As a small-ish charity, Visyon has 39 staff, and carries out a range of different activities across several bases, often with vulnerable clients. We simply don’t have the resources for an in-house specialist H&S officer, so we approached Adi at Ensure Safety & Training for advice and assistance. Adi took the time to meet with us on several occasions, getting to know our work and our premises, and understanding our organisation and H&S requirements.
Adi has provided invaluable assistance and guidance in a clear, understandable manner which is not only entirely appropriate to Visyon but also realistic. He has carried out risk and fire assessments of our buildings and activities, and helped us to overhaul our health and safety processes. Adi’s knowledge is clearly up-to-date and comprehensive, and he has instilled us with confidence.
Some of our team have also attended training sessions at Ensure’s base in Nantwich; Fire Warden, First Aid at Work and Food Handling. The courses were very relaxed and easy to follow, but extremely informative. One of our team struggles with anxiety, and Annette and Adi really went out of their way to ensure that they were included, and able to gain the confidence and knowledge to complete the course.
We have found Annette and Adi to be friendly, approachable and extremely helpful at all times. Now we have the peace-of-mind that comes with knowing that we are not putting our staff or our clients at unnecessary risk, and that we are fulfilling our legal requirements. We are so grateful to be supported by Adi and Annette.
