Prompt Service

Hi Kelly and Alison,

Thank you so much for working on the WHS Manual last night for Peter Small Plumbing.

I can't tell you how much I appreciated your prompt service - I am sure this is above and beyond your service standard.

Please pass on to your management how thrilled I am with the service I received.

Sometimes you get a bit skeptical when you just google a product with no prior knowledge of a company - but I was desperate and I thought 'Oh well if I get ripped off - I'll just wear it' But from the very first email I received from Alison I could tell this was a professional business.

Thank you so much for helping me with this 'complex' issue of WHS. Thank you also for the helpful notes on 'Implementing a Safety System' (Very helpful for the novice !!
