Here for you on Safety and Health at Work Day – and every day

Here for you on Safety and Health at Work Day and every day

ASBESTOS is one of the biggest health and safety hazards in the UK contributing to 2,700 deaths from mesothelioma every year.

To mark Safety and Health at Work Day we wanted to highlight the range of services Acorn Analytical Services provides to help protect yourself and those around you from his hidden killer.

We’ll also explain more about the Acorn Compliance Antidote – five steps to get rid of your Safety and Health at Work Day headaches for good.

Health and safety is our business

Health and safety is our business which makes us the ideal choice to support yours – not just on Safety and Health at Work Day.

Acorn Analytical Services is one of the UK’s leading independent asbestos consultancies, supporting businesses, charities and organisations with support and guidance about the best ways to manage any asbestos in your building.

The first important step towards compliance with the latest regulations is an asbestos survey, which will check for the presence of asbestos, giving you the information you need to take the next step with confidence, should it be required.

We back up our practical work with a range of training sessions, tailored to help raise awareness of asbestos among those working in the construction industry, health and safety officers and facilities managers.

This is particularly important if you have a role which could potentially put you in contact with asbestos without you even realising it.

Introducing the Acorn Compliance Antidote

We all know time is tight, so if you’re looking for a quick solution to all your health and safety nightmares – including asbestos – look no further.

Safety and Health at Work Day is a great opportunity to think about your business and your individual needs.

At Acorn Analytical Services we over a ‘one-stop’ solution covering everything from asbestos, fire risk assessments, legionella monitoring and support with general health and safety in the form of the Acorn Compliance Antidote.

Working alongside our team of highly-skilled consultants, we’ll take you from non-compliance to compliance in no time, simply by following five simple steps.

Our antidote breaks compliance down into five simple steps:

  • Diagnosis
  • Identification
  • Treatment
  • Education
  • Health Check

Diagnosis will enable you to take a close look at where you are and where you need to be.

Through the identification process, our health and safety consultants will create a complete programme of works, designed to fit around your business. We’ll make sure that any work which needs to be done will be completed in the shortest time possible and with the minimum of disruption to your staff and your business.

During step three, treatment, we will work to fix your Safety and Health at Work Day problems, consulting with you on the findings highlighted during the identification process. We’ll put together bespoke specifications and manage the tendering process. Any works will then be managed to ensure they are carried out to your complete satisfaction.

Raising awareness within your team is a key part of compliance going forward, so education is our important fourth step. Every member of your team will be given bespoke training, with plenty of time for questions and answers to ensure everyone is onboard and fully aware of their obligations.

After that, regular health checks form step five, helping to make sure that all the processes put in place are working and that you stay on track.

We’re here for you on Safety and Health at Work Day – and every day. Talk to us and find out how we can help.
