There are many legal, regulatory and contractual requirements placed on organisations, it can be difficult to manage the compliance regime.
Our legal compliance evaluation audits aim to reduce the burden, by helping your organisation identify applicable requirements and then audit the organisation’s compliance, looking for evidence and control.
Key Themes of Legal Compliance Audits
Health & Safety Legal Compliance
Employers have a duty of care to anyone who may be harmed by the operating of their organisation, including staff, customers and the public.
Health & Safety legislation can be daunting but our health and safety consultants can guide you through the process of meeting the requirements.
Facilities Legal Requirements
Often linked with health and safety, facilities requirements might include maintenance of supporting utilities and fire equipment, testing of lifting equipment or general maintenance of a building.
We can help you identify the legal duties and discuss the best practices in facilities management.
