Competent Person Service

Our Competent Person Service will help you meet the requirements of the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999. These regulations require that each employer appoints a competent person to assist in health and safety management. If you do not currently have a full-time health and safety adviser but want access to sensible and practical health and safety advice throughout the year, one of our retained packages could be just what you are looking for.

We can provide you with a retained service from as little as £49+vat per month (for a low risk business, with less than 5 employees) offering you peace of mind for a fixed monthly fee. 

By appointing Dean Partnership Ltd as your Competent Person, you will benefit from our expert knowledge and experience and rest safe in the knowledge that we will ensure you are working in compliance with all current legislation. You can call on us as and when needed, use our name as your Competent Person to your Insurance provider, on pre-qualification questionnaires and to accreditation bodies such as SMAS, CHAS and Constructionline etc.

Email us or ring us on 0845 643 1950 if you would like more information about our Competent Person packages and prices.

See below for examples of the different kinds of packages we offer to suit the size of your Company, your specific needs and your budget.
