“As Health and Safety Manager for the Company, I worked very closely with Kevin from Halo SQE over a period of 18 months to improve both fire and asset protection at one our primary Devon locations. Throughout this period, Kevin was a great support and driving force to implement the required improvements and changes. Kevin communicated and worked closely with all levels of staff at the depot and we completed the required changes quickly and very successfully.”

“I would happily recommend Halo SQE and look forward to working with Kevin again in the future.”
