Based in Cornwall but operating on a national and international level, In Safe Hands Health & Safety Training and Consultancy Ltd, prides itself on its immersive and simulative approach to safety training and is now working with the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK), to deliver the Charity’s water safety consultancy services and training.

Their purpose-built, cutting-edge simulation facility in Cornwall means trainees benefit from practical, real-life scenarios on which to hone their new-found skills and build the confidence to use them in emergency situations.

Specialising in health and safety, first aid, manual handling and first response emergency care (FREC), In Safe Hands also offer lifesaving skills training in water safety for everyone, including children as young as eight-years-old.

The brainchild of Tim and Liz Puffer, In Safe Hands is a family-run business that started in their spare room:

“The business has really taken off in ways we never expected,” says Tim.

“We pride ourselves on offering a first-class experience from the very first contact right the way through to course end and project completion.

“My own extensive background in water safety advice and training has put us on the front foot in offering organisations risk assessment, mitigation and operational planning, for a wide variety of satisfied clients.

“We have always been big exponents of the Royal Life Saving Society UK, their values, aims and ambitions. It’s a real coup for us to be able to take this relationship forward on a stronger footing, working together to keep people safe around water.”

With a steady increase in demand for the expertise of the RLSS UK, augmenting their consultancy services with a ready advocate of their work and values like In Safe Hands, makes perfect sense:

“RLSS UK is the UK’s leading provider of water safety education and training - as demand grows for our advice and expertise, we need a partner that mirrors our own dedication to keeping people safe,” says Helen Bowker, RLSS UK’s Commercial Manager.

“In Safe Hands is perfectly placed to support our work with local authorities, construction companies, leisure operators and private landowners, as they seek to secure their assets for the benefit of everyone.’’

“The appointment of In Safe Hands means RLSS UK can extend its reach as a training provider and authority on water safety, enhancing our offering to anyone with liabilities to visitors and staff around water.’’

“We are looking forward to working with Tim and the team into 2020 and beyond.”
