Tyne and Wear Development Company has recently used the services of MacDonald Martin to provide a Fire Risk Assessment, which followed on with fire safety training and a number of other works. On each occasion the professionalism, efficiency, expertise and politeness of MacDonald Martin personnel has consistently been of an exceptionally high standard. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone.

We have used trainers provided by MacDonald Martin Limited for our last two staff First Aid sessions and find that the sessions are delivered in a friendly, efficient and informative manner which helps everyone to feel comfortable with their First Aid knowledge.

The First Aid at Work Training was brilliant! Instilling the confidence in any individual is a task in itself, however Steve and Keith’s relaxed training methods allow for this, as they create scenarios for you to give the best first aid assistance prior to the arrival of the emergency services. What we learnt was invaluable. The course was relaxed but very informative and we had the opportunity to discuss real life experiences. The teaching atmosphere was upbeat and all participants were engaged throughout. I would definitely recommend this course to everyone.”

We use MacDonald Martin to provide our fire risk assessments and fire safety training across our organisation. They are extremely reliable, flexible and knowledgeable. On one recent occasion, they saved us £20,000 by advising us as to what fire safety measures where required at one of our buildings – a tremendous saving in anyone’s books – this money can now be spent elsewhere.


They are very aware of clients’ needs, and work hard with us to help us fulfill our objectives. The fire safety training they have provided has been extremely well received by our staff, and again it has been tailored to our organisation specifically.  We also intend to use their services for the provision of emergency procedures throughout the organisation.


Our initial contact with the company was to get assistance in advance of appointing our own Fire Advisor.  However, the support provided has been so successful that we expect our association to continue for many years.


In short, I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending their services to anyone. You can be assured of a thoroughly professional job from start to finish, whatever your needs.

We have used the services of MacDonald Martin to install a new fire alarm system in our school.  They provided an extremely professional service, at short notice, and all of their staff were very really helpful, punctual and efficient.  The price of the installation was considerably less than other quotes, and we were very happy with the service that they provided.


We have also used MacDonald Martin for our Fire Warden training, and look forward to developing a long standing working relationship with them.

MacDonald Martin Limited has provided Newcastle University with specialist advice on two occasions. The first looked at the means of escape, in a number of their buildings; this was followed up with a detailed action plan for the University to act upon. This was a 3 month project which involved detailed analysis of modern and older buildings, some dating back more than 100 years.


The second was a follow-up from the first report, which included a survey of the fire safety signage and the provision of emergency lighting. Work was also provided by MacDonald Martin Limited to put in place the necessary requirements to comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire safety) Order.


This work was endorsed by the University Fire Officer who values the skill and expertise that MacDonald Martin Limited provides.
