Expansion and growth for Rhino Safety

/ / Member News

Multi award-winning Health and Safety Consultancy Rhino Safety are celebrating their move to larger offices at the Edwin Foden Centre in Sandbach.
Since winning their first award for Start Up Business of the Year in 2015, the company has grown quickly, with a directly employed team of 7, including 4 expert Health & Safety consultants.
The expansion into new premises has coincided with their largest ever month’s turnover, and follows their most recent award of Business of the Year (under 25 employees) with the South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce.
Rhino Safety operates nationwide and works with a number of large, multi-site clients as well as SMEs and 3rd-sector organisations in industries from office and retail through to construction, manufacturing and engineering. They are able to take care of all aspects of businesses’ health and safety obligations, including training, documentation, ongoing support, risk assessments and fire risk assessments.
Director Simon Walter says “As well as working with some well-known corporations, at Rhino Safety we also enjoy working with small firms who simply can’t justify having their own dedicated Health and Safety team.
What we tend to do with smaller clients is act as their own “mini” Health and Safety department. That’s because with all the new regulations and constant changes to existing ones coming from the government, small companies simply can’t afford to ignore them – a small mistake could end up costing them a huge amount of money or even bankrupt the company. It just makes sense for them to outsource all that to us so they can relax and get on with what they do best while we take care of all the legislative headaches for them”.
Working with such a wide variety of clients has benefits both to their consultants and clients. As Director Cate Walter explains, “Lots of H&S consultants specialise in one industry, but we strongly believe that our experience working with clients in a wide range of fields keeps us at the forefront of H&S developments and aware of all the possible risks, rather than becoming ‘nose-blind’ due to over-specialisation in just one field.
This also benefits our clients, because we can provide them with innovative solutions based on our experience from other sectors, and ultimately ensure they are providing safe working environments without threatening their commercial focus.”
The company have also just launched a brand new, turnkey product aimed at low-risk businesses with less than 15 employees: H&S Unlocked.
Simon explains, “These smaller companies are often overlooked by the H&S industry, and the information and materials available to them to manage their H&S are often a scaled-down version of those designed for huge companies with completely different needs.
H&S Unlocked is a one-off cost pack that contains everything these businesses need to be compliant – without overkill.”
Cate continues, “H&S Unlocked offers these businesses the opportunity to show genuine engagement with their H&S obligations that downloadable templates just don’t provide, but without the huge time or financial commitment. It’s a bespoke solution at great value for money.”
