Norwich Based Firm Expand Their Training Reach

Jonathan Reynolds, along with his wife Lauren established Serene Safety 2-years ago. In those two years the company has seen growth across its consultancy and training arms.

‘I’d always aimed to start my own consultancy one day’ says Jonathan, who has been providing training and advice on health, safety and risk for over 15-years.

‘I started small, with only a few hundred pounds, a credit card and the network I had grown over the last 15-years in the industry. When I called round my contacts to tell them that I had started my own business everyone was very supportive, and my first few projects were borne out of the relationships I had made with those people.’

Jonathan continued ‘The name of the business didn’t come about by accident either. I had seen, over the years, that it had been over complicated in areas and viewed as a ‘minefield’ in others therefore I always strived to keep things as proportionate as they could be. That’s why the company has three core values of being simple to do business with, treating our customers business like we would or own and never letting a challenge get the better of us. Keeping people safe and healthy at work isn’t rocket science at the end of the day.

As part of the growth plans for the company Jonathan wanted to include accredited training to what they do, as well as the bespoke aspects a lot of companies want. ‘I opted for the IIRSM Managing Risks: The Essentials and, flagship, IOSH Managing Safely to compliment what we do already. The two bodies that accredit these courses are global institutions so it made absolute sense to offer these.’  We have been running these for the last 12-months with success.

Serene Safety is the only company in East Anglia that offers both IOSH and IIRSM accredited training courses.

‘These really complement each other with Managing Safely focussing on safety and health aspects and the MRE course taking a broader business view on risk – it really balances what we have to offer a range of businesses.

Serene Safety have expanded further by adding the IOSH Working safely passport to the repertoire. ‘This broadens our reach to all members of an organisation so risk can be talked about from grass roots, all the way up to management. Pair that with the work we do with leadership teams and boards on strategy and direction, and we can support all layers of an organisation.’
