What does a health and safety adviser do?

Health and safety advisers use their knowledge and skills to reduce the numbers of accidents and the severity of injuries in the workplace.

Health and Safety Advice Professionals

The Health and Safety advice that clients may need from Priority 1 can be straightforward, provided in person, on-line or by telephone. On other occasions there may be a need for in-depth advice or assistance such as devising risk assessments, producing policies and procedures, writing method statements, delivering training or completing audits

Working for Priority 1 your work would cover many areas of health and safety including fire risk assessment, occupational health, legionella control, safe use of machinery and control of asbestos.

Job roles

Our staff carry out many diverse tasks for an equally diverse client base. We work alongside the Directors and Managers of client organisations to develop effective policies and procedures, complete training of employees on safety related issues, and ensure the companies are kept up-to-date with changes in the law. On site work will often include making regular inspections and completing audits, reviewing and updating fire risk and legionella assessments, investigating accidents and recommending improvements in safety standards. 

What do I need to do to become a health and safety adviser?

What does a health and safety adviser do?

Like many industries, health and safety seeks to recruit degree level personnel, but once you’re in the job that’s when the learning really starts. Some degrees may be more beneficial, such as law or sociology, but mostly the degree you’ve earned shows your ability to learn new skills. To become a qualified health and safety adviser, you can either study for qualifications, such as a NEBOSH General Certificate whilst you are working, or take training courses which tend to be more subject specific such as the FPA CO5 in fire risk assessment.

Priority 1 are dedicated to providing great quality service and can only do this by having great staff. Training and on the job experience is the key, so we commit effort time and finances to ensure both new starters, and our exiting team, get the training and guidance they need to be industry leaders.
