We know the industry, inside and out
Opus is a new business built on decades of experience.
Nineteen years ago, John Southall - our founder - left his environmental health officer role to create a new kind of health and safety consultancy.
Honest, commercially-aware and completely focused on customer relationships.
Proven Safety Expertise
Hundreds of safer clients later, John and his team bring the same no-nonsense know-how to Opus.
Simplified Compliance Approach
We're compliance experts who recognise you have a business to run and people to protect. So we're here to make it simple.
We don't believe in safety for safety's sake. So you won't be locked into a long-term contract or upsold services you don't need.
You work with qualified safety managers and ex-enforcement officers to exceed your legal requirements and make compliance a core part of your culture.
We invest time to understand your company, challenges and compliance goals.
Our custom solutions are built around your needs, budget and business aims.
We’re here for you – with exceptional service and a business-minded approach.
We raise standards with streamlined processes and time-saving tech.
Less box ticking, more benefits
Health and safety shouldn't slow you down. We listen to your goals, locate your issues and create custom compliance programmes to keep you moving forward.

Choose the right approach for you
Every company has different compliance challenges. Shape your ideal safety solution from three flexible options.
Opus Safety Partnership
Full-service consultancy and business risk management to improve safety standards for the long term.
Standalone compliance services
Targeted audits, surveys, assessments and staff training to keep you in line with current health and safety laws.
Workflows, checklists, reporting and e-learning that streamline safety from start to finish.
How our consultancy partnerships work
We like to build lasting relationships. But that doesn't mean strict long-term contracts.
Partnerships begin with a business risk audit and grow with you. Along the way, you set realistic compliance goals – and get the tools, tactics and training to achieve them.
Compliance is full of inflated costs. We help you navigate mandatory requirements – and avoid unnecessary expense.
A positive way forward
We shape flexible H&S plans to keep you protected and productive - not lists of restrictive rules.
Personalised safety support
You get hands-on help with everyday compliance tasks and step-by-step programmes to reduce risk.
You need a compliance partner you can depend on. We’re honest, accessible and always thinking ahead.
