We have engaged the services of Stallard Kane Associates for over six years now.
Their knowledge, application and professionalism is second to none. Having them on
board for both health and safety and employment law advice and guidance gives us
peace of mind, knowing that we are doing the right thing, and they help to not only
protect our business, but also our employees. We can confidently ask for guidance
on any employment or H&S aspect at any time, and their prompt reply is like having
someone in the next office working with us and not for us.
Ken Wood and Sons Construction Limited
Stallard Kane have been invaluable in providing us with professional advice and
guidance throughout our company health and safety reorganisation, and assisting us
with obtaining our Safe Contractor and CHAS accreditation.
All their members of staff have been exceedingly quick to respond to our enquiries
throughout this process. We would not hesitate in recommending them.
RLH Developments Limited
Stallard Kane have worked with Cover Structure for many, many years, both on
HR and health and safety. We are a very busy company and many, many times have asked
SKA for their help and advice at a moment’s notice. They have never failed to deliver
with a smile on their face.
With regards to health and safety, the site audits they carry out for us work really well in
keeping us and our clients focused on our responsibilities regarding health and safety.
For the last four years, CSL have been accredited with Achilles Building Confidence and
take great comfort in knowing that SKA will be by our side on audit day. The annual visits
to our premises in Leeds again are beneficial, and we embrace the advice given by both
HR and health and safety representatives from SKA.
Our health and safety consultant from Stallard Kane Associates Ltd is like another
member of our team – he is always easy to contact and quick to respond.
Stallard Kane continues to provide us with a first class service – health and safety is critical
to our business and, because we work with Stallard Kane, we know we are compliant and
our health and safety exceeds the rigorous standards expected in our industry.
Rose Plant Hire Ltd
Just a quick note to say how wonderful Richard has been since becoming our HR consultant at Young Black. His knowledge and patience has been outstanding and he is always happy to chat and give advice (even when some of our questions are probably daft)! He is a very personable guy and although he has, I’m sure, been extremely busy during these strange times, he is never too busy to help and provide guidance in what has also been a busy time for ourselves.
Young Black IS Ltd
I wanted to drop you a line to say just how much of a pleasure it has been to have Steve on site this past fortnight (and also, of course, his colleagues during the earlier phase). He’s been incredibly efficient, understanding of our operational procedures etc. and a thoroughly nice chap. Please do forward this as necessary to higher up in your organisation, as I’d like his efforts and hard work to be recognised. From a very large list, and a difficult project to plan, I believe we were
almost exactly on target with circa 5,000 items. We now know that we’re all up to date for PAT across our three buildings up to the end of the year – this has been a vital component of both being ready to reopen after
lockdown, and also as we prepare to bring students back in September.
Facilities and Technical Manager at a University
In this strange time we are all experiencing at the moment the help from Richard on the Phone in Employment Law and Steve in Health and Safety, along with Dawn today on Live Chat has been invaluable. Would not want to try and get through COVID-19 without them.

part of our organisation.

NGA Mechanical Services Ltd
Stallard Kane offer an excellent service. They are prompt and very knowledgeable. We have been working with them for several years and we have always had excellent guidance. Vanliners would highly recommend Stallard Kane for all HR, Employment Law and H&S services.
I found the mental health first aid course a great tool to use in the
workplace. It has meant that the company can support staff, not only with physical first aid but their mental first aid as well, which is just as important. We have seen first-hand the effects that mental health issues can have on staff, and us being able to support them has meant not only have we been able to retain our skilled staff, whom we have invested time and money into, but we have given them the ability to stay in work during a difficult time.
We believe that as an employer, we are responsible for our employees’ health and wellbeing, and supporting them through a difficult time is part of our duties. We have seen a huge improvement with absences, quality of work and the overall attitude of our staff since being able to offer them the support they need. Overall, the course has been a great asset to the business and I would highly recommend any company undertake it to help improve their employee engagement.
We have just had our first audit. Claudia came to our premises and went through everything, explaining everything thoroughly. We used the services late last year when we had a serious matter with an employee. Claudia was straight on the phone and took control of the situation and guided us, step by step. We highly recommend Stallard Kane.
Stewart R Cunninghams
Matt has been extremely helpful in all issues – his response on any enquiries or issue has always been prompt, and he has always been helpful. We have, as a company, come on in leaps and bounds with our health and safety and this is through the help and guidance of Stallard Kane’s team.
Stallard Kane are a friendly family run business who have provided sound, accurate and professional advice to our business regarding all aspects of Health & Safety matters for a number of years now, and whenever we have a query they are very quick to respond with all the necessary information. Our employees have attended numerous training courses provided by the Stallard Kane Training Team and they have always received a first class service. Faye and the team will go above and beyond to advise on each of the training courses provided.

We had no idea where to start with health and safety, but Steve made everything clear to us. Thanks for everything – all sorted now!
Hyde Park Social Club
Lee always responds quickly to any problems we have. He’s always very helpful with anything we ask him.
When we have a situation that we don’t understand and don’t know what to do, we are able to get in touch with Claudia and always get a quick response with the advice we require.
TAG Systems Ltd
Matt is a good advisor who understands my company’s requirements well and is always happy to assist me when anything is required.
Brigg Haulage Ltd
Guaranteed answers and great knowledge from Richard. It’s good to have cover to ensure outcomes.

Ben is held in high regard and we appreciate his advice and guidance. He is, without doubt, a huge asset to Stallard Kane.
IDG Communications Ltd
Steve is a real nice guy and really helpful, and boosts me with confidence moving forward with my health and safety at work, so thank you.
We initially just wanted some support with disciplinary issues, but after a visit, we signed up – Ben and his team were then called upon to support, and have been excellent.
Bourne Road Garage
Having a single point of contact is extremely important. Previous companies would provide conflicting advice as so many different people were involved.
Scott Care Ltd
David has worked with us for several years and has made significant progress with us. We had used previous consultants who worked from a distance, appeared once a year for the annual audit, and produced mountains of unused and unread generic paperwork. David has a much more pragmatic and hands on approach. We have over fifty members of staff and he not only knows their names, but has worked out their characters. That last part is important, because he knows how to get them to respond, and raise their own concerns to him. He has also targeted my managers, who previously felt H&S wasn’t their problem. With group meetings and open two way discussions, he has changed their attitudes and, ultimately, the company’s culture. Spending several days on site every month has been key to his success. He is free to go around and watch what we do and how we do it. He will talk to staff and engage them in the process, then sit down with myself or my managers to improve the safety aspects of what we are doing. The regularity of his visits also puts a discipline into our business. He will have highlighted a couple of areas that need addressing and will expect them to be done prior to his next visit. This has also worked well. It’s like painting the Forth Bridge – you will never have a complete policy, but our staff are in a much safer working environment, as are we as business owners. The key element is that a business owner or manager wants to make that H&S culture change, if they do, then David (Stallard Kane) will facilitate that change very effectively.
Heal Farms Ltd
We have been using Stallard Kane since 2012 for our HR and
Employment Law advice and management assistance. We also use them to help manage our health and safety at work. I have always found them to be friendly, expert, accessible, practical, up to date, purveyors of “real world” advice and they have always gone “the extra mile” for our business. They are very much part of the team and an indispensable part of the business. We have been approached by other “me too’s” trying to take the
business, but we’ve stayed with SK – sometimes you instinctively know when you are onto a good thing! I would highly recommend them.
Harvey Environmental Services
I cannot praise Stallard Kane enough for all their help and support over the last 10 years plus, for both Health and Safety and HR more recently. The consultants take the time to get to know the business – I have built a great relationship with Paul Kent and more recently Claudia Williams – they are always there for us at the drop of a hat – it is great to know we always have proper support and we really feel like they’re one of the team.
I just want to pass on my thanks to you for the way the session was organised and run, for the consideration which Guy had clearly put into being able to run a face-to-face course during COVID, as well as the content
of the course itself – which we thought was interesting and very well delivered. We all came away feeling that it had been an extremely useful course to go on.
TG Sowerby Developments Ltd
Chris our advisor is so helpful, patient and always pleasant to speak to, His knowledge is amazing and puts you at ease over complex issues, nothing ever seems too much trouble. If he is on the phone when I ring he always calls you back straight away. He takes the panic away from HR procedures and is a great sounding board if you just want to check something out.
Vivien Dyer, Concept Group (Wigan) Ltd
The support we receive from Stallard Kane is always exceptional. For a small business, it is a huge relief to know that support and guidance is always there to ensure we are up to date and compliant with all aspects of Employment Law.
Hardcase International Ltd
Stallard Kane are great to work with. No matter which department you need (HR, Health & Safety or Training) someone is always available to give you comprehensive help and advice on what you require. Even if my advisor is in a meeting or on annual leave, a colleague of theirs will help. Cannot recommend Stallard Kane highly enough!
Claudia was brilliant! So patient, friendly and clear in her explanation of things. She also sent through the follow-up email impressively quick!
London Youth Rowing
I had need for some concise HR advice and quick. An issue had arisen with a team member and I was not sure what the situation was and how best to handle the matter correctly. I sent an email to the Business Shield Address and was promptly called by Ben in the HR team. He listened to the problem, asked some pertinent questions and then provided my options. He availed me to the “language” and wording that should be used to ensure the impact was made, and also offered to support me through the process if needed, going forward. I have just had the meeting with my team member and, having taken Ben’s advice, I was able to deal with this tricky matter in a caring but firm manner, meaning the situation is now clarified allowing us to move forward, clear on each other’s expectations and avoiding future issues. A huge thank you to Stallard Kane Associates for this great service – and I know they will be my first choice moving forward if I need them again for any other HR matters.
PCA Business Shield member
We have been working with Stallard Kane for three years now, during this time they have been extremely helpful, knowledgeable and accessible – it is without a doubt the reason we have come so far in getting our Health and Safety to a very high standard and being awarded the HAE EHA SafeHire certification.
Stuart Slaughter – Plato Catering Hire
Having worked with Stallard Kane for about 18 months now, we have complete confidence in them and the advice they give us. These guys know their stuff and help make sure we know it too!
