Our Story

My name is Matthew Earp.  After finishing my university education in Sports and Leisure Management over twenty years ago, my first role in a leisure centre led me to take on health and safety responsibilities for the organization.  I could not have known then, how my passion to share Health and Safety knowledge would continue to this day! 

I recall that no-one else wanted to take on that role in Health and Safety.

However, I am so glad that it was assigned to me because as I learned the subject, I reflected on how poor health and safety in the work environment had a real negative impact on some friends and family close to me.  In one case, it had led to cancer in a worker exposed to fumes.  In another case, it had led to damaged hand tendons.  These were real impacts that could have been avoided by responsible health and safety policy and implementation.

I believe everyone should have the right to work; and engage as a customer, in a physically and emotionally safe way.

This realization gave me a real passion to learn more and to take personal responsibility to get the message out in an impactful way. 

During 2004, I decided to focus on Health and Safety full-time and set up my company Safely Does IT Ltd.  Since then, I have been full-time involved in first aid and health & safety training.  I started Safely Does IT to help spread the message I am passionate about that can really make a difference in their day to day lives.

During circa 2011, the Health and Safety market was de-regulated.  I noticed that the quality of training in the marketplace did not always align to the pre-regulated models and standards of good practice.  I became motivated to develop my own courses – supporting my content with practical and academic qualifications that gave me a greater depth of knowledge to share interesting facts with students to make the training relevant and real to ultimately create a passion for applying the knowledge of health and safety in their day to day lives.  I remain aligned through membership with Authorised Organizations so that the quality of my training is voluntarily regulated and assessed to the highest training standards set by the experts in this field.


“I have been working with Safely Does It for over 10 years. Matt is a fantastic trainer his sessions are engaging and informative. Feedback from our delegates is always excellent, those refreshing qualifications are always pleased to see its Matt training them again. I can highly recommend Safely Does It for all your First Aid and Health & Safety training.”
