I’m already GasSafe/NICEIC (etc.) registered. I know what I’m doing. Why do I need risk assessments?

For those who are already accredited or registered with an accrediting body, it can feel as though they’ve already done their part to prove their competence, so why should they bother with risk assessments?

Put simply: it’s the law!

Strictly speaking, it’s only the law for businesses that employ 5 or more people, but risk assessments should always be performed as a method of good practice and good business. Imagine if a client asks to see your risk assessments to keep their staff and visitors safe on site and you have nothing to show them. Not taking the proper precautions not only endangers yourself and others, it also damages your reputation. Having good-quality risk assessments to go along with your accreditations can only add another string to your bow and boost your reputation.

Sarah and the team at Quest have provided us HR support since January 2013.

Quest Consulting Services provided us with a comprehensive employment structure with contacts and a handbook and have been on hand to help me deal with the occasional issue I have faced with team members through their telephone support service.

As our personal Consultant, Sarah provides a quality, professional and complete service which is great value for money.

Sarah has transformed our HR and has introduced systems that have taken lots of hassle away from staffing issues within our company.

We have worked with Sarah and her team for 5 years and in this time our business has grown considerably. With telephone support available for all our Managers as they need it plus Sarah and her team proactively keeping us updated on changes in legislation we are reassured that we are in safe hands.

The HR software that Quest implemented also helps us keep on top of the routine aspects of HR such as holiday bookings, recording absence, holding personnel records which then allows Sarah and her team easy access to give us relevant advice.

Our Managers have also benefited from workshops run by Sarah to help develop their skills on handling issues such as disciplinary, appraisals, recruitment etc….

The support of Quest is invaluable and provides a much more cost effective solution than employing a HR Manager in house.

Why would anybody NOT have Sarah working 'alongside' their business?

I've known Sarah for many years and she's always been there for me and the business when her wealth of knowledge has been called upon.

We have used Sarah and her team to handle our contracts, handbook and Health & Safety and they are readily available on the telephone when needed or on site at our premises.

Highly recommended.
