A Detailed Quote
A good health and safety consultant won’t just provide a figure for their services but will outline exactly how many visits are to be paid, the length of the contract and the inclusions of the price. Better yet, they should come and visit the site(s) before offering a quote so they can gauge the size, complexities and specifics of what needs to be provided and price appropriately.
