Let Us Keep Your Staff Safe, And Your Business Health & Safety Compliant.

Health and Safety is a complex field and one that could be keeping you awake at night, but there is no need. At Pollard Safety Services we understand that many businesses struggle to keep up with Health & Safety compliance, assessments and reports, and even to know what they are responsible for.  We are here to share our extensive knowledge with you, to help you comply where you need to so you don’t need to worry and can relax and get that good night’s sleep.

What We Do

At PSS we have proven that the best approach to understanding Health & Safety in businesses such as yours, is to become part of your team. That way, we are not only there to look after your business and staff today, but we are on hand to help ensure that you are planning Health & Safety into company growth, which not only ensures a smooth transition but also makes sure you are always operating within the Law and with the least disruption. We pride ourselves on our long-term relationships with our clients and the way we help them to be efficient, safe and profitable.


Audits are an independent, methodical and documented assessment of a business’ health and safety system, in which it is measured against regulated criteria to make sure health and safety standards are being upheld.


We are not looking to create huge amounts of paperwork, but rather identify sensible measures to control the risks in your workplace. We can help you assess areas of potential hazards and work with you to make them safe and compliant.


Training is key to staying safe in the workplace, types of training we offer are:

  • Fire Safety Awareness
