Online Risk Assessment tool

You are required to produce risk assessments for your business; our online system walks you through the process and creates your bespoke Food, Health & Safety and Fire Risk Assessments.

They’re stored within your Business Management Portal where you can go in and edit them at any time. 




Primary Authority Partnership

We're in a Primary Authority Partnership with Greenwich Borough Council. This means, in short, that all of our documentation, advice and guidance is assured by a Government body and our FSMS, Risk Assessments, Training and all other documentation has been signed off as Assured Advice and Guidance.

To put it plainly, the guidance you receive from us is in-line with current laws and regulations.
