What our customers say
James Berry, Managing Director, Myers Group
'For the new senior management team it was evident outside help was required and Safety Coaching were chosen. Safety Coaching are not like your stereotypical Health and Safety consultants and are very understanding of the day to day issues businesses face, especially in these challenging economic times' 'As well as giving expert guidance on developing systems and practices Safety Coaching provided first class leadership training to help the management team change people’s mind set and achieve better employee buy in. Although the focus was generally on Occupational Health and Safety the benefits for the individuals and business were much broader'. 'The Myers Group would recommend Safety Coaching to any business that requires help in improving safety systems and policies as well as developing the leadership skills of their employees'.
Simon Taylor, Director of Surface Mining, UK Coal
"If you really want support in making a step-change improvement in your business’s safety performance, go to Safety Coaching. If, however, you are either doing it half-heartedly or only because somebody told you to do it or you just want to do ‘some safety paperwork’ you’d best go somewhere else. Of course Safety Coaching can provide advice on all the best-practice systems and processes but the real value will come from Safety Coaching challenging the commitment of you and your team to safety. If you can rise to the challenge, Safety Coaching will help you get to where you want to go"
