New Level Safety was founded in response to a market need for Health & Safety compliance solutions involving minimal bureaucracy and maximum efficiency.
Regardless of the size and complexity of your company, we work with you to ensure legislative compliance and workplaces safety without a negative impact on organisational efficiency. In this way our clients have found that implementing a successful Health and Safety Management System with New Level Safety’s help actually improves their bottom line profits and workplace moral.
Our range of services include:
New Level Safety has considerable experience in the development and implementation of health and safety management systems including framework objectives around which good performance can be established and maintained with support in the development of a safety culture.
We work with you to develop a non-bureaucratic system that is based on your needs, that your staff buy into and evolves and grows with your business. Any other approach will generate a document that just gathers dust, stagnates and becomes an unnecessary, unworkable burden.
Our senior practitioners have experience of working at Board level, integrating health and safety management strategy into global operations and long term business goals.
Working with established training providers, New Level Safety can deliver the training you need. Courses can be structured in a number of formats to suit your employees’ need for online training that matches their individual learning styles.
Are there any shortfalls in your Health and Safety Management or legal compliance?
New Level Safety assesses your operation, systems and policies to ensure compliance with relevant legislation. This will demonstrate due diligence in terms of control and compliance and ensures the correct methodology is being applied yet not over engineered or unduly exceeding statutory compliance.
Every other aspect of your business will have procedures in place to measure performance against strategic objectives; in other words where you are in comparison to where you want to be. Managing health and safety is no different.
Whether you have commercial or industrial premises and operate single or multiple/international sites; New Level Safety have experienced and qualified auditors who can carry out an independent audit of all or part of your health and safety management system. Even if you have your own Health and Safety Team an independent view is always valuable.
Appointing an external practice for the purpose of competent and professional advice not only provides continuous access to professionally qualified practitioners, but the knowledge that each individual has a specialist field of expertise and clear understanding of current statutes and the required application. New Level Safety can provide a level of service suitable for you needs.
A commercial health and safety structure will enhance performance and provide continued improvement through setting clear objectives and a regular review and practical effectiveness (fitness for purpose) of the current Corporate Health and Safety Management System. Investigating the root causes and true costs of accidents; identifying barriers and any obstacles impeding continuous improvement will proactively enhance the process.
To enable you to achieve this we act as an independent adviser to review your health and safety procedures, performance, compliance and understanding throughout the workforce. We will provide you with a full report and recommendations for ongoing improvement and training needs.
Health & Safety legislation requires employers to carry out a “suitable and sufficient” assessment of the risks potentially faced by their employees whilst at work, plus risks to other persons not in their employment but affected by their undertaking.
Our practitioners will work as part of your team to assess your operation and associated hazards, providing the required level of control in minimising the risks without imposing unnecessary restrictions on the operation.
Display Screen Equipment (DSE) is widely used in today’s’ workplace, the risk of obvious physical injury is minimal and yet conditions like Repetitive Strain Injury are real. If the correct procedures and user assessments are undertaken these risks can not only be controlled, but will ensure less time is lost through work related illness. NLS offer an on-line process where clients can submit their self-assessments to be then reviewed by our consultants.
A fire risk assessment is fundamental to the development of a robust fire safety strategy. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that all employers “must make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to which relevant persons are exposed”.
The intention of fire risk assessment is to make premises safer by reducing the likelihood of a fire occurring in the first place and reducing the consequences for persons in the premises if one should start.
Fire Risk Assessments are carried out by experienced New Level Safety practitioners assessors and quality checked by a Director who is listed on The Institution of Fire Engineers Fire Risk Register, giving you peace of mind that your assessment and any recommendations have been verified by someone who has been third party accredited.
What Is The Fire Risk Assessment Process?
Carrying out a fire risk assessment is an organised and methodical procedure, we look at your premises, the activities carried on there and the likelihood that a fire could start and cause harm to those in and around the premises.
The aims of the fire risk assessment are:-
• To identify the fire hazards;
• To identify the people that may be at risk from the hazards;
• Evaluate the severity of the risk to those people;
• Determine whether the existing control measures are adequate, and implement additional control measures where appropriate.
You will receive a detailed report, in plain English, covering the above together with any recommendations for you to consider. New Level Safety do not install or maintain fire safety equipment, therefore our recommendations are totally independent; leaving you to choose your own contractors if necessary.
How Much Does A Fire Risk Assessment Cost?
The cost of a fire risk assessment varies depending on the type and size of the building, the complexity of the internal arrangements and processes being carried out in the building. New Level Safety prides itself on providing cost effective services to our clients and delivering good quality fire risk assessments based on PAS79, the British Standard specification and methodology for carrying out fire risk assessments.

Day to day tasks within the office can result in injuries caused by manual handling activities, slips, trips and falls etc. Again, utilising our bespoke office risk assessment these risks are identified and adequate controls recommended for you to implement thereafter, without impacting on the normal operation of your business.

By nature of the work the construction industry is potentially one of the most hazardous industries throughout the world. No magic wand or total compliance by individuals employed in the construction industry is imminent, but awareness and controls across the sector have begun to eradicate complacency and improve safety, but much more is required.
New Level Safety can provide guidance and assistance to clients, designers or principal contractors in order to comply with the CDM Regulations 2015.
COVID-19 is a public health emergency. Everyone needs to assess and manage the risks of COVID-19. Employers must consider the risks their employees face and do everything reasonably practicable to minimise them, recognising that they cannot completely eliminate the risk of COVID-19.
Employers have a duty to reduce workplace risk to the lowest reasonably practicable level by taking preventative measures; your risk assessment must address the risks of COVID-19 and detail control measures you intend to put in place.
Failure to complete a risk assessment which takes account of COVID-19, or completing a risk assessment but failing to put in place sufficient measures to manage the risk of COVID-19, could constitute a breach of health and safety law.
We now offer Covid-19 Risk assessments enabling your company to welcome back workers into a structured and safe environment. Please contact us for further details.
