Key fact summary

  • Membership provided a measure of credibility especially as it relates to UK health, safety and environment (HSE)
  • Their membership also allows them an opportunity to network with UK companies as it relates to sourcing training and other services from the UK
  • The British Safety Council offers a wide range of training programmes which are well respected and required for most HSE jobs in Trinidad and it’s against this backdrop that they have applied for Centre Approval to offer their qualifications.

Business issue

They regard the British Safety Council as a very knowledgeable and influential body for all HSE matters and their membership allows access to information which can help guide them and their clients on ways to develop HSE in their country. Their company is about continuous improvement and as HSE is dynamic they wanted a way to keep up to date with best practice. They challenged themselves on how they can do things in a safer way and focused on extra ways to mitigate risks.

"Being a member means we are more aware of industry best practices and changes and can guide some of our clients including BG and BP in Trinidad.”
Anthony Vieira, Managing Director, HHSL Safety Systems Limited and the Hummingbird Group.
