What our clients think

jardine

Jardine Motors Group UK

Working with Vita Safety is just like having a team of people in our business that are responsible for health and safety. They keep us regularly updated on changes to regulations and help us develop appropriate processes to maintain our compliance and protect our workforce. They provide that real conscience, keeping us fully up to date through an annual audit for all our sites and a 6-weekly continuous improvement call.

Our entire workforce is engaged with health and safety. We don’t have many major issues because people are aware of how important health and safety is to us, but if there is ever an issue, Vita Safety really do work in partnership with the site to address it, rectify it and avoid it happening in the future.

They also look after everything from a health and safety training point of view. This includes IOSH leadership training and coaching to ensure health and safety is communicated and engaged with across the business. They look after all our Health and Safety Officer training, as well as training on specialist areas such hand arm vibration, for our workshops. All their training is very flexible, practical and delivered in away to truly engage the audience.

allied-bakeries

Allied Milling and Baking

In Allied Milling and Baking we are proud of our ‘Safety First’ programme. This has delivered a significant improvement in health and safety performance; culture change as well as accident reduction and reliant on ‘ownership’ in the line and in operating teams.

We worked with Ian Hutchings from Vita Safety to produce a top line assessment of performance and culture across milling and baking operations. The findings were presented to the Board and key leadership group at our annual H & S conference. This included an interactive ‘planning workshop’, facilitated by Ian, which helped us refine our strategic plan and develop our tactical plan for the following year. The whole package, from research visits to delivery of the report and conference presentation, was well received.

We have an integrated approach to health and safety in operations and an experienced in house health and safety team helping with delivery of the plan.We do not want or need external consultants to provide expensive ‘off the shelf’ corporate solutions. What we do need, on occasions, is someone to take a ‘snapshot’ of what we are doing and provide insight to help take us to the next level of performance.

Vita Safety had the credentials and insight, borne of experience, to help us do just that; they worked to our requirements for this project, were direct, flexible and pragmatic in their approach and made an influential contribution to our planning process, for which we were grateful.

Cowny City Council

We have had the pleasure of working with John Boyle for the first time on our event, Prom Xtra in North Wales. From planning stages to delivering the final event he was very professional and attentive. He was always in contact to see how we were getting on and provided templates for us to work from to ensure our health and safety documentation included all the relevant information. He was also present at the event to inspect all health and safety paperwork provided by contractors and he advised on all incidents to ensure the right decision was taken or measure put in place.

We would whole heatedly recommend Vita Safety for event health and safety to anyone and hope to work with John again in the future.

As a small but growing organisation, the advice and support from Vita Safety has been invaluable to us. Working with one consultant means that they understand our business and although we are a low risk organisation, the service is flexible and tailored to meet our individual needs.

JFA Contracts

We first got in contact with Vita Safety when we decided to apply to become an Altius assured vendor, which is a requirement for our company to supply some of our clients. John Boyle (Senior Consultant) provided sensible, clear advice on our existing Health & Safety procedures and documentation. He made the whole process much smoother.

John understands the needs of a small company and our need to maintain high standards of Health & Safety without the cost of unnecessary bureaucracy.

His guidance is effective, the templates and checklists he has suggested have been easy to adopt and use in practice, and have not involved excessive amounts of time or paperwork. He has a wealth of knowledge on H&S…. we haven’t yet asked a question he’s not been able to answer! Moreover he is extremely approachable, and has always delivered advice in time to meet deadlines. Highly recommended!

vision-media

North West Vision and Media

I have been working with Vita Safety for many years as the Programme Leader on an industry-led media degree course, entitled The Digital Pass for Creative England and Bolton University. John wrote and designed the health and safety element of the course, which included an exam, and held innovative and engaging workshops with the students.

The exam pass rate was consistently high, due to their ability to impart complicated technical information in an easy to understand manner and to hold the attention of very lively groups of 1st year students! He is an excellent trainer, conscientious and knowledgeable.

We use Vita Safety as competent advisors and safety consultants, we have found their services to be consistent, reliable and flexible.

We are very pleased with the response and work we receive from Vita Safety. They are very pragmatic in approach, ensuring risks are correctly managed while thoroughly considering the business operating environment and culture. They have demonstrated thorough technical depth of knowledge and can apply this knowledge in the challenging environment and sector which we operate.

I would not hesitate in recommending Vita Safety to other organisations, the standard of their work is excellent.

van-der-lande

Vanderlande

Vanderlande Industries were looking for organisations to complement our internal resources and to work with us on a behavioural change programme. Having outlined our requirements we undertook a detailed review of several companies and Vita were chosen based on their open and flexible approach and ability to engage with our team at all levels within the organisation. We had a collaborative approach to developing the training package which allowed discussion and integration of ideas and Vita encouraged our active involvement allowing us maintain ownership over the programme to be delivered. We also had another company working with us on a high profile launch event and Vita actively engaged with this company to ensure that the whole programme was joined up.

Our training was focussed on managers and supervisors and it was important to us that our team felt able to discuss issues openly and establish personal plans for improvement that recognised their individuality and current point on the behavioural safety journey. Ian and John established a good rapport with the team and positive feedback has been provided by our managers and supervisors which highlighted the thought provoking approach taken and the enthusiasm of even the most reluctant participants to actively engage with their teams to drive a positive safety culture.

Vita Safety initially worked with us in 2009/10 to complete a health and safety culture assessment of the business. This review and report assisted us in developing a strategy for the implementation of a behavioural safety programme at our factories and a sample project site. The work Vita Safety has delivered has helped us to raise the profile of health and safety as a priority and also helped to engage more managers and supervisors in taking the lead on safety.

First Wessex Housing

The review by Vita Safety really helped the management team to identify and focus on the main strategic risks to the organisation. It enabled us to develop and continue to deliver ongoing improvements. The workshops helped us to engage senior managers in health and safety and to bring clarity to their responsibilities and operational plans.

We have been appointing Vita safety for our annual Health & Safety compliance audit for the past two years and are really happy with the comprehensive service delivered.

Reports received have been detailed yet concise, and have provided a good review of how we are doing. The recommendations included have been well organised and with good advice, not only on what standard was achieved, but also on how best to achieve higher standards.

We are really pleased with the excellent work that has been provided by Vita Safety in terms of content, delivery and more importantly service and flexibility.

I would not hesitate in recommending Vita Safety to other organisations and I consider their technical knowledge to be second to none, and the standard of work and reports very high.

Vita Safety’s expertise in Safety Leadership/Employee engagement is fantastic. Their ability to get underneath the skin of an organisation’s health and safety culture is first rate. They work extremely well with clients, are very personable and generate a lot of trust – essential in getting people to open up about health and safety issues in their organisation. I thoroughly recommend Vita Safety.

English National Opera

John Boyle has an easy, laid back delivery style that immediately puts the attendees at ease. Combined with a wealth of experience and knowledge of his subject; he gets the message delivered. For safety training to be effective for my team, the trainer must have relevant and meaningful examples to back up their message. With John’s wide and diverse history ranging from the chemical industry through to TV and performance; he gets the job done – brilliantly!
