BusinessGuard Plus – Your Health & Safety Manager

Let BusinessGuard Plus take the strain and become your HR and/or Health & Safety manager. Here at HAE we do not have a ‘one size fits all’ approach, we provide tailored Health & Safety and Employment Law support packages that are both cost effective and ultra reliable*. For companies where it is not always possible to have an individual employed to give the level of attention required to these two complex areas BusinessGuard provides peace of mind and compliance.

A) The Health & Safety package - 3 simple steps:

Step 1. Invest 1 hour in your business receiving a FREE full audit and report on the company's and its staff's daily duties, ensuring a full understanding of any associated risk.

Step 2. Having got the full picture, we ensure that the relevant systems and documentation for compliance are in place.

Step 3. We assume the competent person role for your organisation and provide continual advice on such things as creation of risk assessments, including specialist ones on fire, right the way through to asbestos management and lots more.

Added 'Peace of Mind'

In the event of a client receiving a HSE Fee for Intervention charge BusinessGuard Plus incorporates an element of financial compensation (subject to a maximum payment of £10,000).


B) The Employment Law package - 3 simple steps:

Step 1. Invest 1 hour in your business receiving a FREE full audit of the existing contracts of employment and consider any areas of difficulty the business may be suffering.

Step 2. Having got the full picture we create bespoke documentation, contracts and handbooks, update/amend and ensure that the business remains compliant with the law.

Step 3. We then take on the role of advising you on all areas of employment, providing phone or web support, and we take charge of providing relevant letters and documents and if an unfortunate situation arises we will also attend the business to provide face to face support to the directors.

Added 'Peace of Mind'

We provide Legal Funding in the event of an employment tribunal for defence costs along with basic compensatory awards (subject to terms and conditions).
