Here are just a few of the testimonials we have received from our clients.

I have used James Cumming from Simple Safety Advice to carry out CDM Co-ordinator duties on many occasions over the last few years. In that time James and his team have provided my projects with excellent support and guidance demonstrating their breadth and depth of knowledge required for projects of some complexity and size. The commitment and input to the building designs were excellent throughout the project and I can fully recommend Simple Safety Advice consultants.

“A brand new experience for us at Roselands Heating, a health and safety consultant that is genuinely keen to help and proactively looks after it’s client.

As a small business our previous experience with health and safety consultants was pretty poor to say the least, overpriced, complicated paperwork and a level of service which fell very short of our reasonable expectations.

This is certainly not the case with Simple Safety Advice. They have put together a simple health and safety system that keeps us on the right side of the law, but is easy to understand and implement. The service is very professional and excellent value for money and perhaps most importantly we have someone who is always available to help when ever we need them.”

Simple Safety Advice has helped us to establish a robust health and safety system with all the relevant safety documentation to ensure that we are compliant with the relevant laws and legislations.

Tree surgery is a specialist industry and Simple Safety Advice has provided excellent support and advice to our business regarding health and safety. The nature of our work requires some high risk activities to be undertaken by our staff and Simple Safety Advice has always ensured that our systems and procedures are simple and workable for us and our clients to understand and put into practice. James Cumming has delivered training to our staff on the use of safety documentation and practical application of industry guidelines. He has also attended briefing workshops on our behalf to then disseminate the key information to our workers.

He has assisted us to deal with issues such as hand/arm vibration, drugs testing and policies, asbestos awareness and is often our first point of contact to help clarify legislative requirements and/or to assist with contractual documentation. We have been most pleased with the audits that James has conducted for us and he has also supported our work to gain ISO standards. We would highly recommend Simple Safety Advice to others as their staffs are extremely knowledgeable and they are always up to date with the latest changes to all relevant legislation and laws.

As a family run business with many years of experience in the building industry, we have been most impressed and satisfied with the services provided to us by Simple Safety Advice. James really takes the time to ensure that he understands the nature of the company and its needs to then ensure that his advice is relevant and workable for us. We have been provided with an action plan that is manageable for us to implement and the use of regular independent audits enables us to ensure that any new systems and procedures are being used appropriately.

“Having worked with James Cumming when he was a construction manger, knowing his commitment to safety and understanding of the legal requirements and ability to put this in to workable systems, I was delighted when he started his own company and we where able to utilise his services.

He assisted myself and other senior managers in achieving our NVQs, tailored our poor procedures and systems and brought our compliance up to date.

Costs are always a issue in recession and James ensured that all cost were recorded and justified, his commitment to ensure that senior staff took on board new ideas and systems and where in full understanding allowed cost to be reduced as senior managers trained and instructed site staff with the assistance of James only when required, Due to James ongoing assistance we are now looking to progress towards CHAS and construction line membership. This would not have been achievable with out his assistance.”

Mark Matthews, Matthews Demolition, Managing Director.

“Simple Safety Advice Ltd’s approach to our Health & Safety needs was a breath of fresh air in comparison to our previous experiences. James never viewed our requirements as a cash cow, which should be milked. So often Health & Safety consultants sell their services on fear, but then generate arbitrary, non specific paperwork. This couldn’t be further from the truth when dealing with James, his approach meant I had to get in and roll my sleeves up, and really start to appreciate and tailor the way we handle and quantify risk in our business. James’s pragmatic approach and realistic suggestions were always respectful of our budget constraints, but still gave us ways to not only be compliant, but more importantly, to be safer because of it.”

Ben Clear, Contracts Director, CRB Builders.

“We have utilised James Cumming’s services since he started out as a Safety Consultant. He has been directly responsible for two major contracts with our client Birse Metro. His main task was liaising with the client and completing all safety documentation. He was at one point producing 3 – 4 Method Statements a week which were passed to HSQE. He has also assisted with our rail link up with ISO 14002 / 18000 and 9001. He is involved in the completion of site audits and in-house training and senior management, office staff and our Senior Contract Managers regularly request his input and support on all types of Safety issues. He has a railway pass and entry certification and has completed Birse Metro Safety Training. I am more than happy to provide a reference for James as he has proved to be very capable and professional. We consider him to be an asset to our business.”
