The Retained service allows you to be compliant with Regulation 7, but also ensures that you are not paying for anything extra you don’t require. All ad hoc projects, site visits and inspections etc are charged on an as-need basis, so our scheme fits perfectly with your requirements each month. As a retained client, a discount can often be applied to ad hoc work and accredited trainings, so you get even more value for money.


From time to time, or on larger projects, we may utilise our panel of associate practitioners so that we are able to provide a timely response and address issues requiring a specific area of expertise.


All our consultants are qualified practitioners with a wide range of experience and expertise. Most are Chartered Practitioners of IOSH and other professional bodies and are therefore required to adhere to the relevant codes of practice and be fully insured.

The retained person service will also allow you to cite ‘Comply at Work Ltd’ as your competent person within your organisation on any documentation to suppliers or professional bodies, making you more desirable to do business with.
