We are a health and safety consultancy that is passionate about practical, proportionate health and safety solutions. We have seen firsthand what work environments without proper safety management can be like – and what can happen to the workers.

We have also worked in areas that are over-managed, where too much the staff time is taken up writing documents and filling out forms. Our services are designed to bring our expertise to your business and help keep everyone safe while saving you costs and time.

What are the Acumen Safety values?

  • Everyone should go home with their health after a day’s work

  • Safety should be simple. We create tailored safety management systems that work for your staff

  • Good safety management is an enabling force for your organisation

Meet the Director

Olly Galvin is the company director and the driving force behind the business. After a long career in event stage and site management, he achieved his NEBOSH General Certificate in 2017 and has pursued a career in health and safety management since.

Olly has taken on the health and safety advisor role for hundreds of events across the UK and the Middle East, gaining a huge experience in the practical application of good standards of health and safety management in widely varying situations.

In the last two years he has bought his focus to bear on more occupational health and safety roles, taking on the Competent Advisor role for several nationally recognised companies. This change of focus has been the catalyst for the launch of Acumen Safety.

Olly currently holds an active position as an Associate Lecturer for Sheffield Hallam University alongside his festival and event safety management roles with Galvin Events. He is a Technical Member of IOSH and an Associate Member of the IIRSM as well as being an approved IOSH trainer.
