Providing customers with a first-class service is central to the philosophy at EP Risk Consultancy, so we are delighted when they respond with constructive comments on our training courses, health and safety support and assessments.

Here is a selection of testimonials:

Lindsey Murray, Operations Manager, Charles F Stead

Health and safety support and document writing
We wanted to build up our company’s health and safety document library as well as have a solid foundation on which to change the culture surrounding health and safety. Lisa has been fantastic, always available on the end of the phone or email, she is very pragmatic and understands the unique challenges we face in our industry. We are very much looking forward to working with EP Risk in the future and we can’t recommend them highly enough.

IOSH managing safely course
My colleague and I started this course with limited knowledge in health and safety and Jason did a fantastic job of training us in a way that was engaging and interesting. I left the course feeling much more confident in my new role as duty holder, I feel as though I can now work with the team from a position of knowledge so we can all keep learning and improving together. The course is great for everyone wanting to build some strong foundations in health and safety and Jason was an excellent teacher. We will definitely be sending our team for more training in the future!


Craig Hollingworth, RSR Construction and Project Management, Holmfirth

We have just appointed EP Risk Consultancy to be our Competent Person to meet our legal requirements and assist with CHAS accreditation. Mick Brennan and the team completed an initial audit and a training needs analysis.

They arranged the training and assisted me in completing bespoke risk assessments and we gained accreditation in a very short time. I would definitely recommend EP Risk Consultancy. I know they will support my business and they also provide a help line. We were particularly pleased with the one-to-one attention given to our young apprentice. EP Risk identified that he had little experience and spent a good amount of time with him personally, which we thought was a nice touch.


June Button, Office Manager, C H Middleton, Doncaster

We have achieved the Construction Health and Safety Assessment for the past three years without external help. However this year, for 2021 accreditation, we would not have succeeded without the support of Mick Brennan, the EP Risk Health and Safety Manager, who undertook a number of assessments and reviews that were beyond my unqualified skill set. We also had problems with our first aid appointees and Mick enabled access the same afternoon to the EP Risk online portal that enabled two employees to achieve Emergency First Aid Certificates that were required.


Caroline, Jillings Baddeley, Master Upholsterers, Leeds

I have just completed and passed the IOSH Managing Safely course with Jason Askew. The course was very good. Jason had lots of examples which helped me understand more and I feel I have a better knowledge in my role of duty holder at my place of work. He has a great knowledge of the material he is teaching and makes things easy to follow. I would highly recommend the course and Jason as a tutor.


Linda, Angela and Caroline, Jillings Baddeley, Leeds

Mick Brennan (EP Risk Health and Safety Manager) is fantastic, a credit to your company – amazing service from the company as a whole. He guided us through all procedures we needed to update, got the training we needed sorted out and did the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme application from start to finish. We could not do without him as our competent person! Looking forward to a great working relationship for years to come. Thank you for all your help and support.

Some of our directors attended the IOSH Managing Safely course at EP Risk Consultancy, which they found very informative. The informal delivery of the content from Jason Askew made the information easier to digest and process. Overall, an excellent course which gave the attendees an excellent foundation on which to build their own health and safely knowledge, delivered in an enthusiastic manner in a comfortable environment.



Allan Hinchliffe, General Manager, Gardinia Windows, Huddersfield

Without a shadow of doubt health and safety regulations are a daunting prospect and legal obligation for any responsible employer. Faced with this onerous prospect, Gardinia Windows realised that we would need professional help, advice and training to be able to comply with and satisfy Health and Safety Executive regulations. 

We took the decision to appoint EP Risk Consultants and spoke to the Health and Safety Manager Mick Brennan who quickly assured us of their expertise and help that they would provide. Mick followed this up with a visit to our premises and immediately commenced with building our new H&S file including risk assessments and method statements. 

We have just completed a full day of training in H&S good working practice, where all our installation fitters, surveyors, service engineers and senior management attended and fully took part. This was led by Mick Brennan who was informative, engaging and knowledgeable. We now feel more than confident and realise that we have the backing of EP Risk Consultants who will continue to help and support us. I would have no hesitation in recommending the EP Risk team to anyone requiring Health & Safety help.


Gill Rowe​, Night Shift Manager, Snuggledown

I was apprehensive about doing the IOSH Managing Safely course, but I need not have worried. Jason was professional and thorough, made me feel at ease and explained everything perfectly. I was not afraid to ask any question I was unsure of as I felt very relaxed within the group.

I learned a lot during the course: 

  • How to lead my team to prevent accidents happening in the workplace and to be more aware of the risk and hazards around them.
  • How to identify hazards and eliminate them for a safer working environment
  • How to investigate incidents or near misses.
  • How to gather information on what caused an accident to prevent it happening again
  • How to calculate levels of  risk – low, medium or high– and then record your findings.

Overall,  I found the course helpful and interesting.


Vikki Lomax, Centre Manager, Yorkshire Children’s Centre

I wasn’t looking forward to the IOSH Managing Safely course, but from the moment we sat down on the first day Jason made us feel relaxed and went through what we would be doing on each of the three days. There were four of us on the course and this was just enough, as we all came from different backgrounds and helped each other when one of us didn’t quite understand. 

If we weren’t sure of something, Jason would explain and always gave us an example of what he meant but in a context which helped us to understand it. It was full of interaction from everyone. I would definitely recommend the course.

Sharon Jones, Eurobung, Mirfield

I would like to thank you for the course as it has been extremely helpful – and a bit of an eye opener if I’m honest.


Lee Welsh, Parkinson-Spencer Refractories, Halifax

Thank you for last week, I thought the course content and delivery was excellent. Can we look at booking three further days in September, please, on COSHH, manual handling and ladder safety?’


Susan Lewis, Executive, international fashion retailer

Just to let you know the course on first aid, manual handling and fire safety went well yesterday. All 12 attendees turned up and it was a very full-on but informative day. As always, it was brilliantly executed by Mick Brennan who seems to make all the serious content fun.  I came away feeling I had gained more, even though I attended the course three years ago.


Mathew Bamforth

I really enjoyed the IOSH Managing Safely course. The course was well presented in a relaxed friendly environment. The venue was great and the course gave me a much greater understanding of health and safety at work. I am looking forward to implementing some of the things I’ve learned in my workplace.


Faye GearyDirector of Support Services, Ambitions 4 Kirklees

The course was delivered in a professional manner and Mick always makes training enjoyable. He has that charisma about him he holds your attention. He makes it interesting and easy to understand and he will revisit anything you are not 100% sure of. The downside is parking but think this is an issue for everyone, but the venue is really nice. Lunch was provided which was very nice. Great to get complimentary tea and coffee to keep you going through the day.
