Through a consultancy alliance, we can also provide high levels of expertise to help clients deal with the myriad of highly specialised health, safety and environmental legislative topics, for example, DSEAR compliance, Major Accident Hazard (MAH) consequence modelling, Major Accident To The Environment (MATTE) reviews, occupied buildings risk assessments and human factors analysis.

Just some of the services we can provide include:

  • High level audits on your SHE systems by competent auditors to give you an independent view of your SHE management systems, benchmarked against statutory requirements, industry good practice and your own company standards.

Sub-contractor Safety Performance

Sub-contractor safety performance is an area where we can propose an improvement strategy and implement with the client. For example, this would address safety performance, KPI’s, Method Statement and Risk Assessment standards, induction and briefing processes, communications etc. We have a good track record in managing and improving this key area.

PUWER – Surveys

One of the fundamental requirements of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1999 (PUWER) is to carry out a detailed risk assessment of all equipment used in the workplace.The regulations apply to all places of work and require risk assessments of work equipment, from hand tools and production lines to manual valves and large reactor or furnaces, are carried out. They also apply to those in control of work equipment, such as employers, the self-employed and employees when using their own tools.Addison Project can review your current status regarding compliance and help with any corrective action required, particularly where further risk assessment is required and additional control measures or modifications may be required to reduce any risks to acceptable levels.We can also offer practical advice on optimising your existing resources to comply with the requirements of the legislation, using generic assessments and also utilising our risk assessment database.The auditing process can be tailored to suit the individual needs of your business and target areas of concern, such as new legislation, specific functional areas, including electrical safety, distribution systems, lifting operations, civil maintenance of structures or underground services, safety review processes, pressure systems, hazard identification and documentation.Alternatively, we can carry out an ‘overview audit’ of all key engineering aspects of your manufacturing processes. The output of an audit will offer a number of benefits including assurance, identification of non-compliance and opportunities for improvement, plus formal objective evidence of an independent assessment of the fitness for purpose of the key engineering aspects of your business.
