    Even if you have received a (green) Good CQC rating, unfortunately, things can still go wrong

    Get the right advice and guidance with regular visits from your Health and safety adviser, not gust templated documents and once a year visit.

    Take a look at our testimonials


    Testimonial from Lesley Saunders, Care Manager:

    We found Acton Services after attending a workshop they ran, the workshop was really informative, interactive and enjoyable. After attending the workshop we decided to ask Jim Smith and Martin Griffiths to attend our Care Home to discuss further the services they provide. Following this, we decided to use their services and we haven't regretted it. Their experience and support has been invaluable in supporting the home and all the staff. Staff are now not as intimidated by CQC processes and have a better understanding of it which has their confidence and in turn improved the service we offer. I would recommend anyone thinking of employing the services of Jim and Martin to just go for it , we haven't regretted it.

    Testimonial from Ailsa Wright, General Manager:

    The work that Martin Griffiths & Jim Smith has done for Abbeyfield has made a significant difference. Martin has been the Health & Safety Consultant at our Care Home for 3 months and in that short time has proved invaluable to us by taking control of our Health & Safety procedures and bringing them up to date. Our staff and management are now fully trained in procedures in case of a fire emergency. This was conducted professionally and was of a high standard. I would recommend Acton Health and Safety and Fire Safety. Nothing is too much trouble, very efficient and fast to find a solution to a problem.


    Testimonial from Manager of a care home, I have found Martins input professional and invaluable.

    Manager Debra Mahon


    Martin Griffiths has been the Fire and Health and Safety advisor for our care home for the past twelve months, during this time he has been invaluable in his contributions to ensuring the health and safety of staff and residents, produced documents which have highlighted certain areas of concern, produced action plans and advised Directors and management regarding addressing areas of concern with budgets in mind.

    This has all contributed greatly towards ensuring that CQC, fire safety, and safeguarding legislation has been fully met.

    I have found his Fire safety training to be to a high standard and he has ensured that all staff and management are fully trained in procedures in the case of a fire emergency.
