A Specialist Support Service for the Trees & Timber Sector

Safety Health Environmental Quality

We provide support and assistance with all things SHEQ and assurance management. Perhaps this sounds like a foreign language but our industry is becoming more consistent in terms of what clients and customers expect. If you want to win contracts and keep customers happy then high standards of operational safety, environmental care and consideration, good quality work within delivery timescales are all part of everyday business. It makes sound business sense for organizations of all sizes to proactively gear up to satisfy these requirements and this is where our services can provide you with the advice and support you need. 


We offer help in areas from operator skills training through to managers' and directors' development training. If you need company inductions, on-site toolbox talks, technical training, behavioural safety or competence assessments then give us a call. Recording individual competency and experience is vital to planning a company's needs and predicting and planning training costs. Better forward planning can reduce or eliminate downtime and costs. We can help you put systems in place that will do this.

Our business is here to help you and your business

Martin Lennon



  • We can help you to create or develop the documentation and procedures you need and your clients require.
  • We can help you sort the back office stuff so you can concentrate on your main activities, winning the work and completing it safely and efficiently.



We're able to provide ad hoc or regular assistance as often or as little as you need, reducing the need for you to employ specialist staff. If you only need some guidance to get you started or perhaps a template for a document or process which you can then complete yourself, we can do that too. If you need just one project completing such as producing risk assessments, method statements, a training matrix or reviewing and developing your health and safety policy to suit your operations we are here to help.



Paper is easy to recycle but you don't need too much of it!


There is no need to go over the top and produce unnecessary paperwork.
The Health and Safety Executive image here reflects a common misconception.  A risk assessment does not need to be a large, wordy document. A company's documentation must meet legal requirements but also ensure it is profitable, efficient and sustainable. 
We can help you streamline what you may already have or we can review and develop your policies and procedures or fill any gaps.


Get your message out



Having appropriate company paperwork is important, however if the operators or managers don't understand the reasons for it, or how to get the best from it, the business will not work effectively as a team.
If you need staff or contractor training or safety briefings we can help you plan and deliver the event whether your business is large or small.

How we help is up to you

Perhaps we can help with a review of, or production of, an individual document, policy, specific health and safety related document such as a tool box talk, a procedure or perhaps an operational method statement or Bio Security policy.


Sometimes our customers need something to help them win a contract or to satisfy a specific client.


Our reviews generate a feedback report on findings, suggestions or recommendations highlighting possible development opportunities. But our support is available for as long as you need it.

We regularly help people with just a one day, one-off, individual site audit around safety and quality standards and operational practices. This involves a site visit including discussions with operational and management staff which generates a feedback report. 


As businesses develop, a one day, one off staff competency review can help managers by generating an up to date training matrix and training plan. This can help reduce downtime and training costs by predicting and planning future training needs including any refresher requirements.


We are currently offering UAG members discount on our services. 

H&S policy, generic and site specific RA's,  LOLER and COSHH related documentation review

A commonly requested service is an office and a site audit (including discussions with operational and management staff). Then a remote desk-based review of all the above relevant documentation and the production of feedback report. 


The report may be enough for the business to correct minor issues internally however if more detailed corrections are needed we can provide that service which is costed on the basis of how much time and work is involved.

A more comprehensive package 

Some customers want more of a comprehensive review which looks at all the topics listed in the sections above and also the business's environmental and working at height policies, their assets and PUWER records and procedures and also the company training / competency records with feedback report on possible and recommended developments.


Depending on the business size this can take a few days at the business's office and a site visit and discussions with operational and management staff. Then a remote desk-based review of all relevant documentation and the production of feedback report. 

The report may be enough for the business to correct minor issues but if more help is needed we can provide that service which is costed on the basis of how much time and work is involved.


We are currently offering a UAG member discount of £50 off this option. 

The full monty

If you prefer we can offer the above services as one-off reviews or we can provide a regular planned 6 monthly or annual support service.


If people opt for the yearly service we can (if they wish) add Martin's name to the business safety documentation as the external HSEQ consultant and we will maintain, update and develop your safety documentation. We also offer an on call support service as part of this formal yearly-retained contract-based service. 

This option enable you to set the number of support visits or meeting dates that we will take part in for the year ahead. Or you can leave it flexible to fit your needs. There is no maximum number of visit dates but we discuss the realistic needs at the start of each year so you get the support when you need it.


We like to be clear:
Contract / agreement - means customers sign up for a year long contract and can access assistance and support at any time on a day rate basis. 
On call - means they can call as an when they may need assistance.
Retained - means there is a set up fee payable at the start of any longer term contract / agreement and a minimum of 2 office / site visits are required within the year. Visits and projects are based on a day rate fee and priced individually.

VAT is charged at standard rate.

We are keen to provide you with an efficient, effective, quality service as and when you need it. Please give Martin a call on 07901514259 or use the contact page to send us an email.
