Why us?

Management & Safety Training Ltd is a specialist health & safety training and consultancy practice which operates to the highest ethical and professional standards. This, of course, is only to be expected since the founder, Andy Farrall, is internationally qualified and not only holds a Fellowship with one professional body but also Chartered Member status with two others (one of which is based in Australia).

Are we the cheapest?

No – we are not the cheapest consultancy or training company, and we make no apologies for that fact!

It’s an unfortunate fact of life that health & safety is not a “regulated” profession, which means that anybody can set themselves up as a “health & safety consultant” irrespective of whether they have any formal qualifications in the subject, carry professional indemnity insurance, or are subject to any professional code of conduct. And all of these criteria, of course, carry with them associated costs.

Our advice to potential clients is this: by all means shop around, because that’s the prudent thing to do, but if you’re going to choose your consultant purely on the basis of lowest price then the maxim of “caveat emptor” should apply. Or, translated (very) loosely, “if it looks too good to be true then it probably IS too good to be true”!

Health & safety services

Working in partnership with the client we can provide accredited training courses (approved by the awarding body HABC); develop courses to meet clients’ specific requirements; and provide directors and managers with a range of safety consultancy and audit services.

Accident investigation

Andy Farrall is also a fully qualified industrial accident investigator, and in order to provide clients with specialist accident investigation services has set up a separate division, iNDAXCON. A specific website has been set up for this division and can be found at www.indaxcon.org

The aim of iNDAXCON is to provide companies who are at risk of prosecution with:

  • Accident investigation services to identify the root cause of the accident and thus potential liabilities of all parties involved
  • An independent review of your health & safety management systems – systems which will come under intensive scrutiny in the event of an HSE prosecution or a civil action for negligence

We can also provide companies with specialist training both in accident scene management  and in planning their accident management strategy.
