Occupational Safety & Health Consultants Register (OSHCR)
OSHCR was established in response to the Government's Common Sense, Common Safety report, which recommended that all Health and Safety consultants should be accredited to a professional health and safety body and a web-based directory be established.
Businesses can have confidence in choosing a safety consultant from the register, as they are bound by a code of conduct and are committed to providing sensible and proportionate advice.
