Safety consulting is the process of providing advice and guidance to organizations to help them meet workplace safety obligations and reduce risks. A safety consultant will audit safety protocols and practices in the workplace, provide consulting services on implementation strategies and regularly review safety processes to ensure they remain up-to-date.
When hiring a freelance safety consultant, you could get them to review your business's existing health and safety protocols, conduct reviews of hazard identification and mitigation measures, advise on legal compliance, develop health and safety documentation, review any existing industry standards, or recommend risk control strategies.
When interviewing for a freelance safety consultant, be sure to ask about their work experience, current certifications and qualifications, as well as samples of their successful past case studies or projects. You should expect to pay an hourly rate in the range of $30 - $90 depending on experience, but most likely within the range of $45-$60 for a professional freelance safety consultant.
Hiring a qualified and experienced freelance safety consultant can save costs on training and improve efficiency compared with hiring someone in-house.
