Our Team

Lee Hewis

Managing Director and Mental Health in the Workplace trainer.

I have worked in Health & Safety since 1997 with major retailers and restaurant chains. During this time I achieved a childhood ambition to drive Double Decker buses and have held a coach driver’s licence since 1997.

I currently work as a volunteer with Yorkshire Ambulance Service as a Community First Responder where I attend 999 calls on behalf of the Ambulance service providing initial medical support to potentially seriously ill patients.

As a company we pride ourselves on our professional approach and the ability of our instructors to learn new skills enabling us to deliver a wider range of training in a fast moving training environment.

On 12th July 2019 our company will be providing a free Emergency First Aid Course for a charity that works with Ex-Service personnel.

We have also donated First Aid Kits to schools in Kenya.
