About Orbis

Established in 2016 by Managing Director Ryan Lloyd-Davies, ORBIS have grown to be a reputable consultancy, specializing in taking the load off your hands.

DSEAR Assessment

The Dangerous Substances Explosive Atmosphere Regulations 2002 sets out that companies with potential explosive atmospheres must complete an assessment to determine the level of risk and ensure adequate controls are in place.

Health & Safety Consulting

It`s common for companies to need a little extra help with Health and Safety matters. If it’s to hold the fort while someone is off work, if there is a large project that needs extra manpower, or if it’s simply that you need that specialist expert advice – we pride ourselves in a comprehensive approach for as much or as little as you need.

Noise Assessments

A noise risk assessment is carried out to ensure the health and safety of workers who are exposed to noise hazards. The assessment’s key findings are then evaluated and used to develop preventive or corrective measures to protect workers from the long-term effects of noise exposure.

Workplace Exposure

When working with dusts, fumes, and vapours, its sometimes difficult to know if we are well protected or if more neds to be done.This is because some substances are mor harmful than others and there are different compliance rules.The most effective way to know for sure is to test the working environment for the type and concentration of hazardous substances to make better informed decisions.


As an employer, or someone responsible for the control of premises (including property owners) which has a water supply, there is a legal duty to risk assess legionella hazards to ensure the appropriate management and control is in place to avoid anyone being exposed to legionella and other harmful waterborne bacteria.

Our Story

Setup in 2016 by managing director Ryan Lloyd-Davies, Orbis has grown to be one of the most popular and expert H&S Advice consultancies in the area of Health, Safety and Environmental compliance.

Ryan has embedded the determination of doing more than that of a consultant with all of Orbis clients, to make the client feel that we are an extension of your business – not advisors explaining what needs doing - but rolling up our sleeves and doing the work with you.

Its common that we complete high level audits and assessments, and then design, develop, and implement the necessary training, procedures, and risk assessments for the client.

Orbis Environmental & Safety

Each project is assigned a Project Lead in the form of an Occupational Health and Safety Consultant that will be a Chartered member of IOSH, as a minimum with over 10 years’ experience – So you can be confident your in good hands.


Outcomes in mind

Case Study

We were asked to help a client because of HSE Enforcement action. The client had limited budget and more limited time resources.

After the first site assessment, we spoke with the owner of the business and quickly understood that this business did not have the people or experience to do what the HSE expected. They needed help.

So, we did it for them. We drew up every Policy, Procedure, and risk assessment, implemented new monthly inspections and completed the first few months to get them going. We completed the DSEAR Assessment, did the Noise Assessment at the same time and even took samples of the machinery coolant and sent it to be tested for them.

That is what makes us different.


Statement from Ryan (managing Director)

After working as a Health and Safety manager for over 10 years across multiple sites and multiple industries, it was clear that there is a real gap in what safety specialists offer and deliver upon. Not that they did a bad job at all, definitely not – more so that they would create a list of problems and leave us to fix them on our own.

I remember thinking that hiring specialist consultants is expensive, but all we really got from it was a thumbs up, or a to do list. So, I wanted to change the game – and so far, it works. When I explain the approach that Orbis takes in helping the client through the problems, doing as much or as little as needed, the cost of the consultant all of a sudden becomes less important because the client physically has outcomes at the end.


1 – We assess the needs of your business and areas of compliance our need help with or have challenges with

2 – We complete a full review to provide expert advice on risks and opportunities

3 – This is where we excel – We offer the expert advice on what to do and how to do it – but most importantly, we do the work with or for you. Doing the heavy lifting and offering you the much-needed outcome, not simply a list of things to do yourself.

We do not assess and give you the report on what to do – We do the work with you and for you, as an extension of your team.

We sometimes act as independent health and safety consultants, also considered to be on a freelance health and safety consultant basis, with the support of a professional chartered company.

All of our consultants are suitably qualified and registered as members of appropriate bodies.

You will be allocated a Senior consultant with a minimum of Chartered status with IOSH (CMIOSH) to oversee and complete works.

To know more or chat to a consultant, contact us or pop an email over to us at [email protected] or call us on – 01656 470044. We will be in touch within 1 hour.
