A Caerphilly-based consultancy firm has won a health and safety management contract from the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority.
Thomas, Carroll Management Services (TCMS), the health and safety consultancy arm of the Caerphilly-based insurance and financial services company has been awarded a three-year contract by the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority – one of three National Parks in Wales.
The authority has the job of looking after the natural beauty of the park – helping visitors to enjoy and understand it. It also has responsibility for the economic and social wellbeing of local people.
This appointment represents a further high profile success for the division, which has a client portfolio including The Wales Millennium Centre, The National Library of Wales, The National Botanic Garden of Wales and The Celtic Manor Resort.
Under the new contract, TCMS will be assisting the authority in developing and implementing their health and safety management systems and providing a wide range of training courses to approximately 120 employees.
Richard Pask, director of Thomas, Carroll Management Services said: “It is an honour to be providing our services to an organisation tasked with looking after such a beautiful, protected area. We will be acting as mentors to the Authority, backing up their existing resources, enabling them to access the wealth of experience and expertise that we have in dealing with day-to-day health and safety issues.
“The Brecon Beacons represents an exciting professional challenge for us and we will be helping to protect the guardians of this protected landscape – we are looking forward to working closely with the Authority.”
John Cook, chief executive of the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority said: “Unusually for a National Park Authority we own 14% of the land within the Brecon Beacons National Park, and we want to be sure we are following best practice. We are looking forward to learning from and working with Thomas, Carroll Management Services.”
