Chris Young, Managing Director MCL Coatings Ltd

"“MCL spent years using H&S and Employment Law companies who were only interested in providing a very generic health and safety system, not specific to our business at all, for a very high premium. The company also went down the route of employing a full time H&S Manager which after a few years became a financial burden with little improvement to the systems. After exhausting these all too familiar avenues we approached John Douglas who has provided us with a cost effective yet business specific system which is simple yet thorough. John is a professional with an abundance of knowledge in many areas of H&S and Environmental practices and I would not hesitate to recommend John to anyone seeking assistance with their business. Thanks John.”"

Gavin Page, Director, Gradelet Print Management

"At Gradelet Print Management, we take our commitment to the health and safety of our employees, visitors and contractors seriously. However, as a small business, we did not have the internal resource or expertise to be certain that we were both complying with all the legislation (which itself is a minefield) or, more importantly, that we were using best practice methods to ensure that we were operating safely. We have found the advice from JDC invaluable in developing an appropriate system for our needs. The system is easy to use and understand and the hands-on support from John Douglas is friendly, professional and invaluable. We have been very pleased with the results from using JDC and are delighted to recommend their services to others."

Robert Hill, Director, CO2 Control

"John Douglas Consultants have helped us enormously. We believed that we had an HSE policy and control procedures that served our business. They were tested under live fire on two of our sites last year. Our policy and procedures failed us. Without JDC we would not be here as a company today. At they time they were brought in to assist we were not a client. However, the lengths that they went to were so very much appreciated. To say that they went that extra mile is to understate it. We now have a working and logical policy and process that serves us, our clients and our sub-contractors. Safety and, of course concern for the environment, are now embedded and part of our everyday working lives. We recommend John Douglas Consulting Ltd unreservedly. They are the benchmark by which all other practitioners should be measured."

In respect of our brokerage you made the whole process extremely simple. As a result we conveyed this to our clients and their feedback has been glowing, which reflects back on us really well. And the costs incurred to use your services both to ourselves as an office based business and to our manufacturing based clients has been seen as real value for money. We shall be recommending your services to our clients going forwards knowing that they are dealing with a business that has integrity, is competitive and simply makes Health & Safety a breeze."

As our Company has grown from 2 to 6 people in a short space of time I was unsure about our legal obligations and searching the internet just confused me further. All of the information you have sent me has been helpful, informative and relevant to our business, plus the office visit and your approach to helping me understand a confusing area has been invaluable.

He also takes care of all the paperwork and documentation side of things which is a big help.

2nd Testimonial - Alan Locke, Managing Director, The Aycen Group

"Dear John Having used your health and safety management services on several occasions I felt I had to take the time to write to you and express my thanks for the excellent work you have done. Health and safety management, to a SME like mine, is daunting. It consumes large amounts of time and effort with little short term measurable benefits. It's always on my to-do pile and seldom gets done. The benefits of good health and safety management policies and practices come to the fore whenever there is a staff problem. The systems you have put in place coupled with the back-up you provide has made the process so simple and easy. Suddenly every potential Health and safety problem goes away with one phone call or email. The costs involved are minimal compared to the potential liabilities that come from adverse litigation. I can unreservedly recommend your extremely cost effective services to any employer. I encourage you to publicise this testimonial and include my telephone number should anyone wish to contact to confirm just how good your services are."

2nd Testimonial - Chris Booth, Hine Chartered Insurance Brokers, Didsbury

"Dear John I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing assistance to our clients in respect of their Health & Safety requirements. As you are aware, the insurance industry has historically focussed its attention on managing the more traditional perils such as fire, flood, malicious damage & theft for the businesses that it insures. Claims have reduced notably as a consequence. However, the rise in personal injury claims to either members of the public or the employees of businesses has been increasing exponentially and as a consequence insurers are now seeing Health & Safety as a critical and ongoing need of business. It is no longer acceptable to confirm that a business carries Health & Safety but that it is 'managed'. For too long, businesses have been downloading Health & Safety literature and filing it away thus treating this requirement as 'job done'. In other instances, businesses have been bringing in specialist firms to address Health & Safety only to be charged a fortune for no perceived benefit. To be fair to most businesses, it's not a lack of wanting to have a Health & Safety policy in place, but the perceived time loss, effort and cost in to putting a framework in place and then managing it going forward as a valuable tool of the business. It is fair to say that for the clients of ours that have so far used your services, Health & Safety is no longer a dirty word or something to be fearful of. The positive feedback we continue to receive is brilliant and, as such, we will continue to be both confident and happy to keep referring your services to our clients going forwards."

Mr M Shumo, Managing Director, Plus Security

3rd Testimonial - Alan Locke, CEO, The Aycen Group

"It’s difficult sometimes, for an S.M.E. to compete with larger companies during a big tender process. The processes and administration involved are complex and time consuming. There was a time when I would have held back from tendering for a large account because of this. Not anymore! John Douglas has shown me how simple the process can be by using his no nonsense, common sense approach. My health and safety processes are so straight forward now. Updates come regularly and the reviews are simple. I cannot recommend John and his company highly enough."

Mike Williams, Managing Director, Car Park Coatings Ltd

"I first encountered John whilst we were working as a subcontractor for another company that was one of his Clients. The quality of the information provided by the other company was, frankly, so much better than ours that I had to enquire who was responsible. I knew the Managing Director of the company well enough to ask him who was behind his Health, Safety and Training Programme and confessed that it made ours look dated. He told me that everything was controlled by the Consultant, John Douglas. He said that he would have no problem if we asked John to add us to his list of Clients so that he could also look after our Health and Safety and Training requirements. Since then, John visited our premises and started afresh to ensure that we complied with all current Health and Safety requirements. He has also set up training programmes for our operatives and helped us qualify for inclusion on select tender lists. Everything John has done for us has been conducted with a personal touch, in a very professional manner and at very reasonable rates. I have been very impressed with the depth and extent of John’s knowledge and would have no hesitation in recommending his services to any company."

Andrew Cohen, Treasurer, South Manchester Sports Centre

""We were recommended to use John's services and we were not disappointed. John delivered on time and for the reasonable price agreed. Without John's input we could have been exposed to a whole raft of Health & Safety issues but he ensured that we were compliant in a matter of a few weeks. We would not hesitate to recommend John to anyone who would need his services"

Richard Wedgewood, Managing Director, Fastsigns Manchester
