The health and safety consultancy business was set up in Peterborough in 2005. The team of advisors provides guidance for businesses across many sectors, including construction, events, manufacturing, logistics, care homes and many more.

The team offer a range of services to a diverse clients portfolio from across the UK and Europe.

Speaking to Peterborough Matters about how the firm has managed during the coronavirus crisis, Ed Smith said: "We have been operating at half capacity staff-wise but the work has been coming in thick and fast. We have been really lucky to have been able to continue trading in a semi-normal capacity, as we know many others have not. 

"We have been holding online training sessions and bringing in other forms of income to help keep the business generating income. Lots of our clients have been contacting us daily for advice on what to do with their own business in the Covid–19 landscape, and we have helped guide them along with advice from the Health and Safety Executive and, of course, the government. 

"We are now coming out of the first phase of lockdown and lots of businesses that have been closed are now reopening. It is amazing to see the resilience of British business. We've been there for business throughout lockdown and we are still here for businesses that need our help on all things safety."
