Prevention is better than cure in occupational health and safety

Prevention is better than cure in occupational health and safety - Kent Science Park

We run many training courses here in our bespoke classrooms – we also have dedicated breakout areas with free drinks and catering services at the science park – and find the site ideal for this purpose.

Alex Menzies, The Bradley Group

The Bradley Group began life as an occupational health and safety consultancy and has grown to include training services and bespoke risk management systems. Director Alex Menzies explained: “Compliance with health and safety legislation is mandatory, and we try to make the journey as painless as possible, building relationships with our clients and tailoring our services to their needs. Occupational health today is a very broad area, and we offer a ‘one-stop shop’ for consultancy and training. There is a push to encourage companies to be proactive about health and safety rather than reactive, with more focus on wellbeing and stress in the workplace, helping people to work better, safer and for longer.”

“A large part of our work is the prevention of accidents, which can have a massive impact on a business. The costs associated with an accident can be huge, and can even result in the closure of the business. Alongside that, there’s a recognition that productivity is linked to staff morale and that we need to be looking at things like diet and smoking cessation, as well as exercise and controlling stressors in the workplace. Companies that focus on workplace welfare generally find that their staff have less sick leave and can work well into later life with fewer issues. We also get involved in environmental management, and we can help companies to implement systems to manage compliance with quality standards.”

“From a training perspective, we offer everything from basic level courses – for example, half-day or one-day courses on fire management or training for fire wardens – and go all the way up to nationally and internationally recognised qualifications such as the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH). We run many training courses here in our bespoke classrooms – we also have dedicated breakout areas with free drinks and catering services at the science park – and find the site ideal for this purpose. It offers pleasant areas where students can relax including a garden, and the site is easily accessible with ample free parking, which can be a challenge to find in this area,” Alex concluded.
