About Shires Safety

We are a well - established health, safety and environmental consultancy practice that has been assisting businesses comply with the ever increasing myriad of safety and environmental legislation since 2000.

The practice is headed up by our principal consultant John Mc Guinness who after a long career at sea, and ashore with the world’s two largest oil companies consolidated his “hands on” experience with academic qualifications including a Masters’ Degree in Health and Safety Law and Environmental Law, NTU Diploma in Safety, Health and Environmental Management, NEBOSH and other professional qualifications.

Each of our consultants is academically qualified (by examination) to at least Degree level in Health and Safety & Environmental Management. We are very much “hands on” with extensive exposure to the real time day to day issues. Moreover, each consultant is a Chartered Member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (CMIOSH). We are also members of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM) and the Health and Safety Lawyers Association (HSLA). In addition, each of our consultants holds valid CSCS White or Black Cards and CCNSG Safety Passport thus allowing entrance and to work on all major construction sites.

Our growth is primarily driven by repeat commissions from existing clients, demonstrating their level of confidence in our ability to deliver tangible and cost effective solutions to their health and safety matters.

Our consultants are all “hands on” meaning that they have progressed through their respective industry over many years. Such practical exposure (coupled with at least 5 years PQE in Health and Safety) has provided each consultant with an acute awareness of the often complex safety issues found in the workplace. More importantly, it enables them to provide a reasoned, jargon free and cost effective solution to safety issues.

We carry fully comprehensive Professional Indemnity Insurance to £2 million.

We are of course eager to grow our client list concentrating on our core sectors and expertise.

With no additional products or services to promote, our sound and impartial advice will be a cost effective solution to your compliance management requirements.
