Celebrating Workplace Law success

Every day our staff and consultants work hard helping other businesses and each other to achieve excellence in their areas of expertise.  Whether it is improving processes, cutting costs, addressing compliance or embracing sustainability – it is what we all strive for.

We want to celebrate and share the success of those who have achieved high standards; recognising the positive impact it has on colleagues and clients alike.

Peter Watts, Environmental Consultant at Workplace Law, has just become a Full member of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA).  This full membership is a well regarded professional standard of knowledge, understanding and experience in this field.  To become a full member a written application and an interview is required, together with three years of relevant environmental experience.

With this qualification brings evidence of Peter’s valuable skills and experience, his commitment to the code of practice and ethics set by IEMA and for his professionalism towards clients.  While most environmental professionals maintain an Associate membership level, we congratulate Peter in his achievement of the Full membership – a fantastic achievement.

Account Manager at Workplace Law, Ben Clement, recently attended and passed one of our popular courses, the IOSH Directing Safely Certificate.  Ben is accustomed to providing information to our clients regarding the course and is familiar with its content.  He has taken this a step further and completed the one-day course, designed to help company directors understand their responsibilities in health and safety.

Not only did Ben gain the qualification, he achieved 100% in the examination.  There really isn’t anything that he doesn’t know about the course and how it is delivered.

Ben comments:

“I found it really enjoyable to attend, see how well the training is delivered, and get the thoughts of Directors, which aids in selling to other clients.”

Health and Safety Consultant at Workplace Law, Renier Barnard, has over eight years' professional experience.  Already a Chartered Member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and an accredited OHSAS 18001 assessor, Renier recently completed the NEBOSH construction Certificate and passed with distinction.

Ren comments:

“Our tutors are second to none.”

This weekend we participated in our last official charity event of the year – the annual Chariots of Fire relay race in Cambridge, in which a team of six runners underwent a 1.7-mile race around the Colleges and streets of the city. The results have yet to be announced, but the whole team got round in good time.

Workplace Law are proud of these and many more achievements in their own right, but especially because they demonstrate we really do practise what we preach.
