Domino Risk Management provides offices with best practice guidelines for health and safety. As well as traditional health & safety training Ken Rock has developed an in-house, practical training session to ensure regular DSE assessments can be undertaken by competent staff.
Domino Risk Management developed a health & safety policy complete with risk assessments and monitoring systems for a primarily office based organisation albeit with some field staff working in a wide range of premises. Ken Rock later trained staff in DSE assessment techniques and now acts as competent person to advise on health & safety and carry out external safety audits.
