We are a health, safety and wellbeing consultancy with a keen interest in sustainability and the positive effect this can have for businesses, society and our planet; and we do love to work with organisations that share our values.
These are our values that we hold dear:
To be a business for good - to contribute positively to social and environmental sustainability
To act with integrity - to make ethical, transparent and well intentioned decisions
To be empathetic - to value others and to listen and understand different perspectives and responses
To be trustworthy - to nurture open and honest relationships with all
Health and Safety is a key contributor to a sustainable and successful organisation - most directly through effective management of the health, safety and wellbeing of the workforce, but also through it's contribution to environmental sustainability and it's positive impact on culture, productivity, staff retention and ultimately profit.
We specialise in working with environmentally focused, sustainable and ethical organisations, charities, SMEs and those that operate in an outdoor and rural environment.
Our industry specific knowledge means that we are able to help you create quality, pragmatic health and safety solutions that are appropriate and specific to the needs of your organisation.
The services that we regularly provide are described below; but if there is something you need that you don't see - just ask.

Let us help you to work out where you are with your management of health and safety, so that we can work out what you need to do to get to where you want to be.
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations require that employers appoint a competent person to help you meet your legal health and safety duties. We can be that person!
We love writing procedures and helping to give a structure to health and safety management. Writing procedures that fit an organisation and work for you is an art. We would love to help.
Do you want to implement 45001 as your health and safety managements system? We can help you. Helen holds a 45001 Lead Auditor qualification and can help you to get you certification audit ready.
We deliver internal training courses specifically written around the systems and processes of your organisation. In person, online or recorded presentation, we deliver in the way that suits your business.
Not sure what you need to risk assess or how to do it?
Let us help you to identify your workplace hazards and risks and make sure that they are properly risk assessed and managed.
How do you know if your health and safety arrangements are working if you don’t monitor them? We can carry out independent audits and inspections, from one off visits to full audit programmes so that you can monitor implementation, compliance and performance.
We love the challenge and collaboration of team-work. Buzz Safety can provide health and safety support on specific projects on a short-term or long-term basis. We have worked on projects big and small with a number of clients over the years, nothing is too big or too small.
Psychosocial risks can have as big an impact on our health and safety as physical related risks. Managing these risks can intimidating to employers but it need not be. Buzz Safety can help you understand psychosocial risks, and how to meet the employers legal obligation to manage them in the workplace.
You can’t have the impact you want to in the world, without a team of people behind you. Mitigating risks in the workplace with a sensitive, robust and considerate health and safety strategy provides the foundation of a five-star employer.
People who work in a safe environment are more motivated, more productive and feel like valued employees. This is the perfect combination for unlocking that discretionary effort within your employees, increasing diversity, reducing absences and retaining long serving employees.
We have worked with Helen for over 3 years. Helen started by supporting us with Health & Safety as a volunteer and then as we realised that her expertise was invaluable and our organisational needs changed, we now use Buzz Safety as our external H&S advisors and for our annual H&S audits. Helen offers sound advice and is working with us to create a robust H&S framework that ensures we are fully compliant and in a good position across the charity and all our shops. Helen has built excellent relationships across the organisation and is always helpful, approachable, professional and provides trusted advice and support. Thank you!

We specialise in health and safety, but we don’t have our heads in the sand. We understand the importance of people in sustainable business, but we also understand the need for an organisation to be profitable in order to be sustainable and positively impact its employees and society.
So when you have a health and safety requirement, or challenge, it’s key that this gets resolved in a competent manner. How do we do this?
Let’s have a chat - In our discovery call we’ll understand more about you. It’s important that we talk through how we can work together to get your business to where it needs to be.
Initial Meeting - After our call, we’ll arrange an initial meeting to get to know more about you, your team, your site. Here we’ll aim to understand the ins and outs of what your organisation needs from health and safety.
Implementing the health and safety plan - Once we’ve captured your health and safety requirements, we will create a bespoke plan together. We’ll then use this plan to begin implementing your strategy.
