Safety Fire & Environment Ltd

A pragmatic approach to your risk management needs

Need risk management consultation or training?


We offer a range of safety services based on a pragmatic approach to people's safety. We believe safety is about assisting businesses with their activity without unnecessary hindrance.

We're opposed to the H&S Jobsworth approach to safety management. However, we also believe safety is not a paperwork exercise and we seek to work with managers to change culture through information, training and example.
