Professional and honest company.

I have known Dave for over six years now and have recommended him to numerous clients over those years. The feedback from all of them was outstanding, not only does The Way Forward offer a professional and honest approach to health and safety but they also enable businesses to grow, get larger contracts through having good accreditations , and as well keeping employees safe, can also save companies money on insurance costs etc.
I honestly could not recommend Dave enough.

Health and safety Assistance

We initially asked Dave to assist us in implementing a H&S management system for our business incorporating all the elements of a sustainable H&S policy. From our first meeting it was evident that Dave had the experience and knowledge to develop a system that has now been tailored to our business requirements and industry sector requirements. Included in the management system is a detailed set of procedures which guide us through the H&S legislative requirements for the business. Dave provides a personal service and we find that he is not only friendly and approachable but is professional in his approach and is always there when required by the company. I would highly recommend any business who finds H&S a little bit of a minefield to use Dave and the services of 'The Way Forward North East'
