Welcome to Wilkins Safety Group

25 years anniversaryTHE WILKINS SAFETY GROUP’s health and safety consultants, based in Somerset, take the worry of dealing with Health & Safety regulations off your hands, leaving you free to concentrate on running your business the way you want to.

We specialise in supporting small businesses that cannot afford to employ a health and safety manager.

In our experience a small firm that does not presently comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974 (HSAW74) is part of the majority of small firms in the UK.

The Wilkins Safety Group work with all kinds of industries and are recognised providers of Health & Safety Training.

The Wilkins Safety Group was established in January 1992 and and has been helping companies with sound advice for over 25 years.

Acting as principal designer, Jon is excellent at making clear the main areas and constraints which the design team has to consider when developing this large scale and complex heating system renewal at Saltram House…

Jon’s quiet overviewing approach provides the freedom for the engineers and cost team to develop their designs whilst Jon overviews and assists where appropriate.

Ken Evans - Project Manager, National Trust

We have used Wilkins with works going on in our Residential Care Homes. Exceptional service. Jon and his team were amazing throughout. Arrived at the start of our project and nothing was a problem, exceeding expectations. Highly recommended. Thanks for all your hard work.

Natalie Town, Cream Care
