Health and Safety and Dangerous Goods Consultancy Services
By Kevin Whitby
Due to the introduction of new legislation affecting the handling, storage and transport of chemicals, and the management of the distribution of dangerous goods, crop protection and agronomy specialists Agrovista have launched a new consultancy service.
The new advice package offered by Agrovista can now provide specialist advice on safety, transportation and storage issues for farmers and growers as well as distribution and storage companies operating within the chemical marketplace. This service is open to all geographic areas of the UK, and all sectors of the chemical market, not just agriculture and amenity.
David Sutton, Health and Safety Manager for Agrovista says, "We can provide up-to-date qualified advice and written policies and procedures on all aspects of health and safety. This includes handling of product in and out of store and during transport. Our consultancy services are independent and cover all sizes of store or warehouse, whether on farm or used for distribution."
Some of the areas covered by the new Agrovista services are as follows-
- · Safety Policies
- · Emergency Plans And Procedures
- · Storage Requirements (buildings & quantities)
- · Dangerous Goods - Transportation & Storage
- · COMAH (Control of Major Accident Hazard) Regulations Advice
- · Safety Audits
- · Risk Assessments
All advice is provided by an independent NEBOSH certified advisor in Occupational Safety and Health and a Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor (DGSA).
"The cost of training staff to be able to undertake such work is prohibitive in many smaller and medium sized companies. As the legislation is constantly changing and being updated, the need to have a specialist involved in the procedure and audit area is vital - no one can afford a mistake these days" says John Lockett, Logistics Director for Agrovista.For further information on the confidential health and safety services provided, or how Agrovista can help with your safety, distribution and storage, please contact 0115 939 0202 or firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for health and safety advice.
