HSE Infoline Still Alive? Santia Keep it Going

Post by Jack Kane » Thu Oct 06, 2011 5:30 pm

I've just received this press release from Santia Consulting Ltd, I personally think this is great. I also wasn't aware that Santia ran the HSE's Infoline for 14 years!

Santia Consulting Ltd wrote:Santia Consulting Limited, the leading health and safety risk management firm has launched a free telephone information service, Santia Infoline, for businesses seeking health and safety information.
The company has managed the Infoline service on behalf of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) for the last 14 years. HSE closed the telephone line in September but Santia has made the decision to continue to provide the helpline service which is available to businesses of all sizes.

Jane Hext, Chief Executive of Santia Consulting Limited comments:
“As the leading health and safety consultancy we appreciate that health and safety legislation can be a proverbial minefield for companies to navigate their way through. We recognise the need for companies to have access to information in a clear and concise format. It is our commitment to the health and safety industry and our desire to support the government’s agenda that health and safety should have a commonsense, common purpose approach. This has led us to provide the information line to businesses for free”

The service has been used by over 20,000 people every month and at the time of the announcement health and safety forums expressed their concern over the closure. While HSE retains a large online database of health and safety information, Santia is confident that the phone service will remain popular with businesses that require information in a timely fashion.

Santia Infoline will offer exactly the same expertise as the previous service and will be manned by highly trained health and safety operators, offering businesses a single point of contact to gain health and safety information.

The service will be available Monday to Friday between 8am-6pm. Santia will offer the service on a three month trial basis on order to gauge the demand and need for this type of service.
To access support from Santia Infoline simply call 02920 029571 or visit our website for more details http://www.santia.co.uk/infoline" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Well done Santia clapclap

I totally agree with your sentiments Jack but did you know that HealthyWorkingLIves are also providing a free Infoline(in Scotland only at the moment) giving the same advice as the HSE.
This might help those north of the great divide.
If you do what you always done, you will get what you always got.

Why is it that every other country in the UK gets free H&S Support but in England again we only get a website. :shock:
