Client feedback

“WSS have been with us since the beginning, and the services they provide to us have grown alongside our growing business. From writing us a bespoke health and safety management system, to risk assessments and regular support visits, we feel all our health and safety needs are well managed for us. I have been very happy with our named Advisor since we met, and feel we can always approach them for advice.”

Sam Bartlett, Jump Street

“I would just like to thank you for the fantastic service Workplace Safety Solutions provided my company recently when you carried out our PAT Testing. I was most impressed with the way your engineers put themselves out not to interfere with our business, working neatly and efficiently in our office. I would be happy to recommend your services to any business, it was nice to deal with an honest professional company”

David Noble – Noble Recruiting

“During the past three years our company has been working closely with Workplace Safety Solutions on numerous different projects. The company offers high quality Health, Safety and training services. We can say that we have always been satisfied by their work.

One of the projects that we are currently working together on for a large corporate finance company demands a high level of Health and Safety co-ordination and subsequent reporting which we can rely on WSS to support us on throughout the duration of the project and in our opinion, it has been the result of our close working relationship and the experience that WSS bring to the table which has resulted in such impressive results.

I strongly recommend the services of Workplace Safety Solutions and I am looking forward to our future working partnership with WSS.”

Area of expertise:

Operational safety during high risk activities such as confined space working is my area of interest in health and safety. It involves so much in ensuring a safe access and egress and not just focusing on the job at hand. Such high risk activities involves thinking outside the box to break down every task and what could potentially go wrong. It can be fun but daunting. The most critical items for me are always the people and the processes to achieve the best product ‘everyone home safely at the end of the working day!’.

An interesting fact about me:

I DJ as a hobby, love playing and watching football. On a good day I will surely whip up something in the kitchen once I have a good method statement in hand!
