“We went on an off Road tour arranged by Chris in the Scottish Highlands for a group of fellow defender drivers. Everything had been well thought out from the campsite to the lunch stops. We had a good variety of off road driving from muddy tracks, twisting routes through forests to driving the longest freshwater beach in Scotland! Anyone without previous off road experience had the opportunity to have the help needed from Chris as a qualified instructor to tackle some of the more advanced obstacles. Not something we have come across with other operators. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for a tailored tour or training, you will not be disappointed!”
“If ever a project needs a creative way of thinking about Health and Safety, Chris Putt is your man. He’s been writing risk assessments for a global PR agency for four years and in that time has learned that no two events are ever the same. In close consultation with the rest of the team, Chris has adapted each and every event risk assessment to make sure that it allows the event to proceed as it should, while still maintaining the very highest safety standards. No detail is overlooked and every potential disaster is mitigated – an especially challenging task when the events are mostly involving journalists.
With over 10 years of experience in the H&S world, his vast skill set means he has trained people in all manner of risk management, from flood water rescue to working at height. He is also one of the most experienced off-road drivers in the country. Fortunately, given the brimmed state of his garage, he is also well versed in confined space working.”
I have recently completed a sitaside course with Chris. I already thought I was fairly proficient in the use of a quad bike but I learned a lot during the day spent on the course. He covered both theoretical and practical aspects including the safety side.
Chris is positive, encouraging and exceptionally knowledgeable. I thoroughly enjoyed the day, got a lot out of it and learned a great deal.
I’ve been on numerous courses in the past and this one is right up there with the best. I would highly recommend it.
Andy Plimmer CRO training officer
The Cave Rescue Organisation (CRO) is a cave and mountain rescue team run solely by volunteers within the operational area of the Three Peaks region of the Yorkshire Dales. Attending around ninety incidents a year makes the team one of the busiest in the UK. To assist the team in it’s duties a side by side ATV has recently been purchased. Chris Putt from the Off road Consultancy in collaboration with Coniston Hall off road centre has been delivering Lantra training and assessment for the team drivers. Chris has been extremely helpful and instructive and all the candidates have found his style and approach very supportive. Everyone attending for training has learned an enormous amount and has come back full of confidence and praise for the course.
To be able to now take the vehicle out into the dark and wet, on those critical rescues knowing that team members and casualties will be in safe hands is very reassuring.
