British Safety Council understand that auditing and consultancy are a vital service for many of our clients and in order to help in this process, we have restructured delivery of our audit and consultancy services.

Combined Audits

"The service and advice was constructive and helpful and has helped us to raise and improve our standards year after year. I have found British Safety Council auditors to be friendly and very easy to work with."
James Richard Finch, HIS Environmental Co-ordinator, Liverpool Bulk Terminal.

Introducing remote auditing services

With effect from 1st April, we launched an amended version of our audit services which allows clients to be audited remotely to the ISO 45001 and 14001 standards, together with our unique suite of 5-star best practice audit services, without compromising on the high standards you expect.

You receive all the benefits of a structured auditing process but with the benefits of the initial stages carried out remotely. This is being made possible by advances in technology that allow our auditors to carry out much of the initial assessment remotely. It enables organisations to obtain and maintain certification standards thereby helping to protect your workforce as well as win new business and retain clients. Click here for more information
