The accidents at work are a sad reality that almost daily accompanies the chronicles of the world of work, despite the strict regulations on the matter. Companies are in fact required to comply with precise provisions and to implement all measures to ensure safety in every workplace. Often the orientation between regulations and obligations becomes complex and companies need to turn to a consultancy service. Find out what the areas of intervention are and why opening a franchise in the field of safety at work could be a good idea.
Safety at work: what services can be offered?
When we talk about services on safety at work we mean a multiplicity of areas of intervention that differ according to the sector of activity of the company concerned. The agencies involved in this sector are therefore dealing with activities that are very different from one another, ranging from fire safety to anti-fall safety , to occupational health and food safety.
The services offered therefore range from advice for adaptation to labor standards, specific interventions related to problems or compliance with relevant regulations. Another area of intervention is also that concerning the training of personnel, with courses of all levels and updating in the event of changes to the regulations.
As you could understand from what I have told you up to here, the areas of intervention are really very varied, as well as different professionals can be involved in the security sector. So let’s see what are the requisites for opening a work safety activity in franchising .
Who can open an activity in the field of safety at work: the requirements and professional profiles
In general there are no specific requirements to open an activity in the field of occupational safety. However, we are talking about a very delicate sector both for the subject dealt with and for the presence of numerous regulations on the matter. It follows that this activity should preferably be carried out by those with specific expertise.
However, many franchisees organize specific training courses for the sectors of activity, which allow anyone to pursue a career in occupational safety services. In case you need specific figures (such as an occupational doctor), it is always possible to make use of external collaborations or to hire specific staff.
Some franchisors require skills already acquired or are aimed exclusively at professionals already active in areas close to that of security. For specific requests I invite you to refer to the description of each franchisor, which you will find in the following paragraphs. Where not specified, it is always possible to request all information regarding the franchisor of your interest.
The performance of the real activity does not require particular requirements, if not those provided for all the spaces open to the public. The space where you intend to start up your business must therefore be in compliance with the regulations set by the local health authority for commercial activities open to the public.
