Health and safety law requires that employers appoint one or more persons to assist them with their statutory health and safety duties.

Having a full-time health and safety adviser is often too big an overhead for many smaller organisations.

For a small monthly fee ‘Centurion Alba Consulting Ltd’ will act as your retained competent health and safety practitioner ensuring that you remain compliant with the law.

Our Competent Person Service packages allows you to keep your overheads down by not employing full-time staff members dedicated to managing health and safety issues, but have that reassurance of being able to ask for all the professional help and support that you require.

Once again John has worked tirelessly to assist myself and my web designer. This time I was severely let down by a... hosting company and that has cost me to loose my website, my emails went down for a week and it's caused a lot of inconvenience. John has helped us enormously, well beyond call of duty to get us out of this mess and set me back up again. Highly recommend John to anyone.PS avoid My Server Planet for anything.
