How big is your H&S service - ratio of H&S professionals to staff

We are a large organisation with a range of risks and are geographically spread across the country. We're facing major organisational change, with reducing staff numbers across the board, including in the Health Safety and Wellbeing function. One of questions we are pondering is the ratio of H&S professionals to employees. Our current thinking on the structure of the new service is a ratio of 1 to 750. Are fellow members able to to offer any data that we can benchmark against?
