From assessments and audits to policies and procedures our bespoke range of services can be tailored to your business.

Policies / Procedures

Every company over 5 employees is required by law to have a documented health & safety policy and risk assessments.   When it comes to health and safety policies and procedures, we specialise in simplicity.   Why overcomplicate something when it can be straightforward, clear and concise?

If you need a full Health, Safety and Environmental systems review, or if you simply want to set up or update your HSE documentation call SHAPE.

  • Health, Safety & Environmental Policies

  • HSE Management Systems

  • Safe Working Procedures & Method Statements

  • Contractor Management

  • Permits to Work

  • Emergency Arrangements


Risk assessments are the key to identifying the hazards arising from your business activities.   By looking at who is affected and what control measures you already have in place, we can help you see what else needs to be done to reduce the risks.

SHAPE can help with the following assessments:

  • Building and Site Risks 

  • Contractors

  • Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (CoSHH)

  • Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmosphere Regulations (DSEAR)
  • Display Screen Equipment (DSE)

  • Machinery & Guarding

  • Manual Handling

  • Workplace Transport & Vehicles
  • Young Persons

Accident / Incident Investigation

Following an accident, incident or dangerous occurrence it is critical that all information is captured so that your business can learn the lessons and stop it happening again.

Under the Reporting of injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) you have a legal requirement to report certain accidents or ill health at work.   You may also need to provide detailed information to your insurer to defend a potential claim.

For an independent accident investigation or review, or for straightforward advice following an incident, call SHAPE.

Claims Reviews

If you are failing to manage health, safety, fire and environmental risks and your premises are not fully protected, you may be facing the possibility of future claims. 

If you are effectively managing your business risks, you may be missing an opportunity to negotiate lower premiums with your insurer or broker.

For an independent review of your accidents, incidents and claims history and to see what more can be done to reduce the frequency or mitigate the size of future claims, call SHAPE.


You may already have robust systems and comprehensive procedures in place, but how can you make sure that what you have done is suitable and sufficient?

An independent audit by one of our consultants can allow you to check your compliance and identify if there are any gaps or ways you need to improve. 

Most audits fall into one of the following categories: 

  • Health & Safety Audit

  • Environmental Compliance Audit

  • Asset Protection Audit

  • Fire Safety Management Audit

  • Contractor Audits

To check your company's compliance, call SHAPE.

Training & Competence

You need to ensure your workforce have the skills, knowledge and competence to do their job and that they are aware of their own health, safety and environmental responsibilities.   By providing them with relevant information, clear instruction and appropriate training you will be giving them the tools they need to protect themselves and your business.
