Havio is a multi- disciplined Health and Safety Consultancy located in London and operating nationally. We have been operating successfully for 10 years as a wholly owned and private business. Prior to this the business was part of a larger insurance brokerage group. Havio’s company ethos centres on creating long term partnerships with our clients based on trust and collaborative working.
We have a clear mission – to ensure people at work, or those affected by work, return home to their loved ones safely each and every day. Added to this, we are passionate about changing the negative perceptions of the Health and Safety Industry
We get asked this a lot as the name is quite unusual – we were formerly known as RHSS Ltd, however in 2018 we underwent a full company rebrand to design something that was more in keeping with our approach and relationships we hold with our clients. As part of the rebrand we decided upon a name change and the meaning of this is given below:
Meaning "High" in old Norse. The quality of our service. The standards that we set ourselves and uphold.
Input The quality of the advice and expertise that we provide, based on the strength of our client relationships and partnerships.
Output The impact this has on our clients business and organisational culture and attitudes towards health and safety.
We give the right advice. We never compromise on our integrity. We don’t allow our close relationships with clients to impact upon that.
We adapt and flex our advice and our approach to fit with our individual clients' needs, culture, environment and expectations. We recognise that Health and Safety looks different to different people.
We are there for our clients when they need us. We are prompt. We are reliable. We are approachable, proactive and ‘open’ at all times.
We are down to earth. We are friendly. We empathise with our clients and their challenges. We become an extension of our clients’ teams. We earn trust and respect.
Our knowledge and expertise are our most important assets. We are committed to constant growth and learning. The more we educate ourselves, the better we can educate our clients.
We work proactively with our clients in true partnership. We don’t police. We partner, we guide, we coach.
