About Solutions Training & Advisory Ltd

Who are we:

Solutions Training & Advisory Ltd was formed in 1994 by Paul Meek (Chartered F.C.I.P.D). Paul has an extensive career within the emergency services, having posts in the police force and a twenty-two-year career in the ambulance service as Operations Director. Throughout Paul’s career, he was exposed daily to the consequences of poorly managed risks, and this is what spurred Paul to establish Solutions Training, he wanted to bridge the visible but avoidable gaps in risk management and in particular health & safety education and the development of equipment used to aid safer transportation of people.

All our products are manufactured in the U.K. to exacting standards.

We are extremely proud to boast that some of the equipment offered on this website has been developed as a result of real-life experiences that our healthcare professionals have faced within their careers when moving & handling people. Our team wanted to develop products to ease the physical element of the moving & handling process and to ensure that people are moved in a compliant, safe, and dignified manner with the support of competitive, quality moving & handling aids.

Our aim is to reduce risk by developing moving & handling products and by developing people that use the moving & handling products.

On this site you can purchase the most commonly sought-after kit including;

  • Slide sheets (reusable and disposable)
  • Handling belts (various sizes)
  • Handling slings
  • Rota cushions (two sizes)
  • Transfer boards
  • Unique carry sheets (standard and bariatric sizes) (with or without drainage)
