Safety Solutions Tailored to Your Sector

Founded in the Midlands in 2003, Southalls provides cost-effective, common-sense health and safety services to local manufacturing businesses. Our Solihull-based specialists work with sites across the region to reduce risk, streamline processes and build practical safety programmes that keep workers protected and productive. 

With decades of sector experience, we help manufacturers run safer sites – free from significant machinery, handling and transport hazards – and build long term relationships to continually protect local plants from closures, injury claims and reputational damage. 

Our hands-on solutions – from risk assessments to staff training – are backed up by simple-to-use safety software that helps you pinpoint your site’s key dangers, plan ahead and actively prevent workplace accidents. So you can be confident you’re operating in line with compliance law. 

We never forget that ultimately you have a business to run so H&S solutions need to be commercially balanced. Look to Southalls for business-focused H&S support that gets the job done safely, profitably and with unmistakable Midlands pride. 

Southalls flexible health and safety solutions combine local knowledge and industry-leading expertise. However we work together, you’ll partner with a dedicated manufacturing sector specialist who understands your budget and business goals.  

We provide custom consultancy that delivers ongoing support, strategic safety planning and crisis management, alongside a range of bespoke services that help you boost standards and hit every type of compliance target:  

Trusted by more than 150,000 users, Safety Cloud, our cloud-based H&S software, moves every aspect of safety management online, creating a shared hub of compliance documents and data that’s accessible by your whole team.

A central point for online staff safety training, task delegation and reporting, Safety Cloud lets you run your entire manufacturing safety programme from a single online tool – from any location, on any device.  

There’s a difference between simply managing health and safety, and creating an uncompromising safety culture. So while we expertly guide our clients through day-to-day compliance duties – from health and safety audits to risk assessments and equipment checks – we also help put employee health and safety at the heart of their business. Southalls works with companies across a spectrum of sectors, with a rewarding 98% of clients choosing to partner with us time and again. Our personalised solutions – along with our customers’ proactive commitment to compliance – have created safety success stories worth sharing.

Services Southalls Provide

DISCOVER OUR BESPOKE H&S SERVICES

Health & Safety Training

Knowledge is your number one tool in preventing workplace injuries and building a team of safety champions. Our health and safety training services provide the specialist know-how you need to make compliance a core part of your culture.

Workplace Noise Assessments

Uncontrolled noise in the workplace can leave staff with life-long hearing damage – and it’s down to business owners to keep levels in check. Are you taking the right precautions?

Asbestos Surveys

Every employer is required to assess and manage asbestos risks across their site. It’s a critical compliance issue, with more than 2,000 lives lost to mesothelioma and asbestos-related lung cancer every year. Put a plan in place today.

Legionella Risk Assessments

With deaths from Legionnaires’ disease spiking in recent years, harmful bacteria within your water systems is a very real threat. Safeguard your stakeholders with an ongoing programme of monitoring and maintenance.

Fire Risk Assessments

No business is free of workplace fire risks – and every employee has a part to play in prevention. We’ll help you shape a site-specific fire safety plan and provide the team training to head off hazards before they cause harm.

COSHH Risk Assessments

We’ll help you zero in on risk areas, refine processes and implement common sense solutions for all your COSHH health and safety requirements.

DSEAR Risk Assessments

Dangerous substances are standard for all sorts of businesses, from kitchens to chemical plants. Protect your people and the public from inherent risks with responsible working practices and support from Southalls’ DSEAR specialists.

Workplace DSE Assessments

Your team can spend hours at their workstations each day, so conditions need to be comfortable and compliant. Take a proactive approach to screen, seating and equipment standards before occupational hazards put employee health at risk.

Enhanced safe working practices have been achieved following Southalls advice on equipment purchases, machinery upgrades and staff training. The ‘paperwork’ is taken care of as Southalls review and update our risk assessments, ensuring they cover all activities from fire through to our nightshift workers.  Meanwhile, Safety Cloud keeps our safety management efficient and is regularly used by staff for managing work equipment, staff training and logging accidents.

- Yewdale Corporation Ltd. -

By adopting Safety Cloud, ACO has enhanced our management and control of health and safety compliance across the business. The most fundamental part of improving safety has been our relationship with our consultant, who goes out of his way to ensure we are confident and compliant, through regular audits, working with our staff, providing practical feedback and driving continuous improvement. Since implementing Safety Cloud, awareness of health and safety matters has spread within the business, with many more people engaged in ensuring we keep our staff and visitors safe.

- ACO Water Management -

We have an excellent relationship with our consultant, who is extremely knowledgeable, proactive and quick to respond to any question we have. Without Southalls’ expertise, hands-on support and personal approach, our health and safety processes simply wouldn't be as effective. Having implemented Safety Cloud throughout our business, we have a great deal of confidence in our safety management, as well as clear action plans that ensure we remain consistently compliant.

We have used Southalls for the past 8 years, during which we have expanded into new product lines and upscaled our operations in a second warehouse. This growth has brought additional safety considerations but the constant, ongoing support of our consultant has been invaluable - allowing us to expand operations safely.

- Yewdale Corporation Ltd. -

Southalls provided us with a tailored health and safety solution, enabling us to meet our legal obligations. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them to any other organisation.

After looking at many providers, Southalls were chosen to provide their safety cloud, matching our needs to the system and effectively implementing across the group.
