First of all I would like to thank David and Claire at Thomas Safety Services Ltd for the excellent service provided to Total Spray Solutions Ltd over the past few years. We are an onsite spraying company who are challenged with many health and safety concerns on a daily basis and vary from hazardous materials to working at height. As our business progressed so did the demand of health and safety facing us with dilemmas of how to continue working safe and keeping up to date and even ahead of competitors on health and safety. As you well know a good health and safety record within the construction industry is paramount. We made the decision to get in contact with Thomas Safety Services Ltd and within a short time we had meeting with David Thomas booked to discuss our needs. From first impression we were very impressed, David’s knowledge and attitude to Health and Safety was second to none and gave us a great deal of confidence to put our trust in him. We have now been a customer/friend of Thomas Safety Services Ltd for the past few years and built up a fantastic relationship, we cannot speak highly enough of them as for what they have done to help build our health and safety status. From helping to complete CHAS, SAFEcontractor assessments to asbestos awareness, Safe Method Statements and Company Health and Safety policies, Thomas Safety Services Ltd got in covered. It’s not often we write a testimonial about someone or a service but after all Thomas Safety Services Ltd has done for us we find this is the least we can do. If you’re like ourselves and find that health and safety is becoming a bit challenging I would not hesitate and get in contact with David or Claire, I guarantee you will be impressed with what they can do for you. Thank you again to David and Claire at Thomas Safety Services Ltd. Keith Gapper and James Hood. Directors – Total Spray Solutions Ltd

COMMENTS FROM CONTRACTORS ASSESSED VIA A SSIP MEMBER SCHEME
It was extremely refreshing to see how thorough the assessment and audit process was of our renewal with David Thomas of Thomas Safety Services Ltd. On so many occasions in the construction industry you are asked to supply proof of evidence for Accreditations, Tender Bid submissions and PQQs. It is nice to have constructive feedback to find out that someone has actually taken the time to read what we have spent time writing but more importantly to supply us with information on how we can improve as a business. James Speller – Speller Metcalfe Ltd
Thank you for your advice and for highlighting the ommisions in our procedures and policies. Your examination of documentation was very thorough and has enabled us to bring everything up to date so we can go forward on a much firmer footing. I will bring the areas you have identified as needing further consideration to the attention of the MD and other appropriate staff so that we can continue to improve these aspects. Ann Goodwin – Premier Engineering (Yorkshire) Ltd
We have had accreditation since 2011 and as a widely recognised standard it is an essential tool for our Company. This year our assessor was Dave Thomas of Thomas Safety Services. His advice and recommendations during the assessment period was supportive and very helpful and ensured that we not only achieved our accreditation again this year, but we were also able to improve existing working practices in line with legislation. As a Company we would highly recommend the accreditation process. Jane Kaula – Octagon Shopfitting & Building Services Ltd
I thank you for your professional attitude throughout our application. You raised relevant points that required addressing, but in doing so, kindly pointed us in the direction to resolve the matters. In the spirit of the accreditation process and the continual progressive standard it sets out clearly within its mandate, for aspiring and current applicants, you have in my opinion, managed to discern the requirements for compliance and raise the bar by your insistence and perseverance in pursuit of excellence, which makes not only company management think, but also fellow H & S chartered professionals. John Capewell – Limmer Roofing Ltd.
An extremely helpful and personable assessor made our application far more straightforward than I first thought it would be. The important improvements and changes to our systems that were implemented throughout the application process have given us confidence in our H&S structure and most certainly accreditation is now an important asset recognised by our customers. Accreditation gives you a powerful tool when competing for new business and especially with new customers and also saves time on completing H&S forms. Sharon Jepp – St George Facilities Ltd.
Having had the accreditation process dropped on me at short notice, due to the abrupt retirement of our Health and Safety Advisor, even the thought of it filled me with horror. Having never done this before, I didn’t even know if I was putting together the correct documentation. I found you to be both helpful and sympathetic to my situation and I would like to thank you sincerely for both the assistance and the patience that you extended to me throughout this process. Julie Couchman – Four Seasons Air Conditioning Supplies Ltd.
Firstly I would like to say a big Thank You to our assessors – Thomas Safety Services especially to Dave Thomas who was ace from the very beginning of our application to the end Compliant. He was excellent guiding us through and being totally understanding, e-mail questions and queries were answered by return and even a phone call. Being accredited makes us take a wide and more professional approach to our health and safety which can only be a good thing. Well done! Sharon McIvorDean – A R Mitchell (Plasterers) Ltd.
Your comments have helped Select Electrical (GB) Ltd improve their H&S systems and ultimately achieve accreditation. Thank you for your speedy responses and helpful comments. Keith Slack – Select Electrical (GB) Ltd.
The whole process prior to starting the application seemed very daunting & we imagined being overrun with paperwork. However, our assessor was very helpful & constructive with his guidance. He made the entire process straight forward & showed a level of patience that can only be termed as an asset. If anyone is in two minds as to whether to apply or not, the process is straight forward and manageable. If you have any problems your assessor is there to help. I highly commend the entire team for their level of competence & support. David Brough – Sunshade Services Ltd.
Professional, always available and happy to provide sound knowledge and advice. Matthew Wilkinson – Ford Bros Services Ltd
