What Our Clients Say
Macmillan Cancer Support
Emma has been working with Macmillan since September 2011. The organisation decided a focus on premises fire and safety was required and we looked for a reputable company to carry out Fire Risk Assessments on each of our premises.
Macmillan had no hesitation in appointing Emma as she came highly recommended to our organisation. Emma’s hands-on experience of driving change whilst understanding the business needs helped persuade us that she was the right person for the job.
It proved to be an inspired decision. Macmillan employs staff who are compassionate, focussed and driven. Some feared the fire risk assessment may ‘get in the way’ of all the good work we do. Emma recognised immediately where our strengths and weaknesses lay and with tact and diplomacy, managed the project with great skill and aplomb.
Macmillan has benefitted enormously from Emma’s input. The risks we manage and the potential damage to our premises and reputation have been dramatically reduced with the future looking much safer.
It is clear Emma has a wealth of experience to call on and is passionate about helping others to improve, no matter what the starting point, but as important has been her ability to draw up recommendations and requirements to the needs of each individual building, identifying the barriers to success, and being able to communicate this to all levels of the organisation - a rare gift.
Emma is gently persuasive, using logic and sound reasoning to get the point across to what can sometimes be a resistant audience.
I would have no hesitation in recommending either Emma or Ewing Consultancy to any company seeking an improvement in their health and safety performance or a culture change programme.

Toni & Guy UK Training Ltd
“Ewing Consultancy has become one of our leading work partners here at Toni & Guy UK training Ltd. It initially started out in conjunction with a Learning and Skills Council health and safety audit that Emma was carrying out on their behalf.
This was extremely informative and supportive , the whole approach to the audit was very professional but for us it was Emma whose personable attitude then encouraged us to want to work with Ewing Consultancy further.
We have undertaken IOSH Managing Safely courses with a 100% pass rate, bespoke health and safety courses for all our staff ( this is ongoing with all new staff ) and a full Company audit when we went from a local LSC contract to a National contract.
The communication is excellent and all the staff involved in the training speaks of Ewing Consultancy in high regard, the approach to training is fun yet informative and the level of support during and after the event is exceptional.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Ewing Consultancy if you are looking for an enterprising , flexible and helpful company to work with .”
Sarah Brockbank - National Training Manager
Marie Curie Cancer Care
"From my experience, Emma is always organised and reliable with her approach, and listens to my training needs before she designs a bespoke training package that fits with my workforce.
Her presentations are always professional and she involves and interacts with the trainees to ensure they get the most out of the training and come away with knowledge they can use in real world scenarios in the workplace.
I have no hesitation in recommending Ewing Consultancy for any training service needs you may have."

Marie Curie Cancer Care
“Following a recommendation from our H&S Manager, Emma carried out over 200 Display Screen Equipment (DSE) assessments at the Marie Curie head offices in London.
From the beginning, Emma was incredibly helpful in explaining what she would need and was always at the end of the phone to assist with any queries I had. Over the four weeks Emma spent at head office, she was always polite and courteous – it was a real pleasure to have her as part of our team and she worked incredibly hard to give each person a personalised assessment even though there were so many people to get through.
The service Emma provided throughout the process was outstanding and the summary report Emma produced at the end was very informative. I wish Emma could come back and do our DSE assessments all the time”!

Bright Willis - Property Management and Lettings
'We have been using Ewing Consultancy for approximately two years now to carry out Health & Safety and Fire Risk Assessments at the residential blocks of flats that we manage.
From the start we have found our nominated consultant, Emma, very friendly and approachable. She is always at the end of a phone or computer to assist us in any queries we have.
The comprehensive reports produced are very clearly laid out and the incorporated action plans are of great help to ensure we achieve the compliance levels required at each development.
We would not hesitate in recommending Ewing Consultancy to any other companies looking for a professional but friendly service with regards to Health & Safety.'
Adam Davies MARLA
Carere Support Services
“Emma was recommended to Carers Support Service, and she more than met our expectations. Emma was professional and friendly in her dealings with all our staff. It was a pleasure to work with a Health and Safety Consultant who works with you to achieve compliance, rather than beating you over the head with the usual health and safety stick. We look forward to working with Emma again”
Liz Tucker -Interim Chief Executive
The Learn2 Group
“It is not often that you may hear of Health and Safety training being delivered 'creatively'?! But that is exactly what Emma from Ewing Consultancy has done for my Clients on multiple occassions! Emma has a unique ability to deliver important information in an engaging and kinaesthetic way. I have had the pleasure of observing Emma deliver a number of courses using visual cues, video supplements and interactive tools. Emma's personable teaching style means that delegates interact without feeling pressured (or falling asleep!). I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Emma and Ewing Consultancy for delivery of bespoke and accredited Health and Safety certificated courses.”
Becki Coombe - Managing Director
"Emma provided a talk on health and safety to a class of students of mine and did a first rate job.Emma was professional and friendly and explained in plain English how the various health and safety regulations impact on a business.
I would have no hesitation in using Emma again or in recommending her to my clients."
Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) following a Validation Visit
‘A very personable yet professional training style with a good pace and speed of delivery. An excellent rapport had been established with the delegates by the introduction of humour during the session, with the formation of two groups offering some fun and competitiveness!
You had a good understanding of their working backgrounds and linked this well to the training to give them a greater understanding of the subject matter with very clear, jargon free explanations. In all, you are to be congratulated for creating a lively and positive learning environment.
This course was delivered in a proficient manner and was exceptionally well prepared. It certainly did meet the professional standard expected by IOSH and I would add that I very much enjoyed the session I observed’.
Health and Safety Training Verifier
Ewing Consultancy assisted us with an occupational health risk assessment and we found them to be both professional and friendly throughout there visit.
Being new to OH services we were unsure what to expect, however Emma made the process very easy by assisting us both (the employer) and the employee step by step.
During the assessment she met and talked with colleagues in-depth and we were impressed with how quickly she understood the issues and built rapport with the employees.
We were very happy with the written report received, which clearly identified the concerns (both from the employer’s perspective and the employee’s) and suggested ways to resolve these together.
We would certainly recommend Ewing Consultancy to any other company looking for H&S / OH advice.
