Why you need a ‘competent person’:
- Regulation 7 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations requires that a business (for profit and not for profit) appoints a “competent person”. If the business does not have an employee who is the “competent person” it must appoint someone external to the organisation to provide that assistance. Read more about Regulation 7 and ‘competent persons’.
- Regulation 8 of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM) requires allocation of sufficient resources, such as a competent person. Read more about the requirements of CDM.
- Part 2 (18)(1) of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (FSO) requires that a ‘competent person’ be appointed. Read more about the FSO and competent persons.
There are some Health and Safety (H&S) consultants that will only provide you with documentation, some of which probably won’t even be relevant to your business. Ask yourself – How well do these consultants actually understand what your business does and the risks you face on a day-to-day basis?
