“We are a family business, established in the 1920’s. We manufacture and sell English Oak furniture at our workshop and showroom in Kilburn, North Yorkshire. We have employed SMSE since 1999 to assist with the on-going Health and Safety issues connected with our business. They have been of tremendous help over the years overseeing all Health and Safety in our workshop, showroom, visitor centre and café. We have had assistance from the late Tony Marsden and more recently Philip Marsden.  Their detailed knowledge and “feet on the ground” approach to risk assessments, noise assessments, dust control and manual handling has been invaluable.  They have also assisted on larger more complex issues working off-site on contracts, such as the prestigious Rothschild Bank in London. We look forward to working together for many years to come!”

“Andy has provided us with excellent service over the last three years.  We have attended courses he runs, he has run courses for our staff in our very small premises, his annual audits are excellent.  What has been really useful is that he is available to give quick advice by email and phone whenever we have needed something urgently, for example, an unexpected request in a tender document with a deadline, a query about what documentation should be on site when we are installing a library interior.  Andy’s expertise is deep and continually updating and he has a good way of getting this across to a wide range of different staff in our company.  He is also realistic and has taken us on stages over a three year period from basic Health and Safety documentation to CHAS registration later this year.  I would recommend Andy unreservedly.  He gives a high level of service, is very efficient and is always friendly and helpful in manner.  He listens well and can adapt his advice to the specific circumstances of a client with tact and accuracy.”

We asked Andy to provide us with specific Risk Assessment training for our engineer’s to ensure they have the necessary tools to asses risk and the confidence to rate everything accordingly.
Andy is an excellent trainer with a detailed knowledge of health and safety, he engages the staff and breaks down each area of the training so it is easier to understand and makes it an enjoyable experience.  Understanding is checked at regular intervals to ensure that it is all going in, there is no silly question.
To quote my engineer who said “ To be honest I thought the training would be boring but to be honest it was really interesting and I really enjoyed learning about Health & Safety and how to carry out risk assessment’s”.
