By far the best team I've ever worked with. They truly understood the look I was going for and completely nailed it! I would highly recommend them as a company, you simply just won't find any better team!

Aura Brooks

During the time I worked with the Sinclair Consultancy I found them to be dedicated professionals who always strived to find the best solution to any challenge set. During their tenure as QHSE Manager at OIS they proved themselves to be a valuable members of the senior management team, reacting positively to all the requirements of the business, project and Client demands.

It's clear that the company is knowledgeable in Quality Health Safety & Environmental practices within the oil and gas sectors of the Industry and is very competent in establishing and Maintaining Management systems which meet ISO9001, 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards.

It was a pleasure working with the company and I would welcome any opportunity to work with them again in the future.
