SafeWise was established in 2011 to provide cost-effective and bespoke health & safety services to small and medium sized construction companies throughout the West Midlands.

Following the global financial collapse in 2008 the founding partners Sean Tennant & Gary Milligan recognised that many small and medium enterprises could not afford to pay for full-time health & safety managers to help them comply with the numerous H&S legislations, whilst trying to balance the books and deliver a quality product for their clients. 

Since 2011, we have added human resources, fire risk assesments, online and classroom-based training courses along with a range of other services which assist clients with their HR and H&S Responsibilities

Now, 10 years on, we proudly represent some of the finest companies in the West Midlands, but not only construction companies, we have progressed seamlessly into other sectors, firstly through fabrication & installation clients then various industrial, workshop and office environments. We have been ever present in providing vital support to our clients during another global crisis. We have given advice, support and guidance on HR issues and procedures as well as the health, safety and wellbeing of all those affected by our client’s operations throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Health, Safety and Wellbeing of your employees are important, and SafeWise has your back when it matters the most!

SafeWise has “Continually Improved” our products and services over the past 10 years, with health & safety linking very closely to human resources in terms of document control and data protection, it was inevitable that our natural business progression was to offer the same flexible HR advisory service to clients as we did with our H&S services. Our Health & Safety and HR advisors are experienced qualified professionals offering complete H&S and HR support at a fraction of the cost a full-time H&S or HR Manager would.

Training also plays an essential role in all businesses, large or small, in complying with both HR and health & safety legislation. We provide free H&S legislation training for all our clients continuously throughout the year.

We also have a wide range of flexible classroom and online training courses which can be booked to suit your requirements.

Whether you retain SafeWise as your Safety Advisors, HR Advisors or both, you can be assured you will receive a personal service from our qualified professionals.

What Our Clients Say

Just to say thank you very much for the help with our CHAS application. Very fast turnaround, fantastic service!

Chris MacGregor,

As a business Matthews and Tannert have entrusted in SafeWise to be our Health and safety external advisors, they are very reliable and forthcoming with solutions to any issues that may arise, thorough with their evaluations and offer a first class service that is second to none

Craig Matthews,
Matthews & Tannert

We first used Safewise for up-skilling some of our staff in relation to Risk Assessment. Everyone who attended found the course not only useful but also professionally run, with the teacher able to account for the candidates learning needs. From this our relationship has grown, with further training identified in the next year. Not only is the training professional, but so is everyone else who I have come across at Safewise

Gary Morrison,
Busch (UK) Ltd

Our requirements for Respirator face fit testing were carried out professionally, efficiently and at minimal cost. Also, as this can be carried out on-site, there is minimal disruption to our production. Excellent!

Graham Mansell,

Following a dust mask `Train the Trainer' course 'Thank you for delivering such an informative course, I thoroughly enjoyed it'

Hannah Mason,

Just wanna say i'm loving the online training! Site is really user friendly

Hayley Burford,
Steel and Site

Having spent many hours toiling through the CHAS process for a number of years using external H&S consultants, internal H&S officers and many man hours on site for supervisors and managers, I finally decided to speak to SafeWise who I had been using for a couple of years for training purposes. They offered a very reasonable package which was implemented swiftly, processes were initialised, resources pooled together, advice and guidance given and within a short time frame we had successfully obtained our CHAS certification. Stress free and efficient. Outstanding communication throughout the whole process. Money very well spent. Would strongly recommend SafeWise for H&S consultancy and CHAS.

Helen Turner,

We have retained Gary and his team as our Heath & Safety advisers for our company after they provided us with a friendly but professional service

Jane Cairns,

I initially contacted Gary at Safewise to provide services on an ad hoc consultancy basis. The quality of advice and attentive service from Gary and his team has been great. They are able to provide the knowledge and flexibility of service as required. Thanks Gary

Jayne Lorton,

Dear Gary / Sean and all the team at Safewise, As we have just renewed our yearly agreement with yourselves it seemed like an ideal point to drop you a line to thank you for all your work with JA Burke Construction Ltd to date. In the two years since employing Safewise as our external advisors we have made great strides in improving not only overall company health and safety but progression for the individuals involved, from operatives on the ground, supervisors, office staff and managers. This improvement has been structured and planned working at a pace to suit the company and the individuals and Sean is always on hand to offer advice and support where when required. Many of the supervisors have seemed to have taken the aspects learned from managing good health and safety and used this to improving other fields in the work environment. Judging from the positive feedback from clients I am sure all of the above can only strengthen our position when competing for future tenders and we look to building our relationship over the next year.

Jim Burke,
JA Burke

The course was great, it was very informative and well managed
