HSQE Ltd was incorporated in 2002 by our Director and Principal Consultant, John Constable. John is a Chartered Safety and Health Practitioner (CMIOSH); Chartered Quality Professional (MCQI CQP); Chartered Environmentalist (MIEMA CEnv); Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute (FCMI); and is on the Occupational Safety and Health Consultant’s Register (OSHCR).
HSQE Ltd’s first major contract was to provide consultancy and training support for Network Rail (High Speed 1), as they took over the operation and maintenance of the UKs first international high speed railway. During that time we facilitated the risk assessment that demonstrated the Eurostar run from Paris to London, at speeds up to 334.7 km/h, was safe from a railway infrastructure and railway operations perspective – the exercise culminated in a Eurostar breaking the UK rail speed record in 2007. We facilitated the ‘acceptance into use’ of approximately 90 rail vehicles and 250 rail-related products on to high speed railway infrastructure. We also facilitated the Construction Design and Management (CDM) aspects of the hand over of St Pancras international station following its £800m refurbishment.
We have gone on to provide strategic health, safety, quality and environmental (HSQE) solutions for a wide range of organisations within high risk industries, both in the UK and abroad.
In 2016 we continued our growth by developing our online training capability, to satisfy the need for approved training courses in vital skills at an affordable price.
