Henderson Risk Management


Henderson Risk Management was formed in 2008 and now employs several Risk Managers with a wide base of experience in Health & Safety, Environmental Management, Fire Safety and Food Safety consultancy. We are based out of the Henderson Insurance Brokers Kirmington office, with our Risk Managers being based across the north of England, from Darlington to Manchester and Sheffield, although we have a clients across the whole of the UK.


The typical HRM client is an SME with less than 50 employees, which has no in-house H&S capability, and requires our support to comply with legislative or insurer requirements, with H&S policy, risk assessments and/or training, although we have worked successfully with several larger companies and their H&S management teams.
