About Rob Slater

Our Director and senior consultant Rob Slater has worked as a health and safety advisor since the early 2000’s. Before that, he spent many years in the building industry, ‘on the tools’, then in site management. It was back in the 1980’s & 90’s and his negative experiences of meeting far too many ‘elf and safety “jobsworths” that formed his “work friendly” approach. He now combines his health and safety knowledge with considerable experience of the real world, enabling him to create practical/workable solutions that allow the job to be done, while keeping the workers (and anyone else around) safe.

Rob’s personal mission/primary goal is to make sure that his clients’ staff go home safely every day.

Mission Statement

Clearwater Safety Group firmly believe that the management and control of risks belong at the very core of all business activities. Our aim is to change the perception of Health & Safety (placing the emphasis on helping rather than hindrance), in order to protect business and prevent harm.

Compliance with health and safety law is a requirement, how we get there is a science – the Science of Compliance

Building Site Inductions

Every site worker must be given a suitable site induction. The induction should be site specific and highlight any particular risks and control measures that those working on the project need to know about.

This site induction course has been written to take account of the difficulties caused by COVID 19 in having site personnel gathered together in a room to be inducted onto a site.

As a business with three offices and 50 people, the impact of Covid-19 has had a huge impact on the way we work. We closed our offices shortly before lockdown was announced and our people worked remotely for over 4 months before we made initial steps to re-open our offices, and part of that process was carrying out a Covid risk assessment.

The safety of our people is a primary concern and therefore we decided to use an external consultant in order to lean on their experience in what is a very new and fast moving area, and looked no further than Rob at Clearwater Safety. When you get health and safety involved you always worry about the amount of red tape that there will be. However, having heard Rob’s weekly presentations I had high hopes, and I wasn’t disappointed! Realising that every building has its own peculiarities he carried out a risk assessment on each office and provided a report and suggested floor plan accordingly, and made suggestions with regards to how to deal with communal areas such as kitchens and toilets.

Rob was very knowledgeable, professional and pragmatic, and managed to guide us through the process of re-opening our offices in very different circumstances to when we closed them. We made a conscious decision to go above and beyond what was legally required to ensure that as well as being as safe as possible, our staff felt as safe as possible, but thanks to Rob that was a choice for us to make!

I would have no hesitation in recommending Rob Slater of Clearwater Safety to anyone that needs health & safety advice – he certainly puts clear water between himself and his competitors!

GMP Accountants

As insurance brokers we often have to discuss health and safety with our clients. We are not professional Health and Safety or Risk Management advisors, so we have to signpost clients to the relevant professional. Over the years we have actively referred many clients to Clearwater. We find they offer a measured approach, not bombarding clients with reams of regulation, but guiding clients to achieve their required goals. Their director, Rob Slater, is a very down to earth person who is able to communicate clearly with clients helping them understand why it is something needs to be completed.

We have no hesitation in pointing our clients who need sensible, positive and practical health and safety advice to Clearwater Health and Safety.
