What our customers say
Our public accountancy practice recently engaged the services of Safety Makers to review our business, and compile our much needed WHS Policy and related documentation.
As a large regional practice with 17 staff it was critical that we have this place, and Lydia Plim did this with the upmost professionalism, knowledge, efficiency and ease.
As an accountancy practice we have also recently undergone our regular Quality Review with CPA Australia, and Lydia’s WHS documentation was presented to our quality reviewer. Our CPA reviewer specifically congratulated our firm on the level of quality and completeness that we had achieved with our WHS documentation, and gave our firm accolades as to its level of professionalism.
Safety Makers, and Lydia Plim, were so easy to deal with, there were minimal disruptions to our work flow and work place, and the entire policy was completed and presented to our firm with great efficiency of time.
Lydia’s level of knowledge is exceptional, and her integrity and professionalism of the very highest standards. I would highly recommend Safety Makers to every single business, and especially to any industry where quality reviews are a regular occurrence, and a high level of up to date WHS Policies and documentation must always be in place.
“We found Safety Makers to be very flexible, approachable and knowledgeable. We really appreciated that Lydia worked around our busy schedule to fit in our training course. We found it very difficult to find a company that would train a small number of people but Safety Makers were happy to offer the training course to just my husband and I. We were impressed with the obvious level of expertise Lydia has in this industry and all of our questions were answered thoroughly. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Safety Makers and will continue to work with them in all matters related to WHS”.
WOW, this is a magnificent report, we are in your debt. Again thank you for the considerable amount of time that you have obviously put in.
The audit tool they used was very comprehensive and highlighted a few issues we had not identified. Both the auditors were approachable and happy to share their knowledge, they undertook the audit in the least intrusive manner possible. The report we received was well structured and easy to follow and clearly demonstrated what we have been doing well and areas of improvement. The improvement areas were supported by clear and attainable recommendations.
I would just like to extend a sincere thanks to Lydia for her recent audit of workplace health and safety out at our factory and offices.
Mel (my wife) and I run our Cabinet Making business which consist of two factories, offices, showroom and 11 staff. We both found Lydia very easy to communicate with and extremely knowledgeable in Workplace health and safety law, and the obligations we as employees must provide.
Lydia was very profession and polite when taking us through areas where we can improve safety and pointing out items that expose us to risk not only for employee safety, but penalties for breaches of Workplace Health and safety Law.
Lydia provided us with detailed documents outlining where to improve, full SWMS for all our machinery, installation, handling and much more, and a workplace health and safety management system.
Because of our proactive steps to involve an independent safety provider like Lydia from Safety Makers, our unfortunate recent event where our machinist stuck his hand in our panel saw with disastrous results helped our position within this case. Steps taken earlier making the area and machine safer protected ourselves from litigation. Unfortunately, this was a simple case of operator error and were glad to say our employee will be returning to us shortly.
The Safe Work NSW representative that conducted the inspection after the incident praised us for being proactive, he seemed to relax a little and be more willing to work with us once he knew we’d taken these steps earlier. He also knew of Lydia and spoke highly of her and the knowledge she brings to the industry.
Not only do I have no hesitation recommending Lydia from Safety Makers but encourage all business owners to have full audit done on your most valuable asset, your business.
Safety Makers work with our Australian stores and were recommended to help us ‘Kiwi-ise’ the Health & Safety at Work Toolkit for our New Zealand stores. The project involved additional research by Lydia in understanding the differences which she completed very efficiently and professionally. We are very happy with Lydia’s services and will continue to work closely with her.
