About us

Empowering clients to take control of all aspects of health, safety and the environment

Established in 2005, Hosking Associates focuses on health, safety, and the environment. Our consultants help companies and schools create a healthy and safe environment for their workforce and anyone else who could be affected by what you do.

We work with organisations as the Health, Safety and/or Environmental Manager for SME’s who do not require an employed person or for organisations of all sizes who prefer to outsource.We can be your Competent Person.  We can also work alongside internal teams to provide flexible support or to assist with projects.

We will work closely with you to guide and support with the aim of raising standards at all levels. We aim to enable everyone in your organisation to make wise choices so this become integral to what you do and how you do it. Ultimately we would like you to rely on us less over time.

We save organisations money by helping with legal compliance, by supporting them to organise processes and documentation efficiently, and by organising training. A healthy, happy and safe workforce improves productivity and reduces staff turnover.

We won’t just identify problems and leave you to it – our consultants cut through the jargon, guide, support and coach to make real change happen from within. We are not afraid to make decisions if this is required. We are honest and realistic about the journey required to achieve compliance, and the steps necessary to achieve this.

We are not the cheapest consultants, but we do not charge large company prices either. We have packages to fit all budgets, so we can help any size organisations and start ups.

We offer a fully bespoke environmental, health and safety service. The work we undertake will depend entirely on your requirements.

We usually begin each project with a detailed review of the organisation – interviewing people at various levels, to get a real feel and understanding of current standards. We will review documentation, training records and examine how the organisation actually manages risk in practice.

From here, we create a report with a detailed action plan with options for implementation over a planned period of time. We offer on-going competent person support to assist with this if required.

We are dedicated to providing a strong project management approach helping companies reach their full potential by implementing a strong safety and/or environmental management system. We work from customers’ premises, integrating into the daily operation, and becoming part of the team.

Hosking Associates benchmarks health and safety and environmental standards via the ribbon award audits.

A Safety Ribbon Award is presented to companies that achieve a certain score in their annual audit.

Equally, the Green Ribbon Award is presented to organisations that achieve a high score against environmental legal compliance and best practice.

Companies who aren’t quite there yet are given guidance on how to improve their performance. Once achieved, organisations can use the logo on promotional materials to demonstrate to their customers that legal standards have been met.

All consultants and associate consultants are Occupational Safety and Health (OSCHR) registered practitioners or working toward this. They are experienced practitioners with at least 10 years experience in a variety of roles.
