Ian Travers Ltd is the trading company by which Ian Travers and Michelle Travers provide Process Safety and Health and Safety consultancy services. Since 2015 Ian Travers Limited has been supporting industry and businesses improve their risk management systems and optimise their safety performance. Since the Covid-19 lockdown we have been providing support to businesses on how to carry out risk assessments and the measures they should put in place to get back to work safely.
COVsafe is a project which we set up with the specific purpose of helping employers and business owners to carry our a COVID 19 risk assessment. Returning to work after the lockdown and running a business under the new conditions is going to present challenges to everyone. Carrying out a thorough risk assessment is only part of the process of ensuring that the people who work in an organisation are kept safe from the coronavirus. But it is an important first step.
The software we have created is designed to ensure that you leave nothing out of your risk assessment while allowing you to get the job done efficiently.
