Health and Safety

Health and safety is at the heart of everything we do, and we enable our clients to ensure that it is a key focus in their business and on their construction sites.

Health and safety in the modern age is rarely as simple as it seems – it has evolved to include positive wellbeing, as well as preventing injury and illness. In addition to that, by its very nature, the construction industry is considered to be high risk and ensuring compliance can be time-consuming and complex, requiring additional technical expertise and resource.

At The OM Group, our commitment to health and safety and our rigorous approach means that we always strive to achieve the safest environments possible for our clients – to ensure that their goal of zero-incidents and a safe place of work for all is achieved.

Our consultants are all expert practitioners in the construction industry – meaning that we work with our clients, to add value and ensure that solutions are practical in their application; specific to the requirements of each project and aligned with each client’s specific business operations.

We provide a full range of proactive and practical health and safety consultancy services to assist and advise clients in complying with their duties under all relevant health and safety legislation and to help ensure that employees, operatives and contractors are safe and healthy at work.

For clients with projects or portfolios that require a bespoke service model, we have developed a service and strategy to address these specific requirements. This can include the provision of an appointed competent person and access to unlimited email and phone support, as required.

Legislative Compliance

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015, amongst other legislative frameworks, place specific responsibilities on various duty holders within the construction industry. Whilst the liability cannot be passed onto any third party, The OM Group develop bespoke solutions to help duty holders discharge their responsibilities practically and safely.

We offer a range of inspections, compliance checks and audits to assist in achieving best practice standards on and off-site.

Audits and Inspections

The OM Group provides a wide range of health and safety services on-site, including site inspections and workplace audits. Our skilled staff can assure health and safety compliance and encourage continual improvements in all working environments. Our specialised team provides compliance services across the whole construction sector, including for public and private sector clients.

Safety Management Systems

We are firm believers that occupational health and safety management systems help organisations to continuously identify and eliminate risks; reduce the potential for incidents; and comply with regulations.

The OM Group can assist clients in developing and implementing integrated safety management systems or providing support for developing specific aspects of an existing management system, such as additional control measures and safe systems of work.

Assessments and Safe Systems of Work

The OM Group provide risk assessment support and the provision of safe systems of work for businesses working within all disciplines within the construction industry. These can cover general construction risks or detailed assessments for specific hazards required for compliance, risk-management or reporting purposes.
