Safety Group

 “Our business is protecting yours”

Founded on the belief that there is a less stuffy side of the safety and health industry, Safety Group was founded on the pragmatic principles learned from a career in the Royal Navy. Our founder left the military and found a role in civilian life. He soon realised that the consultants he was working with all seemed to take the same approach. Very stuffy, always emphasising the negative aspects of health and safety to gain compliance and usually not a great service. 

After completing his BSc (Hons) in Safety, Health and Environmental Management Safety Group was born. Based on the principals of customer service, good honest and most importantly pragmatic advice Safety group has gone from strength to strength. Due to this personable approach the team has grown from one person in an office in 2015 to a multi disciplined team of full time employees and associate staff supporting businesses from SME's to FTSE 100 companies. 

We look forward to growing even more in the future and supporting our clients in achieving their goals.
