OSHC Register – Neal Stone reports

7 Feb

Good news that over 1,200 people have applied to join the Occupational Safety & Health Consultants Register in the week following the launch.  This is proof that consultants attach great importance to the goal of ensuring that practitioners have the necessary competence, expertise and qualifications and are committed to adhering to the very highest standards of conduct.  These are early days and the proof of the worth of the OSHCR will only become evident following the register going live on 4 April.

Organisations who use the services of health and safety consultants will be faced with a stark choice in the coming weeks and months and that is whether or not to use a registered consultant.  The British Safety Council’s advice to its member organisations in the UK will be simple – make sure that the consultant you use has the necessary competence, expertise and qualifications to help you manage health and safety effectively.  The OSCHR should assist you in meeting that goal. Weigh up too the possible consequences of going down the non-register route.

Neal Stone, director of policy and research at the British safety Council
