SAFETY ASSESSMENTS

 

Dweck Data do safety assessments (2013 COMPLIANT) but to be fair there are many others that will perform the same service. How many other web sites advertise for their competitors? We cost about £150 -175 per assessment but can be exceedingly busy and turn you away!

 

We have been informed by a number of clients that competition charges are higher than Dweck Data, but you should contact them to check latest prices/deals.

We do have a higher purpose as a company and I would like to tell you about The National Home Safety Week and The Knights of Safety. We are sponsoring and launching The National Home Safety Week (NHSW) in Blackpool on the 20th September. Our objective is to ensure that every child in the country under 7 receives a Safety Pack from the teachers and gives the pack to their parents.  We are asking business to take the pledge that they will sponsor safety packs. The pack contains a book we are launching that goes through the house room by room and they have a week to finish off the jobs they need to do in order to make children more safe in the home. We are asking people or business to take the Pledge and sponsor the packs for the schools.”
