Churchill Retirement Living

SML were engaged by Churchill Retirement Living to undertake a Health and Safety Strategic Review in 2018. The Project consisted of a detailed audit of processes, resources and data both at a corporate and site level. SML have continued to provide support with regular construction site visits, creating policy and process and recruitment of a health and safety team.

“SML were recommended to me as General Counsel of our business by an experienced corporate defence lawyer, working in private practice, as being the ideal company for me to work with in undertaking a health and safety audit of our business.

 “This audit was seeking to look at our business from a ‘top down’ and ‘bottom up’ approach including taking a detailed look at our corporate culture as well as our site activities.

“I have appreciated the professional, knowledgeable, flexible and straight forward approach that SML have taken to the matter and their findings and proposed improvement plan has helped our senior managers to easily understand where the business sits in terms of health and safety compliance and to identify quickly where action can be taken to deliver improvement.”
