About us

Intrinsic Safety was founded in 2017 by active firefighters with the vision of becoming leaders in the safety industry by delivering exceptional training standards and unmatched professionalism. With that vision in mind, we centre our processes around creating a training environment that places the highest value on the individual, to instill a sense of ownership and to embrace excellence in all aspects of safety.

Your business faces unique challenges and opportunities and ‘Cookie-Cutter” training programs aren’t going to get the results you seek. Our training programs are carefully designed to account for your unique circumstances and specific safety goals.

We pay careful attention to the individual needs of everyone who attends our training. Every person has a particular learning style that suits them best and our programs make sure that all can enjoy and benefit from the training.

The key to a successful training program is the skill of the trainer. The program itself is a powerful vehicle but a top-notch trainer is needed to steer the course to a successful conclusion.

All of our trainers are specialists in their field. In addition, they have all had to qualify to attend our intensive Train-the-Trainer program. That makes sure they meet our high professional training standard and ensures every course is consistent in quality and content.

All our trainers are dynamic, friendly people who have years of experience and are highly skilled in using interactive teaching techniques and accelerated learning principles. You will not find a comparable group of such skilled professionals anywhere else.
