Mentrau Bach was set up as a consultancy with an aim to make a difference. This difference is aimed at Outdoor Recreation and associated leisure industries, but also with a focus in Wales.
Over the last 4 years, Mentrau Bach has undertaken a wide variety of projects, from strategic review, to project delivery. However, has also focused on identifying where we need to offer more skills to the areas we are passionate about.
One area that Ashley has direct experience in has been the Health and Safety support services, with an expert knowledge of the outdoor sector that is currently available, particularly in North Wales.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) are the oldest, and most established safety experts and Ashley is very proud to be contributing to a number of areas. Ashley has been an Associate Consultant to RoSPA within the Water and Leisure Safety Department for the last three years and continues with them. Within this role, Ashley has visited and offered advice to a wide number of organisations and sectors (over 50 site visits and the same again on desktop reviews). Ashley has also delivered a number of training sessions for RoSPA.
The Institute of Occupational Safety & Health is the world's leading professional body for people responsible for safety and health in the workplace. Earlier this month, Ashley has been accepted as a Technical Member of IOSH. This along with being a qualified Mountain Leader, Yachtmaster, and Associate Fellow of the Royal Institute of Navigation, places Ashley in a unique position.
Because at a philanthropic level Ashley believes that RoSPA offers, as a charity, a huge benefit to the public as well as the organisations with membership, the majority of work Ashley will do in this area will continue to be through RoSPA.
However, pragmatically there are services and training within Health and Safety that Mentrau Bach can provide that may be of interest to smaller organisations in North Wales particularly.
Ashley is more than happy to discuss these needs, and help advise the best way to provide a solution. Contact Ashley on firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
Mentrau Bach continues to provide the consultancy services we always have, and indeed we are looking at how we continue to expand our offer.
We look forward to working with you.
