A little bit about us

Acton Jennings is a well-established, independent organisation dedicated to supporting the interests of employers. 

We have a wide client base throughout the whole of the UK ranging from internationally known ‘blue chip’ companies to small roofing contractors, to independent schools. All have found that the Acton Jennings’ approach provides the answer to their health and safety and human resources needs.

Our approach has been successful because it is based on the personal support which we give to each and every client. Our consultants are chosen for their experience and knowledge in their respective fields.

Our aims are:

  • Ÿ to provide cost effective, practical solutions, to the health and safety and people management problems faced by employers;
  • Ÿ to reduce the risk of legal action being pursued against our clients;
