Safety First - By Recommendation

Central Hall Westminster

Central Hall Westminster, London

After a prolonged search for someone to assist us with the co-ordination of our Health, Safety and Hygiene policies and compliance, we were recommended by “Business Link for London” to consider Safety First who were already servicing their needs.

In just six months they have made a huge difference.

David and his colleagues have worked extremely hard and diligently and they quickly gained the respect of the entire workforce through their light-hearted and understanding, yet persuasive approach to making things happen.

Having previously had experience of two different mainstream training organisations, without hesitation I would say that the Safety First course was more thorough and yet more enjoyable than either of my previous experiences.

I feel extremely fortunate in having been recommended to Safety First who have offered both a practical and cost-effective solution to our Health and Safety requirements, and I in turn have no hesitation in recommending their services to others.

Michael Sharp - Director and General Manager, Central Hall Westminster

Premier Travel Inn

Premier Travel Inn

We have been using Safety First as the training provider for Travel Inn since 1998. We have always been highly satisfied, both from an employee and manager perspective with the consistent level of quality and value they provide. They have provided a cost-effective training solution for such a large organisation that covers England and Scotland.

It is a great benefit to have the confidence in a training organisation who have the flexibility and adaptability to meet the needs of a variety of sites and individuals.

I would certainly recommend Safety First as a highly credible training provider. Safety First came to Travel Inn by recommendation, and I would like to enhance this recommendation to any organisation, no matter how large or small.

Emma Smith - Manager, Premier Travel Inn

At all times Safety First are very accommodating and aware of the business needs and pressures whilst training.

The candidates leave the sessions motivated, enthusiastic, knowledgable and able to use the information gained back in the business.

I would thoroughly recommend using Safety First as a trainer for any course.

Vicky Rogers - Training Projects Manager, Premier Travel Inn

Business Link

Business Link

The qualities shown by Safety First and its trainers are of the highest standard, not only delivering current legislation but ensuring the training is enjoyable.

Business Link has recommended Safety First to a number of businesses both large and small, all of which have found the delivery of training very interesting and cost-effective. I would not hesitate to recommend Safety First for training requirements.

Union Jack Club London

Union Jack Club

The Union Jack Club and its staff have benefited enormously from the training delivered by Mr Barrett. It is clear from his training style and methods that there have been dramatic improvements throughout all departments within the Union Jack Club. In addition, this has also led to favourable comments from our guests, which are linked to having trained personnel.

What has been a key issue is to diminish the fear and nervousness that staff have when attending courses. As a result of Mr Barrett's sense of humour and understanding management style, our staff really enjoy attending these courses and training sessions.
