Health & safety consultancy

At EEF, we’re focused on keeping your people – and your balance sheet – in the best of health.

We offer closely integrated health and safety training and consultancy packages which combine the latest skills and best practice for your people, with the peace of mind of frontline support.

As with our training, consultancy is available to suit you. We can work for you as a one-off provider or as a long-term partner. Our consultants can work alongside your own people, and each package can be tailored to meet your needs.

But if your people are busy delivering for your customers, then we can provide you with all the HSE resources you need. You could have your own HSE department – a phone call away.
