Nice little post from +KVF Consultants Ltd. 
Agricultural Engineering Company - Case Study

One of my first customers when I set-up KVF Consultants 3 years ago was an agricultural engineers based in the south of England with 4 depots that sell, service and repair everything from ride-on mowers to combine harvesters.
When I first approached Chris, the Service Manager at the company’s Head Office depot, it was late spring and he really was up against it! I sensed, in my naivety, that perhaps this was a bad time and promised to call him back.
We eventually met and he told me the company had engaged a large UK based national health and safety provider to assist them with health and safety.
The story he told me regarding the company’s service was, to be honest, quite shocking; They had visited each depot and, in the beginning, seemed to be quite proactive, they had left large, colourful folders, carried out an initial audit and fire risk assessment.
Unfortunately though the momentum ceased and soon it had been over a year since the last visit, risk assessments had been left in the folders (which hadn’t been touched) and Chris, with the best intentions in the world, didn’t have the time to write the risk assessments and wouldn’t feel confident writing these complicated documents, after all, that was their job, right?
I have heard this story many times since visiting Chris at other company’s we now look after. I asked Chris at recent quarterly visit his thoughts on moving over to a company that specialise in workshop based health and safety. Here’s what he had to say;
‘It was a gamble, these big companies come in and tell you what they are going to do and they have sales people, promising this and that, when we didn’t see our safety advisor for over a year we carried on paying but got no support. When you came along we thought the same thing may happen but it changed straight away, you visited us every month for the first quarter, you sat with us and wrote our risk assessments, we use your online system which allows us track the health and safety at our 4 depots, you visit us at least 4 times per year and carry out audits and site inspections and your reports aren’t filled with jargon. If we have a problem we know we can email you and you will have a solution within the day.’
Because we listen to our customers and specialise in the motor trade and workshop based businesses, we know most of the processes they carry out, if we don’t know, we ask and learn and this helps us to grow and in a trade that is always moving forward with ever-changing technology, we have to ask these questions to make sure our risk assessments are suitable and sufficient for each company we work with. 
Also, much of the work carried out by agricultural engineers’ is off site, on customers land, in farms and fields, we have safe systems of work that cater for this and ensure lone workers are safe.
Chris is looking forward to a busy spring and summer as his customers prepare for working on the their land again, I look forward to assisting him and his team.

Thank you for your time.
