First year success story for health and safety consultants

WORDS : DAVE ROBSON PICTURE : CHRIS BOOTH

A

Tees-based health and safety consultancy is set for a bright future after a successful first year .
A & N Safety Consultants was launched in April 2021 . The brainchild of experienced safety consultants , Abigail Allick and Andrea Nicholls , they gelled quickly and realised they had the same work ethic and commitment to clients .
And despite launching in the middle of a pandemic , they haven ’ t looked back .
It was a leap of faith to go it alone but with their commitment , experience and hard work , the first year has been more successful than they could ever have imagined .
Abigail and Andrea ’ s skills and backgrounds complement each other . Abigail has lots of experience working with clients on site , while Andrea ’ s legal background ensures she can advise on compliance and legislation – ensuring they can offer the full range of health and safety services .
Their goal was to create the A & N “ brand ” and offer a different approach to health and safety .
And through teamwork and dedication to detail , they are achieving their goal , with a client base growing daily and a commitment to creating relationships , and working closely , with all their clients .
No two days are the same due to the range of sectors , companies and projects the firm supports – everything from the renewables sector , solar and AD plants to housing , manufacturing , retail , education and local authority work .
And underpinning it all , they say , is their good relationship – and having fun while they do it .
A & N – it stands for Allick and Nicholls – is based in Boho One in Middlesbrough .
They said : “ If we ’ d thought too much For more about A & N and its range of services , visit A & N Safety Consultants ( an-consultants . co . uk )
A & N Consultants ’ directors Abigail Allick and Andrea Nicholls .
about starting our own business , we may have talked ourselves out of it , but it ’ s been great and now we have clients locally and across the country .
“ We have had such amazing feedback from all of our clients and so many recommendations from people we have worked with in the past .”
They have lots of plans for 2022 including developing the training element of their business and looking at bringing an apprentice into the company . But overall , they are always looking for ways they can further support their clients and develop the A & N brand .
“ Watch this space ,” they smile , as they look forward to the future .
