A well presented course by Rick. I did feel the health and safety culture was delivered well where other training has become a legal responsibility only!

May 2019 (Directors role for health and safety)


I thought the course was informative and confirmed many of my thoughts, questions I had.  Rick made the day fun.  Not the dull expectations I thought it would be!


Course was very informative, Rick was a very goof tutor and made it very light hearted for something that has a very important meaning in the workplace.

Thank you again for yesterday’s training, I say thank you even though I paid for the privilege to be there but want to thank you for delivering it in such a way that genuinely captured me for the first minute! Hard hitting, engaging, honest and really made everyone in the room remove all their own personal opinions on H&S process and make sure everyone fully understands its primary cause…..to protect the HUMAN. I really enjoyed yesterday and with a young business has really made me want to present my business in a particular way to my staff and subcontractors to make sure everyone understands and has the safe focus to H&S and how to keep each other safe the best we can.
