CASE STUDY 3: Startup Business

Title: SnowSec Ltd.

  • Health and Safety Setup
  • Documentation Setup
  • Health and Safety Policy
  • Lone Working Policy
  • Cold Weather Working Protocols
  • Risk Assessments
  • Staff Training and Competency Requirements

SnowSec is a UK security company that works with clients in both the UK and Europe. One of their primary services is providing welfare, support and security for ski resorts over the winter months while working closely with tour reps of student groups holidaying for the week.

We put together a safety pack containing a health and safety policy, lone working policy and cold weather working protocols, along with supporting risk assessments to help manage the risk involved with their range of services offered.

Two of the essential health and safety areas to address were developing a lone worker policy and creating a set of protocols to manage this risk.

Do It Safely was able to help identify areas where lone working was not suitable. We also looked at ensuring that their staff and contractors were not exposed to unnecessary risks while checking that the company was compliant in its obligation under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.

A training needs analysis was also conducted for the various roles required. SnowSec was then able to provide suitable training and source contractors with the relevant skills to enable them to provide an even better service to their clients.

Calculating Occupancy during COVID-19

One of the things we have had to do on several different events, during the pandemic, is to calculate how many people we can allow in a space and still have enough space to maintain social distancing of at least 2 metres.

We believe in a personal approach and have long-standing relationships with many of our clients. Having a thorough understanding of each business allows us to provide the most accurate and beneficial health and safety advice.
