We’re Here to Safeguard Local Businesses

Protecting people through compliant places and workspaces

Your business must follow stringent legal obligations to remain on the right side of the law. If your business makes a mistake, a breach of the Health and Safety at Work Act can carry a high financial penalty.

We help you protect your employees and visitors inside your premises by ensuring you have a robust health and safety management process.

We can help you brief, train, and assess your employees to make sure safety is built into everything they do.

New Marketing Leaders

“Optimum have taken away the stress and worry of Health and Safety which allows me to focus on growing my business”

Ellis Purvis, Seven Districts

“We use Optimum and they provide a professional, knowledgeable and personal service, which make them great to work with. 100% would recommend.”

George Dring, Pearson Hydraulics

“Optimum’s support right from initial engagement and with Chris Owen, through Mick Purvis’ extensive help thereafter as we worked through the activity, was always of a high, professional standard. It truly felt as though Mick was one of our team. Personable, approachable, and diligent whilst clearly knowing his stuff! Optimum left us in a much better place. We have no hesitation to recommend their services to others nor to work with them again in the future as need arises.”

David Holt, CEO BGB Engineering

“Optimum Safety guide me through everything I need to keep my school compliant and I would not use anyone else to do this as I trust them 100%.”

Graham Hand, The Hayfield School

“I use Optimum for my company’s Health and Safety and training. Chris is a trustworthy person who knows the industry inside and out. I trust him 100%.”

Michael Jorden, JRH Water Management

“I found the training very good and all the lads were really engaged. I think it made a big difference having someone that had done a similar job in the past and had those experiences to train us, it really made the difference.”

John Kettell, Kettell Windows

“Optimum Safety have been excellent. They are professional and friendly and are extremely efficient in how they work. It is a great comfort to know with their expertise and support that our guests and staff are safe and protected in the hotel. Their knowledge coupled with the support tools such as the e-learning, are invaluable to us.”

Tina Pearson , The Petwood Hotel

“From start to finish we received a very professional service. The report we received was clear and easy to follow. Excellent attention to detail. The team took the time to talk our team through the report and explained everything. I would fully recommend Optimum Safety.”

Nick Pettit, The Drill

“I would therefore urge all companies out there to look at their own health & safety partner and question whether they were really there to help when you needed them the most! Optimum Safety most certainly were.”

Your questions answered.

How often do we need to carry out a new risk assessment?2021-12-10T16:33:45+00:00

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) states that your organisation needs to regularly review your health and safety risk assessment to ensure that the risks your employees face have not changed. However, there is no legal time frame for reviewing your risk assessment, and HSE strongly recommend that risk assessments are carried out on an annual basis.

What health and safety documentation does my business need?2021-12-13T09:36:03+00:00

The documentation your business requires varies depending on the inherent risks presented to your business, and the activities it carries out. However, it is good practice to get the following documents in place as soon as possible. These documents are a health and safety policy, risk assessment, fire risk assessment, accident records book and health and safety law poster.

Does health and safety law only apply to larger businesses?2021-12-13T09:40:32+00:00

Health and safety laws apply to each and every business. However, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) understands that it would not be proportionate for a two-person photography business to have the same health and safety obligations as a national construction company. So, even as a new business, you must pay attention to your health and safety obligations.

What are my health and safety obligations as an employer?2021-12-13T09:44:02+00:00

UK health and safety legislation sets a variety of obligations for employers. These relate to the identification and mitigation of workplace risks, giving employees adequate training and protective equipment, and providing adequate first aid and incident reporting mechanisms.
