Effective Health & Safety is not about what you do; but about why you do it. At Harrier UK, we believe it is morally, ethically and financially the right way to operate; not just to comply with a regulation or procedure.
You will find a common sense approach to Health & Safety that will engage your employees, find the best solutions, and improve the efficiency of your business using a sensible quality over quantity model.

As a new and small company our health and safety obligations felt daunting, so we booked training with Harrier to ensure we had the knowledge to meet our legal and moral obligations to our staff and clients. We couldn’t have been happier with the service provided which offered reassurance of our current practices as well as guidance to integrate further practices which would benefit our business. Helen delivered the training which was professional, knowledgeable and importantly down to earth making health and safety actually an interesting topic! Thanks Harrier!
Health & Safety awareness has become incredibly important for any Event Organiser. Whilst it is not my favourite subject, I am aware that I need to ensure that not only are the relevant boxes ticked, but that I have confidence in our procedures and more importantly the Local Authorities and HSE etc are happy that we have addressed all issues and have a safe environment for our staff and customers attending the Event. That is where Harrier UK Ltd come into play. We have used Andy Smith and his team for a number of years now on Major Events and they have done an incredible job for us with excellent paperwork and then backing this up with on site management. From my side, it allows me to get on with managing the event knowing I have a H&S team who are on top of their game looking after all of the appropriate aspects on site and acting as a buffer between me and what can be very time consuming Q&A sessions with the relevant authorities
During a complex disciplinary HR investigation I was conducting, I found myself faced with a health & safety issue to which I did not have enough knowledge to be able to confidently deal with which meant without expert advice I would not have been able to complete the task in hand for my own client. I contacted Helen at Harrier UK for health & safety advice and was provided with an expert, professional and friendly answer which was confirmed in writing and subsequently this formed part of my investigation. Additionally Helen really went the extra mile to ensure I had all the information required and that I understood exactly what it meant. I would highly recommend Harrier UK to anyone as they provide a fantastic service covering many health & safety areas and so customers regardless of their size can be confident in the service they receive.
When faced with a substantial last minute HS obligation for a high-profile event we were organising, Andy Smith and the team at Harrier UK stepped in and managed every requirement flawlessly. Providing great support with clear and effective guidance, we felt we were in very safe hands, resulting in a very successful and smoothly run event.
As the founder of OnDemand Business Support, I often get asked to recommend contacts for various activities and expertise.
In this case, a motorsport company Director, required Health and Safety expertise – specifically to deliver manual handling training to his team of technicians and engineers.
I, of course, suggested Helen McCabe at Harrier UK Ltd.
The director in question fed back that Helen was charming, and professional. The training itself was well organised, and Scott the trainer was knowledgeable and had a humorous style that was well received by the group.
The training was immediately put into practice by the team, and so was viewed as a big success.
He went on to say, that he wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Harrier UK Ltd to other company’s looking to improve their Health & Safety practices.
