Health and Safety Consultants in the IT & Software Industry
At Safety Forward we provide a range of services for businesses looking for health and safety consultants in the IT industry. We can tailor our consultancy and training courses to your exact requirements.
Following the Coronavirus pandemic many businesses closed their offices or adopted hybrid working policies, particularly those that worked in the IT industry where staff do not need to be based in a central office to carry out their work.
We helped and continue to assist IT companies with their legal health and safety obligations towards homeworking. We provide full consultation, training and documentation to ensure compliance on all levels including DSE assessments, the working environment, potential risks, stress and mental health.
Identifying and dealing with potential stress and mental health issues has become even more prevalent since working from home (WFH) became the norm. Whilst many staff enjoy the flexibility that WFH offers, in reality they are probably working longer hours and harder than when in the office and also missing out on interaction or being able to easily ask advice informally from colleagues or management. People who are deprived of social contact through work can feel isolated or disconnected, bringing on pressure and stress or aggravating pre-existing mental health problems. We can help your business mitigate the risk and provide you with the support you need.
