About Us

Northern Bear Safety Ltd is a health and safety consultancy, dedicated to providing clients with the best possible support for all health, safety and environmental matters.

Our consultants are all chartered safety professionals, who are able to help businesses meet their legal obligations by providing health and safety training, advice and support.

We have a growing reputation for only providing clients with what they actually need, in a simple no nonsense style. We don’t believe in safety for the sake of it, and only concentrate on the issues that are relevant to a client’s business.

We provide a range of services, from the creation of bespoke safety management systems and risk assessments, through to training in subjects such as asbestos awareness and working at height. We have also helped a number of clients in achieving CHAS accreditation, as well as other accreditation schemes.

We have the ability to work in a number of different environments – e.g. retail, factory and construction so if you need “one off” assistance or longer term support, please contact us today for an informal discussion on your needs.
