Is there a benefit for outsoursing Health and Safety management?
5th March 2015
Outsourcing your health and safety management processes to a competent consultant is good value for money because you only pay for what you use.
If you compare outsourcing to employing a permanent or contract manager, you’ll find the following benefits.
A consultant can start immediately, so you don’t have to wait for them to work out their notice period (usually one to three months).
A consultant will roll up their sleeves and get started without the need for the on-boarding that an employee requires to get up and running.
A consultant will offer you candid and independent advice without the politics.
You only pay for what you need, so can scale up or down depending on your business needs at the time.
You don’t have to pay recruitment consultancy fees (which could be around £7,000 to £10,000).
You don’t have to pay for the job advert (at least £1,000).
You can keep office and IT costs down if they work offsite with their own IT. IT and office costs can be around £5,000 for an employee.
You don’t have to pay national insurance or pension contributions which could save you £6,000 to £10,000 a year.
You don’t have to pay for a car or other company benefits – another saving of about £6,000 a year.
A consultant will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience for your sector.
If you engage a consultancy, you will have access to other H&S practitioners with different expertise.
