COMPLIANCE

Our Compliance service was designed to complement our Health & Safety, HR, Employment Law and Training services, so that we can offer a comprehensive solution to help keep every type of business safe and compliant.

SK Compliance offers a wide range of checks, surveys and assessments, which can be provided as individual services or as part of a package.

Our most commonly used services are listed below, including who needs them and why.

Under the Provision and Use of Workplace Equipment Regulations 1998, as well as The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, companies are required to ensure effective maintenance of electrical appliances. One of the best ways of meeting the requirements of these regulations is through a PAT testing regime.

We can help if your company uses instruments that require calibration and maintenance – from electrical measuring equipment and testing devices, to gas detectors, light meters, scales and gauges.

Required at five-yearly intervals at a minimum, or more frequently for certain places and for landlords – we can advise on the frequency that would apply to you.

Required under current fire safety laws to ensure all fire safety equipment is effective and properly maintained. We can also install Fire Alarm Systems and Emergency Lighting.

Fire extinguishers must be serviced on an annual basis. Our engineers can carry out a basic fire extinguisher service, or a full refill or replacement can be arranged. All work is carried out to BS5306. Training on Fire Safety Awareness and The Use of Fire Extinguishers can also be carried out by our Training team.

If you have fire doors in your premises, they should be inspected on a regular basis to ensure they will still perform correctly in the event of a fire. An effective audit will highlight any remedial work needed, taking into account the entire door set and its integrity within your building.

There can be a number of risk systems in a building, and our highly qualified team can perform an assessment at your site following the guidance of L8 (2013) and HSG 274: Part 2 (2014), The Control of Legionella Bacteria in Hot and Cold Water Systems.

Asbestos was still a widely used resource in buildings up until 2000, so if your premises were built before this time, you must have an Asbestos Management Survey carried out. Our assessors can attend your building, take samples and provide you with a report detailing the type, location, and risk associated with any asbestos-containing materials that may be found.

We can complete full vibration, noise, dust and fume exposure monitoring in your workplace to assess the adequacy of your controls during specific tasks. In order to best protect your employees, a full report will be provided with measurement results, action plans and recommendations.

Our fully qualified Fire Risk Assessors can carry out a full assessment on your building to ensure that you comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

Lifting equipment, fall arrest equipment and other mechanical plant and machinery must be fully examined by a competent person in order to fulfil your legal obligations under LOLER and PUWER. Our inspection services include an assessment of all plant, machinery and equipment, including hoists, slings and chains in your workplace, as well as offering advice on user safety and pre-use checks.

If you store, handle or use potentially dangerous or explosive substances in your workplace, this risk assessment and area classification exercise will cover the legal requirements of Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002, and implementation of the ATEX Directive.

Inspections of all types of racking and shelving, including bespoke systems and mezzanine floors, are necessary under the Provision and Use of Workplace Equipment Regulations 1998 and are carried out by our network of SEMA Approved Racking Inspectors.

In order to comply with the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations and PUWER Regulations, industrial doors must be subject to regular servicing and inspection. A 6-monthly visit is recommended to keep doors compliant and in good working order.

Local Exhaust Ventilation, as well as equipment such as breathing apparatus and the ductwork within your premises, must be subject to regular servicing and inspection. Ensuring a clean and healthy working environment is a statutory requirement and work is carried out in accordance with TR19, TM26, HTM03-01, EN12021 among others.

In addition to the services listed we also provide many more including:

Gas Safety Tests, Playground Equipment Inspections, Racking Inspections, Roller Shutter Door Maintenance, Automatic Door Maintenance, Sprinkler Servicing, Lifting Equipment Servicing, Lightening Protection Maintenance, CCTV Maintenance, Access and Intruder Alarm Maintenance & Pest Control Services.
