We have used Andy Forbes (AFCC) for a number of years  as our one stop shop for H&S policy advice and staff training.  His response time is short and his advice has always been clear and pragmatic.  Staff training has been tailored to our requirements and provided excellent value for money.  I would recommend Andy to any organisation looking for practical H&S support at the operational level. www.mtsn.org.uk

“Taking AFCC on board has been one of the best decisions we ever made"

I have known Joe Vella, of AFCC, for a very long time. During this time Joe has undertaken a complete review of all our Health & Safety and Food Safety Systems, resulting in a total overhaul and the creation of new manuals and training programmes. In addition, Joe has created a series of bespoke training programmes, oversees all our activities as our Competent Person and has recently guided us through the process of obtaining Primary Authority Status, something that has greatly assisted us in our UK wide operations.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Joe as an excellent and highly professional Food Safety and Health & Safety expert.

Dear Joe, Just a short note to thank you for your hard work, dedication and support for helping us to achieve BRC Certification. I must commend you for your commitment and effort you put into this complex task. We would not have managed to become accredited to BRC Global Standards without your involvement. We wish you all the best and look forward to a continued long and fruitful business relationship.

We have employed the services of Joe Vella of AFCC Ltd to help us achieve ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems & OHSAS 18001 Health & Safety Management Systems as well as the upgrading of ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems and we are very pleased to say that these were achieved within the budget and the time frame allocated.

Joe Vella proved to be very professional in his work ethic and the process was virtually seamless. I will not hesitate to recommend Joe to any business wanting to achieve these and similar standards. Achieving these standards will help ABA Engineering Limited in its continued expansion of the business

Judith visited the BSP in September to give the Early Years team, including teachers, nursery nurses, lunchtime supervisors and the School Nurse a course in the current practice for Paediatric First Aid.

The course was delivered with a delightful blend of professionalism and humour. Judith conveyed the information clearly, giving many practical and anecdotal examples throughout the sessions. The medical information given was clearly explained with the use of terminology at a level of understanding for all involved.

The practical sessions, involving resuscitation and applying bandages to damaged limbs, were demonstrated in a coherent manner. The trainer then allowed the trainees to have hands on experience practicing on dummies as well as each other. During this aspect of the course Judith was very supportive, giving positive feedback throughout.

In order to keep in touch with current practice we shall need a refresher course and BSP will be happy to recruit Judith to provide the training with the confidence that it will be delivered with the same high standards recently experienced.

I would like to show my appreciation for all the hard work of Andrew Forbes of AFCC Ltd, at the City of Bristol College in the capacity of Lead Tutor for our NEBOSH courses including Diploma. Andrew has always worked to ensure that the pass rate for the college remains above the National average. Andrew has shown himself to be thoroughly professional at all times, and an excellent tutor, evidenced also from the feedback we receive from students which has always been highly positive due to his support to them.

Paul Clothier.

City of Bristol College,

I studied Level Three Supervising Food Safety at Ashley Down Centre of Bristol City College. The tutor was Andrew Forbes of AFCC Ltd and the manner in which he delivered the course kept us all interested. This was my first time studying at this level and I achieved the grade which is now helping me further in my line of work.
