What is a Chartered Safety and Health Practitioner?
IOSH is the only organisation in the world that offers Chartered membership to health and safety practitioners. The status is to help practitioners to achieve the highest professional standards.
Employers know that when they work with a Chartered Safety and Health Practitioner, they're dealing with someone who's at the top of their profession. IOSH Chartered Members also have the respect of their peers - other professionals know that they've been through a rigorous process to become Chartered and have met the high standards of the world's most prestigious body for health and safety professionals, as well as continuing to update their knowledge via continuing professional development (CPD).
Why choose a Chartered Safety and Health Practitioner?
Businesses, employers and recruitment consultants are already well used to working with and hiring Chartered professionals. They recognise Chartered status as shorthand for 'best in class' and they know they'll get the highest professional standards from a Chartered safety and health professional.
It is requisite that all Chartered Members need to keep up-to-date and demonstrate continuing professional development (by maintaining a CPD record).
What do MESH Chartered Practitioners provide to clients and prospective clients?
At MESH we pride ourselves not only on our technical knowledge of Health & Safety but also our experience on how to apply that knowledge. Because we only use the best consultants we are sure that our clients will get the best advice available. This advice is always considered against the ethos of "is it sensible, realistic and proportionate to the risks your business faces?"
We provide a personal service to our clients throughout the UK (rather than providing off the shelf solutions as you may get from some consultants), and have the personal skills to make effective changes that enhance your business.
We feel strongly that although weaknesses in legislation allows companies to cut some Health & Safety corners, the welfare of employees and the general public are of paramount importance and so Health & Safety is not something that companies can take a chance on. It only takes one wrong action within a company to cost a life or serious injury. We feel that the status of Chartered Safety and Health Practitioner, through it's endorsement from IOSH, gives our potential clients plenty of reasons to consider looking at what people have to say about us and then making contact to see how we can help.
