well as environment aspect and impact assessments. If it’s training in any aspect of health and safety you need, we can provide it, at your company premises or at our headquarters.

With these measures in place you’ll win more business, your workforce will feel valued and you’ll be able to concentrate on your business safe in the knowledge that all this is taken care of. Now that’s a resolution worth making. Contact QSPI on 01772 643573 or email info@qspi.co.uk to find out how we can help you.
