With regards to the awards James Mcpartland has spoken about his delight at being chosen as finalists in two categories.

“We feel privileged to be informed that we have been selected as finalists in not one but two categories in such a prestigious award as the Kilkenny Chamber Business awards 2023.

JM Safety Training was established by myself in 2020 and within weeks we were in Covid Lockdown for months, It was a rough start but we bounced back and over the course of the two years we have grown steadily and now have clients across a wide range of sectors from hospitality to the construction sector, manufacturing and childcare nationwide”.

Speaking on his plans for the future James Mcpartland commented

“ In 2020 we started with a small local client base, this has grown steadily to include clients nationwide, we are currently in the process of increasing the number of Safety training programs on offer to our clients and to further expand our panel of tutors. It is encouraging to see so many employers take staff and customer safety so seriously and we look forward to working with them on this journey. Safety is a fundamental cornerstone of any workplace and staff training and awareness is vital to accomplish this.”
