Our Story

Over many years of working around the world, in a vast array of industries, businesses and environments, we noticed common themes running through nearly every workplace – ineffective communication, lack of trust & respect, and poor leadership skills.  The result was often accidents, poor wellbeing, physical and mental distress, job dissatisfaction and ultimately stagnant business growth with limited resilience.

Yet other workplaces shone out as a way to do things differently, where we saw inspiring leadership and workplace cultures of trust and respect, of thriving and innovative business.

We recognized they focused on three critical areas:

  • Safety
  • Education
  • Wellbeing

We believe all workplaces can be like this. that through a focus on developing inspirational leadership and taking a more people-centred approach business can transform themselves and be more adaptable to future challenges and change.

Using the most appropriate and practical approach to your safety needs whilst seeking to incorporate the essential element of psychological safety in the workplace we offer a range of solutions to help your people and your business to grow.

We work with you to develop a tailored solution to meet your unique needs, to help your people and your business grow and reach their potential.

Everyone has the right to live and work free from harm. We believe that people are the solution, not the problem.

Susanne has worked in the UK and Australia supporting people to achieve better mental wellbeing so they can navigate life’s ups and downs and have a better quality of life.

She has experienced many work environments where people thrived, but many more where people did not feel psychologically safe; significantly impacting people’s mental health. The mental distress we experience in the workplace does not stay at work – we take it home. Where it affects our relationships, our family and every other aspect of our life.

1 in 2 people will suffer a period of poor mental health during their lifetime. The impact to the individual can be huge. The  cost to employers can be substantial too; through loss of productivity and high levels of sickness absence.

We all go through difficulties at some point in our lives and getting the right support at the right time is key to better outcomes for everyone, not just for the individual.  Supporting individuals and employers to establish and maintain a psychologically safe workplace is vital for a healthy life, and a healthy workplace, where both individuals and businesses thrive.

Susanne believes a psychologically safe workplace is paramount to our overall quality of life.


John is a genuine thought leader on safety. 

His approach is both human and pragmatic and as such it’s one that will make an enormous difference to people’s lives and wellbeing. 

I’ve had and have the pleasure of working closely with John and he’s a joy to watch in action.

Working with John was a pleasure, he has a great wealth of knowledge and his dedication, care and enthusiasm is infectious.

John can make you excited about the positive changes safety and safety differently can bring to you and your company.
John is the most authentic safety leader I had pleasure working with.
Working with John is always a positive challenge!

His approach is not “traditional” but is absolutely effective.

He has been on the tools in many places around the world, and so knows how we can best support the frontline teams in high risk industries.
