KIS Safety has experience working with the following sectors including construction, manufacturing, food manufacturing, information technology, transport, property, warehousing, charities and service industries such as restaurants and cafes.

For a small business just starting out, we can tailor our package to help you establish your commitment to health and safety and at the same time, grow with your business.
For larger organisations, who already have a level of health and safety documentation in place, we can assist your responsible person with a competent person service. This can be in depth working on the front line developing risk assessments and method statements with your team. Alternatively for some clients, we merely facilitate tasks (such as delivering toolbox talks or conducting fire drills) to ensure peace of mind that the implementation of the Health and Safety at Work Act and other relevant legislation is being met.
It may be that you need a one off risk assessment service, to provide a risk assessment as a sub contractor or something more in depth such as a fire risk assessment or a suite of COSHH Assessments, we can help you with all of these areas.
For a lot of companies and one owner businesses, we help in organising your annual health check for organisations such as Chas, Safe Contractor etc. We have a fantastic record with 100% pass rate for all accreditation projects undertaken.
Plotting, planning and executing a training plan can be a difficult task for anyone in business. This is an area that we use to help to improve your business, with employee buy in to ensure the training is utilised in the work place adding value to your business.
A simple way to get started is to conduct a: Review of your Heath and Safety Arrangements for Your Business
We can take a look at what you have in place already, don’t worry if that is nothing, the important thing is to get started. From this we will draw up a cost effective plan of action to suit your budget and discuss the way forward.
We have prepared a brief guide below on the main areas that we have discussed and are possibly what you require.
Risk Assessment and Method Statements (RAMS)
Risk Assessment is the corner stone for any business looking to make its business safer for employees and implement its safety obligations.
By identifying the hazards that yuo and your employees encounter in your business, you can assess the level of risk that harm may occur from them. This will give you an indication of what action you need to take and how quickly, to safe guard your employees and prevent an accident.
Our service can be for the small or medium size business looking for a simple risk assessment, to a larger organisation who requires more in depth assessments for heavy machinery, or specific areas such as fire and noise.Risk Assessments Page
We can help you obtain CHAS Accreditation
CHAS (The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) for under 5 and over 5 employees. The benefits to any business with CHAS outweigh the initial cost by far.
As a supplier you demonstrate compliance with H&S law to any potential buyers and businesses looking to employ your services.
