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.
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.
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.
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.
The needs of our client are at the front of what we do at ORBIS, and we are proud of the close and committed working relationships we form. We really do feel part of your business family, helping to get things right.
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.
We are very unique in that we specialise in assessing the needs of any business but adding the most important aspect, which is the outcomes you need, delivered with competent health and safety advice.
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.
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.
We have been using Orbis for Health and safety monitoring, auditing and advice for the last 12 months. They are professional, helpful, knowledgeable and provide a first class service. Due to the nature of our business they have had to be cost effective and flexible in meeting our requirements, sometimes in a very limited and difficult timescale. We would recommend Orbis to other similar business.
Orbis Environmental have been incredibly knowledgeable and helpful to us to date.

Orbis have been extremely helpful, providing assistance and advice on a range of health, safety and environmental matters, including compiling new policies, auditing current procedures and providing training as required. Orbis have proved themselves to be highly effective, delivering what they promised and hitting agreed timescale deadlines.
We found Orbis consultants very helpful during their visit and quick to come up with solutions specific for our company. They have also been quick to response to our emails and telephone calls concerning various H&S matters. Orbis have been very affective in helping us achieve our H&S objectives, and that is continuing to date.'
