I can formally confirm that Award Health & Safety are one of Keir’s preferred deliverers of Asbestos Awareness training within the Keir Southern Region.
I have used them on three projects and found them to be very prompt, diligent and great at delivering what is a mandatory requirement to any person being set to work under all Health and Safety guidance.
Chris at Award Health & Safety has also been a particular source of reliable knowledge on the changing world of asbestos regulations.
Award have also delivered the asbestos awareness message at less formal events for Keir such as our Spring Reception and SHE seminars to a wider audience of professionals and senior managers.
I have no hesitation in recommending them for any work within this vein.
When it comes to asbestos awareness training for our members we ask for high standards of delivery and professionalism in all aspects. Award Health and Safety always achieve on both counts, and our members receive true value for money year upon year.

I have worked with Chris Ward of Award Health & Safety for a number of years.
I have found Chris to be very passionate and knowledgeable about Health & Safety in the workplace. He has worked alongside my business for a number of years now and with his knowledge has enabled my business to achieve various accreditations i.e. Safecontractor and CHAS. His training skills are second to none and I would have no hesitation in recommending Chris to any size business.
Award Health & Safety provide all my training needs and I know that should I require any advice Chris is only a phone call away.
We have had the pleasure of working with Chris Ward of Award Health & Safety since November 2011. We have found their advice invaluable and their ability to translate the ever growing health & safety regulations to both workforce and management is effortless! Many thanks to you all.

Lush have been working with Award since 2009 who have helped us to get all our health and safety in order. Chris has been a fantastic help, giving advice when needed, writing our policy, delivering training and updating us on the latest legislation. He is always on the end of the phone to help in a crisis and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Award to anyone.

Award Health and Safety have been of great service to Authorn for a number of years with onsite requirements, training and also seeking accreditations from various organisations.
They are very knowledgeable with all aspects of site construction health and safety requirements, and provide a prompt and friendly service.

Award Heath & Safety provide an excellent all round service for our external health & safety consultancy requirements.

Leading Leadwork Services Ltd
We used Award for some essential site staff training in Manual Handling and Working at Heights and were extremely pleased with what was delivered. The training was engaging and fun and staff gave it great feedback. The fact the training was in house kept costs and travelling times right down. I will use Award for all the training I possibly can from now on!
The Downs School,
“Kern Limited have had an excellent working relationship with Award Health and Safety for the past five years, during which time they have updated our Health & Safety Policy and Fire risk assessment annually. Assistance with the format of product and generic risk assessments has been provided, and COSHH Risk assessments have been completed on our behalf.
Award H&S have conducted various training courses for us and any health & safety queries have been dealt with efficiently. The staff are friendly and are able to communicate in a way which makes things clear and easy to understand”.
Ecological Planning & Research Limited has been using the services of Award H&S Limited since 2007. We are particularly impressed with their bespoke approach to our requirements, something which larger impersonal H&S Consultancies never seem to achieve. They are particularly good at listening to us and are genuinely interested in our business and ensuring that we meet, and comply with, our H&S requirements. Chris and his team are always contactable by phone or email should we need guidance, and make themselves available to meet up on site if we have issues that require their expertise.
They always keep us up to speed with new legislation and ensure that we follow this through with our own internal policies, procedures, training and risk assessments. Our staff really enjoy Chris’ training workshops as he manages to deliver what is a serious subject in an interesting, interactive and enlightening manner.
I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Award H&S Limited to other companies and would be more than happy to discuss this with anybody who is considering using their services.
Ecological Planning & Research Limited
Two years ago we first heard of Award H&S when we were looking for a local company to provide training for us, as our current H&S consultants worked out as non cost effective solution.
Chris came along and carried out the training for us and the amount of positive feedback I received from operatives and management was unbelievable. They liked Chris’s teaching manner in the way he made things simple and put things into basic English that everyone understood. During the next two years Chris kept enquiring about his company taking over all our H&S requirements, and informed me of all the benefits of doing this and how he could help….At that time I never realised how true this was!!
At the beginning of the year after long talks we decided to pay the extra money and bring Award on as our new consultants and I can honestly say I have never looked back. Chris and his team worked extremely hard in checking all our systems and processes, and I know for a fact spent many an evening working on it as well!
Since setting up a new updated plan of systems and process within the company Chris and his team have proven to be invaluable in the support, care and personal touch they have shown us, and in many instances have gone completely beyond the call of duty.
In the last 11 months the company has now gone from strength to strength and hugely raised its profile with local councils in showing how on the ball we now are with H&S legislation, CDM Random site inspections etc. Every single process Chris has updated or shown guidance on has been praised by our clients and commented on, such as…”Its so refreshing to see a Construction company doing what they say they do as far as H&S is concerned!”…..Hence us now securing more contracts and winning more business.
Our relationship has now got stronger and stronger and we now consider Award as an extension of our own company, and long may it continue!

I would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks and gratitude for the professional and swift manner in which you have updated our company’s safety requirements.
As the Health & Safety Director for the company I am heartened to see that over the last 2 years we have not had a single accident on site. Not even a minor incident!
This is due in part, to our safety officer attending your varied training courses, but mainly it is because of your excellent input to our safety regime and your friendly but firm approach to the men on site.
I have recommended your services to others and will continue to do so. Many thanks.
