… the course was were extremely informative and presented in a manner that made what can be a dry subject interesting and relevant to all course participants. [The instructor’s] … vast knowledge of the subject matter was clearly evident when he shared with the class his real life experiences, interesting case studies and historical background information on health and safety related matters. This made the course more relevant to the participants and showed them how they can incorporate this knowledge to their present and future activities… Job well done.

Thanks for the report, it was prepared well. One of the important things moving forward is the flexibility of a contractor and to deliver results timely and as promised. I am pleased with the work and response from REA.

Health & Safety Specialist

I have valued your presence during this project... Our record, of no incidents/accidents has proven your professionalism in handling... any situation. Seldom have I seen the respect REA earned from the contractors. I am certain that when the opportunity arises, TWD will call upon REA ...

Construction Manager
TWD EPCM

Good work... as usual your reports are thorough, easy to follow...(and) tell people what to do - a lot of pre-start health and safety reviews done by your competitors do not.
That is why I like working with you...

Manufacturing Manager

I found the session of great value... Despite many years working in large companies with relatively sophisticated HSSE processes, I learnt a great deal. The multi-media and participative format worked very well... Jane is a first rate presenter with very good empathy with the participants. I ... have already told my HSSE training people how impressed I was.

Duncan Macleod

Your courses are amazing. I got so much more than any of IAPA training I have been in ever. Mark is amazing. I think I am going to look into more of REA's training from now on for my CRSP maintenance points instead.

... I would like to thank you for the material you presented in the two day Construction Project Safety Management workshop - it has given me the opportunity to look at in detail some of our current practises and approaches to construction project safety. The material was presented in a very useful and practical way. Thanks again!

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the OHS Predevelopment Review course yesterday. It was very nice meeting (your people) as well! Your company has some great trainers - something I find missing at a lot of courses I go to. A lot of people know theories but they don't know how to apply them... I will look forward to other courses with REA in the future. Thanks again.

Leslie Creek, CRSP
Krug Furniture

I just wanted to drop a short note to thank you for such an informative Joint Health and Safety Committee (16 Hour Basic Certification) course... I've participated in many courses, on many topics, and found this was a highly informative and thought-provoking course. The instructor's added intelligence, experience and sense of humour is certainly a pleasant change from the common monotony of many standard lesson plans and instructors. I won't hesitate to recommend this course in the future. Best of luck with your endeavours...
