We offer a full range of workplace consultancy services at competitive prices for organisations in all business sectors.
Our services include:
Health and Safety Audit
An effective Health & Safety Audit will outline the main areas of non-compliance and will act as an action plan for correction of any current problems within your workplace. At LIPD, our full qualified and experienced consultants can ensure that you are legally compliant under the current Health and Safety legislation. We can provide a comprehensive workplace auditing service to ensure legal compliance and that "best practice" is being achieved
On completion of the Health and Safety Audit inspection, you will be issued with a high written inspection sheet (if necessary) outlining any immediate concerns, then shortly afterwards a typed audit report will be issued outlining the findings / observations and corrective action required
Our consultancy services range from providing a one-off work place audit or if preferred, an indefinite service over an extended length of time. Dependent on your needs, we will sit down with you in partnership and tailor the consultancy to your requirements. This implementation plan will be developed in partnership with your safety representatives / safety team at a pace and timetable that suits your requirements. If required, we can train individuals to become competent Health and Safety representatives for your business. We can also assist with the development of a comprehensive implementation plan stemming from the recommendations of the health and safety audit.
A Risk Assessment forms part of your Safety Statement and is a legal requirement under Section 19 of the 2005, Safety, Health & Welfare at Work Act.
The purpose of a Risk Assessment is to outline how to undertake work activities in a safe and efficient manner. At LIPD, we will prepare and develop your Risk Assessment using the following process:
Employers need to be aware of, and stay fully compliant with current Health and Safety legislation as well as current employment legislation. Many SMEs are still not up to date in this area. Safety Statements have been required by law of all companies since the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, 1989 and more recently the new Safety, Health and Welfare Act, 2005. The safety statement is effectively a company's documented Health & Safety Management programme for ensuring the safety, health and welfare of all its employees whilst at work. Similar to NERA, the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) enforces these regulations, and has recently penalised and fined hundreds of companies throughout Ireland for not being health and safety compliant.
At LIPD, we can prepare your Safety Statement to comply with all current Health and Safety legislation. We can provide a one-to-one personal and professional service where one of our experienced consultants will visit your business premises to review your operations. Through this visit, our consultant will account for all the potential hazards and risks that your employees may be exposed to during the course of their duties and that all appropriate risk assessments are developed. From this, a company specific, fully compliant, comprehensive Safety Statement will be prepared to meet your requirements.
Mediation involves a neutral party bringing two sides together with the aim of reaching a mutual agreement. It is an informal and confidential method of dispute resolution. Mediation is sometimes used where there are interpersonal difficulties in the workplace, if there are difficulties between managers and employees or if there is an allegation of bullying/harassment.
Benefits of Mediation
It is an informal approach which means there is greater flexibility in how it is used to suit specific circumstances
It is a cheaper alternative to employment tribunal claims
Mediation is also a speedier option and often helps to resolve potentially damaging disputes at an early stage.
