“The Health and Safety training was comprehensive but pitched at a level that was understandable for all of us. We have a multi-national group and Paul's expert delivery reassured all concerned that passing the exam was achievable. From the cleaning staff, to the heads of departments, everyone walked away feeling satisfied that they had achieved the learning outcome and could work together through collaboration and good working practices to keep our workplace as safe as possible”
