About us

We enable you to manage your risk by developing your people!
Why Solutions?

A successful business, established in 1994 by Paul Meek a former Operations Director of an ambulance service. Throughout Paul's career, he was exposed daily to the consequences of poorly managed risks, and this is what spurred Paul to establish Solutions Training, he wanted to bridge the visible but avoidable gaps in risk management and in particular health & safety education and the development of the equipment used to aid safer transportation of people.

Our team are all members of the “National Back Exchange” and have been contributors to various working groups on developing good practice since 1995.

We are proud to say that we have also been contributors to research into “what constitutes effective moving and handling training” performed by the Ergonomics Department at Loughborough University and in partnership developed topic-related awards at Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4 which are on the regulated qualifications framework.

Being at the forefront of its specialist subjects we have designed and manufactured specialist manual handling equipment to aid moving and handling tasks, including our unique bariatric carry sheet used by ambulance trusts UK Wide, click here to view our website  -

We had a need to train 43 of our staff on safe pupil moving and handling methods. Our team undertook Solutions online People Moving People course which is extremely specific to the Special School environment which was great for learner motivation and retention of information learnt, we found the E-Learning to be a flexible and cost-effective way to train! The feedback from our team was exceptional and on completion of the course Solutions require the learner to provide feedback across 16 dimensions, 98% said that the training and content was extremely relevant and applicable to their roles and 93% rated the overall course as good or above. The overall feedback was rated 91% as good or above.

We asked Solutions to assist us by providing training to a small group of our staff who required hoist training, most of which had not participated in this type of training before. We completed all the theory on how to move and handle pupils in a manner that is safe and dignified by completing the sector specific online People Moving People course which was hugely valuable and reduced the need for classroom training. We found that online training reduced our overall training costs and the need for contact training. On completion of the course, the staff attended a short practical workshop to learn the practical skills of hoisting. On completion of the course, all that attended the training felt confident and competent on how to apply the skills learnt in a wide range of circumstances within their roles. We found this blended method of training greatly beneficial and cost effective.

My team at SECAMB required our moving and handling for the ambulance community updated, the on-line Moving People course provided by Solutions Training and Advisory Limited enabled us to do that quickly and easily. The process involved many new staff spread out over several weeks which the Solutions training team set up extremely quickly, even over weekends and during the May Bank Holidays. Training in this manor had major benefits including avoiding travel by our staff during the period of lockdown and reduced face to face contact. We received weekly updates on student progress and detailed anonymously obtained feedback received from the staff which was extremely positive, giving us the ability to reach out to students requiring any help. Overall, the level of support we have received from the Solutions training team has been excellent.
