What Our Clients Say
“Having used Engage Safety for the first time this year, it was clear from the staff feedback that we would look to use Martin’s services again. His past experiences and knowledge of working and engaging with staff in both an operational and decommissioning environment resonated perfectly with the site team. Martin is very professional, engaging and enthusiastic to help tailor his services to meet your needs. Above all he has the skills and personality to get staff to Engage Safely.”
Decommissioning Project Manager, Scottish & Southern Energy
Ferrybridge Power Station
“Martin is a very experienced and knowledgeable safety professional whom I had the opportunity to work with on a large CCGT replant project in the UK.
His common sense approach coupled with a unique ability to engage appropriately with individual craft labour through to senior management was a key factor in moulding a positive safety culture on site.
Issues were always viewed as opportunities and I would highly recommend Martin as a safety professional. He brings a lot more than vast experience and a wealth of knowledge to a team, he is also equipped with an infectious enthusiasm, great sense of humour and his unique energy is guaranteed to inspire the team “to do the right thing”!”

Engineering & Maintenance coordinator at RWE
“Engage Safety, ‘does what it says on the tin’.
Martin really does engage at all levels. We experienced this first hand when he presented the ‘Eye on the Ball’ training package at Ferrybridge.
I have no doubt that Martins ‘no-nonsense’ approach helped to captivate every member of staff who attended. This was proven by the fact that we received some of the best ever collective feedback comments of any course held at Ferrybridge.
I would highly recommend using Martin – he provided us with a great service, which was tailored to suit our needs!”
Technical Author (Process Safety) Ferrybridge Power Station
“In the time I have spent working with Martin, both in General Safety but primarily delivering Behavioural Safety Workshops, I have been struck by his ability to work and engage with people, a skill that should not be overlooked or taken “as read”. Extremely knowledgeable in both safety and power generation, Martin stands out for his ability to engage with whomever he meets. Cufflinks to coal face, he delivers!”
Safety Advisor/Engineer at Aberthaw Power Station
“We began working with Martin in 2012, on a health and safety initiative that spanned a leading power company’s UK sites. It was clear from the beginning that Martin was passionate about improving the health and safety of working conditions for everyone at these sites. However, Martin isn’t a ‘jobsworth’ when it comes to health and safety, just following the rules for the sake of following the rules.
Quite the contrary! Martin is keen to develop solutions that actually work, rather than just tick boxes. He explores all the issues behind what make health and safety practices effective – the psychological inputs, the practical aspects, the solutions that make sense for the business as well as the individual.
Above all, Martin is a great communicator. He was an engaging and natural presenter in the health and safety films we made with him. We also witnessed his day-to-day interactions with colleagues and contractors. He conveyed his health and safety messages with authority and respect for the individual, clearly establishing an easy rapport with everyone on site, regardless of their role.
AON Productions looks forward to working with Martin in the future!”
