”Salopian Health & Safety were delivering IOSH Managing Safely at Hitchen Foods when I joined the company in 2014. It quickly became clear to me after spending some time with Sarah and getting feedback from the candidates that the course was delivered in an engaging and informative way. The incorporation of company specific materials combined with Sarah’s experienced driven examples and her delivery style mean that all of our candidates benefit massively from attending the course and know how to apply their learnings during their day to day roles. Having people throughout the business who can do this has helped with the improvements we have seen in the H&S culture onsite. I would highly recommend Salopian Health & Safety to anyone looking to implement a high quality training programme”.

”Being new to a school environment, I found that Sarah’s service has been invaluable. The regular visits and the annual audit has assisted with The Academy’s H & S plan to eliminate all H & S issues. Sarah is on the ball and assists us in dealing with all H & S issues as they arise. I did not realise how important this part of my role would be, but with Sarah’s help and support, I have been able to gain a great deal of knowledge.
Recently, Sarah delivered a training session to myself and the site team, we found the delivery to be well presented, and easy to understand.
Thank you for the excellent service that you have provided”.

Having worked with Sarah now for the past two years I recognise that it is a service I could not and would not want to be without. I now have the confidence that the school’s health and safety procedures not only fulfil statutory requirements but also in many areas demonstrate best practice. This would not have been possible without the monthly visits from Sarah. Through her expert knowledge and up to date advice we are able to keep on top of all the audits, termly check lists, policy reviews, risk assessment reviews and get updated on legislative changes. This work in school also enables the governor’s health and safety committee to work with purpose and always with current information. Health and Safety is a vital area in the daily running of the school and it is not always easy to find the time that it needs, Sarah’s visits ensure that it has a high priority at all times and is always moving forward. Sarah has not only ensured that our risks assessments are written correctly and reflect the personal circumstances of our school but also supported on the bigger projects in school and made sure that we have all the correct information when contractors have been in school completing works. Overall Sarah’s work gives peace of mind which is priceless

Salopian Health & Safety has delivered IOSH Managing Safely to 35 of our Managers over the past 6 months. The course is delivered in a professional but fun and interactive manner that keeps delegates interested and enables them to understand the course content, hence why all of our employee’s feedback has been extremely positive. The courses have been tailored specifically to our Company, by incorporating Company documentation into the course and throughout the course the trainer provides examples of what she has experienced whilst managing health and safety in industry for many years. Delegates have thrived from this practical approach or examples backing up the theory and have achieved excellent results, therefore Salopian Health & Safety has been nominated as our preferred safety training provider. I would highly recommend Salopian Health & Safety to others without a doubt for training or consultancy.

Having previously attended the IOSH course back in 2000, my expectation’s were to be sat, listening to endless amounts of H&S Speak for 4 days and being honest – bored! – What a great surprise I had! – Sarah delivered the course using an interactive , challenging and enthusiastic style, that kept the whole group interested throughout the course.
Having previously attended many different courses over the years, on many subjects – I would hazard to say this was the ‘ best delivered training ‘ I have experienced in my career! Well Done and I wish every success for the future!

The CIEH – Health & Safety in the Workplace course was very enjoyable, one of the best!
Mr S Taylor - Director - Taybar Ltd
As we have now been using your services for almost 12 months, I felt now was a good time to let you know what we feel regarding the service we had received.
In a nutshell you have been there when we needed you. If it was of an urgent nature, you have made time for us. It is a good feeling not only to know that we are up to date with our Health and Safety policies and procedures but also to understand fully what our obligations are.
The recent work you did in relation to our “Safe Contractor” application was first class and so pleasing when the accreditation came through. Once again thank you for a first class service.
Mr D Rolandson - Managing Director - Hyserv Pipe
As a small company, Salopian Health & Safety Consultancy has really helped me address Health & Safety issues, taking the stress out of it by providing sound advice and support without the jargon.
Services they have provided to me include rewriting my Health & Safety policy, writing a Health and Safety management system specific for my Company, assisting with developing risk assessments and helping me to gain accreditation to The Safe Contractor Passport Scheme. I would be happy to recommend them to anyone looking for guidance in this area.
Mr A Raeside - Head of School - Shropshire Council
Sarah Mellor has had a significant impact on Sundorne School & Sports College. As a school that converted to an academy recently we have had a number of Health and Safety priorities to address. Sarah has completed work that would have taken me weeks and to an exceptionally high quality in a matter of days. I fully recommend Salopian Safety for the detailed, thorough analysis of needs and more importantly the effort to then make the desired changes happen. Exceptional!
