Our approach and
Our people

Like every high performing business, our people are our greatest asset. Our trainers and consultants are hand-picked for their practical industry experience and ability to provide engaging services to our clients.

All of our people are suitably experienced and qualified. The diversity in our team enables us to match our best people to service your needs. It also enables us to bring our breadth of understanding in human resources to engage your staff in a range of issues from safe manual handling, safe work practices and safe job design.

Our ultimate goal is to use our edutainment approach to wake-up and energise participants to see the value of working safely. Not just for the company – but for themselves and their families. We help them understand that caring for themselves and others not only contributes to a better workplace but creates a culture of harmony and cooperation.

It also gives them greater responsibility in their workplace roles and opens up the potential for greater creativity and innovation in all aspects of their day-to-day activity.

Our Testimonials

Training was informative and relative to workplace. Trainer was friendly, patient and knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed the session and would recommend the Train the Trainer to anyone. Well worth the money spent and will be able to deliver the training to others. We had fun doing the sessions.

Have found the training to be amazing. I have learnt so much and look forward to passing the information on to the community to assist in improving their health and wellbeing and their families. Peter made the training fun and informative.

I completed the 4 day Backsafe train the trainer course last week with Peter and Jane online. Best investment I have made in a long time. Peter's knowledge and training style was perfect - and Jane made the whole process run really smoothly. I wish someone had taught me what Peter taught us about manual handling 30 years ago - knowing the why really makes a huge difference and I am very excited to teach others what I have learnt and hopefully make a difference in the way people look at manual handling in the workplace.
