"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"

Below is some of the areas that we addressed: Review, amend and map our assessment criteria to the National occupational standards Write our scheme directives Review our electronic health and safety questions / answers Create a frequently asked questions document This has revolutionised our mobile plant assessment process that has increased the standards of our operators, increased productivity, reduced costs and minimised duplication.
