Cite-a-Shun – The Untold Truth Behind Some National Health and Safety Companies

January 5, 2024by admin0

In the complex realm of health and safety, the qualifications and expertise of your advisor are crucial. However, recent insights have brought to light concerning practices among some national health and safety companies, reminiscent of firms like “Cite-a-Shun”.

Understanding Health and Safety Qualifications:

  • IOSH Managing Safely: While valuable, this is designed for managers and not specialized advisors.
  • NEBOSH: More comprehensive, aimed towards preparing independent consultants with a deeper understanding.
  • Diplomas: Pursued by industry leaders, these represent a higher echelon of knowledge and capability.

The Misconception of ‘Competent’ Advisors: The issue lies not just in the qualifications but in the misrepresentation of competency. Businesses, misled by the guise of large, reputable firms, often end up with advisors whose expertise doesn’t extend beyond basic levels.

The Risk of Template-Based Solutions: These companies often provide generic, templated documents, potentially leaving businesses inadequately protected and falsely reassured.

Case Study: A Cautionary Tale from Teesside A business in Teesside, initially partnering with a national firm, realised too late that their ‘competent’ advisor provided little more than surface-level solutions, inadequately addressing their unique health and safety needs.

FAQs on Genuine Health and Safety Expertise

  1. How can I ensure my health and safety advisor is genuinely competent?
    • Verify their qualifications and ask for bespoke solutions rather than generic templates.
  2. What are the implications of relying on standard health and safety templates?
    • These often fail to address specific risks unique to each business, leading to potential safety and compliance gaps.

Conclusion: This revelation about firms like “Cite-a-Shun” serves as a wake-up call. It’s not just about having a health and safety advisor – it’s about having the right one.
