"We are very conscious that in the manufacturing environment that we work in, that we need well informed and trained personnel. Safety and Quality are the underpinning areas of our business and this is never more apparent than when we train our Safety Representatives. The IOSH Managing Safely course delivered by your instructors is outstanding and we have had nothing but good feedback from the work force. This feedback has mentioned the professionalism, knowledge and relevance to our manufacturing environment making it easy for the Safety Representatives to relate the content into their every day job roles. On a personal note, I would like to thank you for your continued help in supporting the quick demands of our training needs. Your administrative staff have been really accommodating in their response to requests, information on changes and understanding when we have had problems with our complex vendor / payment systems. Looking to the future, we are a growing business and we are looking forward to continuing this good working relationship that we have built with your company."
