Safe365 management reporting screenClients often ask us at Sureteam to help them ensure that all areas of their health and safety are up to scratch and compliant. In order to assess this, we carry out an audit and check all the processes and procedures are in place to make sure that appropriate risk management is taking place and hazards are minimised.

Our ultimate aim as consultants is to help the business embed a culture of safety across the organisation, so that everyone is aware of how they play their part in assessing risks and mitigating them.

For larger organisations we use Safe365, a cost-effective and easy to use digital health and safety management tool. It enables H&S teams to manage health and safety across the organisation producing clear visual graphs and reports on how mature each area of the business is.

Sureteam is one of just a handful of health and safety consultancies in the UK that are a Safe365 Premium Partner, fully trained to set up and use Safe365 alongside or on behalf of our clients. Read on to find out how it could help your business.
