As a business you have to appoint a Competent Person to manage your health and safety, and if you have decided that you need to address your Competent Person requirements with an in-house role, BCarm’s Competent Person can help you.
We can support you and the individual to help develop and grow their competency and your health and safety management system with best practices. Having worked with many client’s to do this, what they all have in common is that one size does not fit all.
Exactly what you’ll need will depend on your circumstances, whether you are looking to develop an existing member of your team or to recruit a new resource; so we will build a solution that meets your requirements. If you're still considering your options for an in-house role vs an external Competent Person read our Competent Person insight.
Onsite or Virtual
If the pandemic has given us one thing, it’s the willingness to consider different ways of working and we can provide support both remotely and onsite. This means we can provide regular support (weekly/bi-weekly/monthly) once the initial relationship has been established more cost-effectively than days onsite as it can be charged hourly rather than a half or day rate.
It could include:
Providing a technical interview as part of the recruitment process to ensure there is an appropriate level of knowledge, skills and experience to meet the needs of your business.
To allow you and the individual to understand their current level, we can carry out a Technical Assessment and then help build a personal development plan with milestones and learning objectives for progression.
This can be further supported by ongoing mentoring for the individual which could include:
- Monthly 1.2.1’s.
- Technical referral point.
- Helping the individual set up and run the H&S Committee.
- Working alongside the individual to develop Risk Assessments and other safety protections, such as safe systems of work etc.
- Development of Safety inspection Regimes.
- Development of safety performance metrics and KPI’s for the business.
- Study support for NEBOSH or other exams.
Specialist Risk Assessments
Your Competent person may still need support with specialist Risk Assessments such as Fire and DSEAR, which we can also provide. These also represent an opportunity to build knowledge and understanding by conducting these together.
Wider Training resources for the business
To help your Competent Person develop wider awareness and understanding in the business, we also have further training resources that they can access. These include:
And we can also provide ongoing consultancy support both on-site and virtual to support the business as their competency builds.
