Is your safety consultant registered ?
A new online directory was launched by HM Government this morning. It was launched to help organisations find safety consultants that they can trust to give sensible and expert advice.
The Occupational Safety and Health Consultants Register (OSHCR) intends to improve the service that clients receive from health and safety consultants. Until now, anyone could call themselves a health and safety consultant and it is believed that the unqualified and inexperienced ones are responsible for many of the conkers bonkers stories.
To be registered on OSHCR’s web-based directory of accredited consultants, you need a minimum of a degree-level qualification in health and safety, at least two years experience and active engagement in a continuing professional development scheme.
As a Chartered Fellow of IOSH, the world’s largest body for health and safety professionals, I’m also bound by IOSH’s code of conduct and committed to providing sensible and proportionate advice.
Surfing on the OSHCR website, you will find details of those with experience in healthcare. Click here to see my OSHCR profile.
