Health and Safety Publications Ltd., started trading in 2005 and is owned by Marek Szepietowski, a Polish national and his Irish wife Rose. Marek who has a health and safety training background saw a gap in the market for quality, professional health and safety training material. Marek and Rose both working from home in Rathcoole, Co. Cork, designed, published and printed their first training manual on the topic of Manual Handling which was a huge success.
Training companies and individual trainers were delighted to see such quality books appearing in the market place especially when they discovered they could customise the covers to promote their own businesses.
Marek appeared on Dragon’s Den in 2014 and received investment offers from two of the Dragons, Barry O’ Sullivan and Peter Casey.
Later in 2014 the business moved to the Newberry Cross Industrial Enterprise Park in Mallow, and now supplies an extensive range of books, (which is constantly growing) used for training in the various fields of health and safety. All of the books are compliant with current legislation and are packed with vital information, useful photographs and humorous sketches making them reader friendly. In 2016 Marek was honoured to be a Cork North Enterprise winner for his growing success with his business.
Health and Safety Publications Ltd., also supplies a number of visual training aids such as anatomy models, safety posters and presentations. One of our most recent projects was a Risk Assessment presentation and employee workbook for the pharmaceutical industry which is being rolled out globally.
We are the leading provider of the RSA’s Driver CPC books in Ireland and also work with multi-national companies to create customised and bespoke books such as employee/contractor handbooks and presentations. We expanded our net recently and are now growing our business in the UK and have supplied books in Polish and Russian.
Becoming the “go to” company for health and safety training literature is integral to our customer service plan which is why listening to our customer’s requirements and providing the best service possible is our number one priority!
