Thank you so much. Everyone really enjoyed the course! Everyone was commenting on how much they got from the course (even those that had completed previously!) I’m sure you already really value Jody – but his delivery of the course was perfectly pitched and fantastic! Please pass on our thanks!

Myself, My boss and 4 others attended Jody's Operational Inspection Course last week. I just wanted to provide feedback from the course. Jody made the two day course, not only very informative, but fun to learn too. The passion he has for his job really shows in his training techniques. One of our employees was taking a renewal and pointed out that he had learnt a lot more from Jody's course than he had previously from another company's training. He truly is an asset to your company. Many Thanks!

We have found that the Inspection system fills our needs perfectly, it’s easy to use and update, it produces very professional reports with photos that have helped us defend potential claims & is backed up by knowledgeable & professional staff that know the play industry inside & out, their inspections give us an independent realistic snapshot of our play areas.

The Public Forest estate is deeply connected to peoples lives and to the improving health and wellbeing of the nation. The New Forest welcomes over 15 million day visits per year. We offer 135 recreational sites and trails and over 100 miles of off road cycling routes for our visitors to access and enjoy the Forest. To ensure public safety we regularly inspect and maintain these facilities and have adopted the Play Inspection Companies software as our chosen system. Each of our sites is unique and consists of numerous infrastructure, litter bins, benches, signage, toilets, way marker posts and picnic tables. The PIC helped develop their software beyond its regular use of play equipment, to enable us to inspect all of our facilities and infrastructure. This even includes tree safety. The app allows multiple inspectors to undertake inspections and repairs to be signed off with ease and cloud storage is invaluable, with no paper-chain needed. The ability to interrogate the system and produce all manner of reports, provides peace of mind and robustness in terms of mitigating liability and managing public safety.

Having used other systems in the past, we know that this system really is the best out there. It is very easy for our operators to use whether utilising the pre-set faults, recording works completed or adding new features and equipment, it is very quick and simple.
