Schapel Consulting is a specialist Health and Safety and Human Resources Consultancy established to assist equine businesses in ensuring they meet their Health and Safety legal responsibilities.
Current Work safe regulations places the responsibility for safety on both employers and the self-employed. The current code of practice also seeks to protect anyone else who may be affected by work activity such as visitors and members of the general public. The responsibilities have been implemented to ensure that adequate provision is made for the health and safety in the equine workplace.
