Providing Support to You and Your Organisation

We work with you to address the key tests of due care.

Focusing on what you should be reasonably expected to know, and do”. Unlike courts and inquests – which ask after the event – we address these tests before a crisis.

Specialising in risk management – especially the crucial areas of business continuity, and emergency planning – we provide research, advice, plans, and the facilitation of reviews, exercises, debriefings, and training.

Our approach has been respected since 1987 for “preventing disasters, or where that is not possible, reducing the potential for harm” Ref: Barrister H Selby Inquest Handbook
