    Harry was brilliant, we have had our staff trained by Shepherds for as long as I can remember. They are really thorough and have lots of patience for individuals being trained. Highly recommend!

    We are so pleased that we found Shepherds Health & Safety. Kev’s knowledge together with the instructor’s helped us no end in meeting our training requirements. Shepherds H & S offers exceptional value for money and we will definitely use them again in the future.
