Occupational Safety and Health Consultants Register – (OSHCR)

Chris is a registered Occupational Safety and Health Consultant.

OSHCR was established in response to the Government’s Common Sense, Common Safety report, which recommended that all Health and Safety consultants should be accredited to a professional body and a web-based directory be established. The register aims to assist businesses to find advice on general health and safety management.

A network of professional bodies and stakeholders have worked together in partnership to develop this register, which has established a benchmark standard for safety consultants and help to raise the quality of advice being given to businesses.

This minimum standard has been set at a degree level qualification, at least two years experience and active engagement in a continuing professional development scheme.

Businesses can have confidence in choosing a health & safety consultant from the register, as they are bound by their professional body’s code of conduct and are committed to providing sensible and proportionate health and safety advice.
