      Competent Person Advisor Service

      Our Competent Person Service, or Appointed Safety Advisor Service, was initially designed for health and safety advice and support but has since developed to provide an integrated support service that includes quality, safety, security, and environmental management.

      The advisor service is designed to help make life easier and simpler by having unlimited access to templates and specialist expertise over the phone or via email. You are allocated a lead advisor but can call upon any specialist in the group depending on the subject matter. We currently have 8 companies with their own specialisms, and you have access to them all.

      Our Appointed Safety Advisor Service Covers:

      • Designated "competent person" to meet legislation
      • A resource to be called upon, as and when required
      • An agreed number of days for consultancy/training
      • Unlimited access to telephone/email advice and support
      • Sample templates
      • Out of hours emergency contact for continual support
      • Discounts on additional work needed outside of your original package
      • Priority response over non-contract clients
      • Insured Advice as additional protection for yourself.
      • Newsletter updates and alerts sent directly to you
      • Expert witness service for both civilian and criminal liability

      Your Expert Advisor Team

      Our Appointed Safety Advisor Service (ASA) gives you your own advisor team and access to an appointed Competent Person whenever and wherever you need. From Health and safety advisors to quality, security, and environmental management consultants, you will have all the advantages of your own expert advisor team but without the ongoing employment costs. You have full control of the support level and services that you want, including when and where they are delivered.

      We value the importance of developing a good relationship with you as this enables us to better understand your business and how best to meet your needs. One of the many advantages of our Advisor service is that this also gives you seamless access to a large team of specialists in a wide range of disciplines, both within our own company and via our sister companies in the PHSC plc group. You have access to them all at no additional cost, simply subscribing to this service.

      Competent Person Service

      Helping you meet the law

      Legislation requires each employer to appoint one or more competent persons to assist in health & safety management. We are a resource to be called upon, as and when required, and you are entitled to designate us as your “Competent Person”. Our Appointed Advisor Service helps you to meet this requirement, and to designate us as your "competent person".

      Many organisations can’t justify employing their own competent person to guide them through the maze of legislation and how to meet requirements. Companies that have their own competent person often find that some projects require the input of a specialist with a wider level of experience. This is where PHSC can help. This service is used effectively by organisations who:

      • Don’t have the need or resources for their own internal specialist
      • Employ specialists in safety management but want access to our one-stop-shop of technical disciplines.


      Appointed Safety Advisor Service

      The Basic Safety Advisor Package

      Our basic package contract is for an initial period, usually 2 years, and comes with the following benefits:

      1. An agreed number of days for consultancy or training that can be expanded if needed.
      2. Access to unlimited telephone/email advice and support during the life of the contract for no extra charge.
      3. Discounts for any additional work that may be required.
      4. Priority response over clients who do not use this service.

      Each year we agree with you what your anticipated needs may be and adjust the contract accordingly so it is completely tailored to the changing priorities of your organisation. Invoices are payable by quarterly instalments, meaning that the cost is spread over a whole year even if the time allocation for consultancy and training is used immediately.
