Your FREE, fast-track route to HSE-compliant competence checking
Are you meeting your HSE obligations?
If your organisation brings third-party contractors or service providers onto site, you have a legal duty to ensure that they are fully qualified and competent to carry out their work. Doing so helps to safeguard your employees, visitors and anyone else using your site.
This usually involves manually checking the original certificates and qualification documents of each individual entering your site. It’s a time-consuming process, and the staff on your front desk may not be qualified to judge whether the documents are up to date or relevant. Often, no record is kept to provide evidence that these essential checks have been carried out – meaning you have no defence if an incident occurs on site.
Don’t risk cutting corners on health and safety checks
The consequences of admitting an inadequately qualified person onto site could be disastrous, ranging from operational disruption to potentially fatal accidents. These could have considerable financial and reputational implications for your business and could result in criminal charges being brought against managers.
Fully HSE-compliant competence checks
The services offered by Reset enable you to check the credentials of any Reset cardholders in an instant, via any internet-enabled device. No specialist knowledge is needed to carry out the competence check, as a simple traffic-light system will flag up any qualifications that have expired.
Crucially, to ensure you fulfil your legal obligations, Reset also keeps a record of every check that’s carried out. If any incident occurs on your site, you have proof that you fulfilled your legal duty to check the competence of contractors on site.
