Testimonials & Reviews

At First Stop Safety, we strive to make sure you have all the knowledge you need about our products and services. The testimonials below are all actual feedback from our customers.

I have used First Stop Safety for over five years now for the purchasing and calibration of equipment and for training purposes. I have always received a first class service for all fo these requirements, I make arrangements for the calibration of all our units on an annual basis and there has never been an issue with pick up or return delivery.

I have negotiated cost effective methods to reduce costs when having the units picked up and returned and there has never been an issue arranging this, FisrtStop have always assisted and flexible in reducing costs where possible due to multiple units being returned for calibration.

I have used, and attended a course myself, for training purposes and in 2012 all PAT testing managers have attended a refresher course and I have received written feedback from two attendees complementing the quality of the content and delivery of the course.

Where I have experienced a service shortfall, which has been very rare (If I recall there has been only one in all the time I have used them), the issue has been dealt with in a professional, prompt and courteous manner to a successful resolution.

I would have no hesitation in recommending FirstStop for your PAT testing needs.

Thanks again and I look forward to dealing with you again.

Thank you so much for providing training in our British RedCross shops across Mid & West Wales recently.

The team were initially very apprehensive about doing the training and to the credit of the trainer, he put them at ease and ran the course at a pace suitable for all those concerned.

Having had a team of 8 trained, the benefits have been instant. Not only have we had the benefits of receiving and selling Electrical items but also it has resulted in an increase of general Stock Donations and by also attracting different customers into our shops.

The ongoing support that we have from First Stop Safety has allowed the teams to go about their day to day role with the confidence of First Stop Safety being a phone call away.

With the Most Supportive Supplier to the Sector award by the Charity Retailers Associated imminent, surely First Stop Safety is in the running to receive the award and if First Stop Saftey are not nominated then I am more than happy to nominate for the work they have done within my area of the British RedCross.

Once again, many thanks for your support and I look forward to working with you in the future and have no hesitation in recommending First Stop Safety to my colleagues.

I would like to thank you and your colleague from David Barnes and myself for the training we just undertook. To start with the venue was quiet pleasant, we were nervous about the training and the implications with been able to PAT test equipment we supply to the people of Enfield as Integrated Community equipment Service. We have to deal with complex equipment for the elderly and vulnerable, the need to issue safe equipment is paramount. The training itself was clear, non jargonistic, simplistic but professional. The presentation was well prepared with enough literature not to confuse the lay person. It boiled down to commonsense really and the right tools. I was nervous going into the test at the end of the training but was surprised to find it all fell into place due to the training we had. I would recommend the course to anyone who needed to send out or sell used/refurbished equipment .


I attended your offices yesterday for the PAT testing course, please pass my thanks to your staff, and indeed to yourself for the warm welcome shown to myself and the other delegates. I have been to, quite a number of events like this over the years, and it was a pleasant surprise to find your staff so friendly and helpful.

The course was refreshingly straightforward and you seem to have acquired the skill of making it long enough to make sure we all left with the correct level of training, without it becoming boring. There was lots of good advice being given without any heavy sales patter. Full marks from me, and i would have no hesitation in recommending your company to colleagues.Once again thank you and i look forward to doing business with you in the near future.



Many thanks for the PAT tester training course. It was very useful, easy to understand and very informative. It was the third PAT test course I have been on and by far the best. You taught me things I did not already know without blinding me with science. I have had positive feedback from all present and would recommend you to anyone.

Well presented, found it easy to understand. Conducted in nice surroundings


Thanks for your friendly service and help. It is good to talk to someone behind the website. I would also like to commend you on your website. It is easy to navigate, with good guidance and support for someone with limited knowledge of the PAT testing equipment required by H&SE. I am looking forward to use your products to assist us to comply with the law and provide a safe working environment for all our workers.

Thank you for a great day, it really was a first class informal/educational and stimulating day presented so well by your tutor. Every aspect of your day was great including the first class sandwiches and copious offers of coffee during the day. Once again well done and I will be back!
