Our Purpose: Making Life Safer 4 YOU

Here we are not talking about an extra pair of hands and eyes (though if you really need this for leave cover etc. please do contact us), but we are talking about the way we look at things. Having had considerable experience in the University safety fields, Vincent realised that there is sometimes a need for assistance from specialist and experienced safety professionals within the sector.

In general, using specialist staff enables you to undertake tasks beyond your normal capacity or to obtain an independent view on the safety management of your organisation. We can provide you with experience of both enforcement and operating a complex University Safety Service.

We also offer you knowledge of the current standards (both legal and managerial) needed to provide independent competent advice, especially in the event of an incident or for external auditing purposes.

Our services include: Audit, Guidance, Inspection (in particular technical inspection), Investigation (including complex situations), Training and other bespoke services.
