About Us

Welcome to Safety Wise – About Us

SafetyWise is based in a village in Somerset, although you may struggle to find it on a map. Don’t worry, we come to you, and our transport networks are good, with main line rail links to London and the north, Bristol airport, and major roads all at hand.

The Organisation

You would expect us to have good health and safety policies, and a simple but effective approach to risk assessment! What we also have are policies on equality and diversity, and environmental matters. We have a strong commitment to valuing people, which is reflected in our own organisation and in our approach to client organisations.

The Way We Work

Essentially, we’re part of your team. We have a contribution to make, but we want to make sure it is of value, therefore we’re interested in the whole organisation and the people in it. Our clients are our colleagues and friends, and we will develop considerable loyalty and commitment to organisations we are involved with. And like most colleagues, we enjoy a joke and a relationship not just about work.
