After over a decade of working in a consultancy and health and safety role within other organisations, I felt restricted and constantly held back.  Having to charge clients high rates and tie them into long and drawn out contracts without giving a quality and personable service, led to the idea of a new way of providing any sector with the quality and one to one care I would have wanted from a consultancy.

The idea of being able to provide a service with realistic contracts, close contact with each client and a review of how client and consultant are performing, would mean that I could give continual improvement to all clients.  Like the world of health and safety, we have to keep evolving and improving, hence the name of my company: Evolve Health and Safety.

As a single mother of two young children, at the time, and working towards my Fellowship with IOSH, I felt hesitant and lacked the confidence to push forward with my dream of starting up on my own.

With the support of friends and family I persisted and Evolve Health and Safety Limited has gone from strength to strength and become an ‘Award Winning’ consultancy, along with myself now gaining the most prestigious title within IOSH as a Chartered Fellow.

We now have offices in Cumbria, Manchester, London, Cardiff and Pwllheli and we have hand-picked the very best Health and Safety consultants to join our organisation. Despite the growth, our ethos remains the same and we are proud to be one of the fastest growing Health and Safety consultancies in the UK.

Through consultancy Services, Training and specialised packages for large and small businesses, we are able to provide our clients with all they need to ensure they are compliant, whilst saving time, money and hassle.
