My success is absolutely down to your excellent standard of instruction, and the way that you taught us. You actually taught us Health and Safety very thoroughly and you ensured that we understood it – you did not treat it as a cramming exercise, just to pass an exam. Consequently: even a couple of months later, I can still clearly visualise many of the examples and cases that you quoted, in order to bring a rather dry subject to life. I am delighted; my wife is amazed.” Bryan Price, Logistics Manager, British Steel


Will was a terrific tutor for the recent NEBOSH course I attended. Without doubt his knowledge and expertise in the H&S field is unquestionable. His way of teaching the subject was one of encouragement and captivation and his experiences in the world of H&S made the subject more realistic and understandable.” Paul Haytree LCGI, HSE Business Partner, ISS Facility Services UK


Will Taylor is one of the best trainers I have seen in almost 40 years of working.” Paul Sexton, Group HSE Co-ordinator, Fenner Plc.
