Junior Tsedha Kennel Assistant
In my eight years' experience as a kennel assistant on project I have learned and benefited a lot...and counting.
I have to admit that all the benefits I get are not only a result of personal efforts I put forth to get the job done. It is also an outcome of both good working and living structure implemented by SafeLane. Which means a moderate workload, various dispositions of welfare, the closeness SafeLane keeps with us workers on ground and above all the obvious value that the company puts in for employees.
Personally I am well aware of what it takes to maintain the balance between the client's demand and and the effectiveness of workers on ground.
SafeLane is making the project efficient by concentrating on workers' wellbeing, through transparent communication and listening to workers. Either workers are on duty or on vacation they are not bored or over worked. This is so important to wellbeing that I always feel proud to be a part of SafeLane's endeavours.
It has been a while now since we faced changes, in a positive way, on site. I believe this is due to the visits we had had lately from our project manager from UK, Mr. Walderman Julian, the operation project manager, Mr. Crawford Bob the canine manager and the project executive Ms. Durnan Kelly. When they come here they grasp the stakes of all the challenges and act accordingly to make everything the best.
The foremost best thing I have experienced on this project is the way SafeLane entrusts workers to take initiatives and listens to their ideas. This happened to me when I had a face to face with Ms. Kelly. I did love it. After it I felt so confident and more motivated to perform my duty the best I can.
I guess this is the kind of interaction that should always be maintained between the employer and employee.
I strongly believe that the best is to come for this ongoing project and for any other SafeLane project in the future.
Mike Mpango, Veterinary Officer in Somalia
"As for the [SafeLane Global] team answering any questions raised, I just give them credit apparently. most especially the Project Manager and Deputy project manager , Project officer, Project support officer and the Acting Operations Officer. Their cooperation, support and team work spirit, has done me a good job in service delivery. With regards to the recruitment exercise, I just regard it to be good, fast and not time consuming, especially if the candidate is ready to immediately undertake the job. The man power executive were extremely supportive and informative, and that's how I was only able to be assessed, recruited and supported online to enter into Somalia, where I had never been before. I dont have additional comments, but just to wish the company success and prosperity.”
Daouda Zana Coulibaly, Former EOD Team Leader in Central African Republic, current EOD Team Leader in Darfur
“Yes [SafeLane Global] is good to answer any question i may have. I appreciated the recruitment process of [SafeLane Global] , Very quick and [SafeLane Global] is ready any times to up to date the staff for the step of deployment. With [SafeLane Global], we just need to send our CV to Charlotte Haines or Rebecca Wright for review , but with the others companies is very hard . With Most of the other companies, you need to fill a cover letter, fill also a template and the CV. You will now do 2 interviews. And you will also do a small exercise before the second interview. If you failed for that exercise, you failed for that job. For any additional comment, i will just say [SafeLane Global] is a lovely company. I hope [SafeLane Global] will be the very best company around the world.”

Global Strategies Afghanistan
"In the seven years that Global Integrated Security has worked with [SafeLane Global] in both Iraq and Afghanistan, they has consistently demonstrated exceptional and professional detection dog handling services. On the multiple projects in which we have worked with [SafeLane Global], including key critical infrastructure protection ... [SafeLane Global] has provided knowledgeable and experienced Explosive Detection and Patrol dog teams and handlers. Any changes to the scope of work or issues with the teams were addressed in a timely and efficient manner, enabling operations to continue smoothly. GIS looks forward to continued working and teaming with [SafeLane Global] to provide essential security and protective services in high risk locations."
"[SafeLane Global's] main duties include, vehicle searching (HGV's and cars) at a very busy Entry Control Point, and the twice daily sweep of a large construction site... When called upon the handlers who are permanently based here also search baggage and stores that need to come into this site. Their professionalism and good humour in sometimes very arduous conditions cannot recommended highly enough. The management I come into contact with on a very regular basis have an excellent working relationship with me and as far as I can see with their handlers, and it is obvious to me that the welfare of their men and animals here, and the quality of service is paramount to them. I am impressed with the professionalism of [SafeLane Global's] personnel at this location and they are a major contributing factor to the safety and security of this very important and prestigious construction site."
"Thank you for the professional manner in which [SafeLane Global] completed this project on time. Your positive attitude towards safety as well as the proactive manner in which issues were resolved on site are noted and appreciated."

Their efforts made the whole evolution run smoothly, and everyone involved were more than happy on what was being provided. Please let the guys know that good work is always noted and valued."
"I have been out of the country for a while but I did not want to miss a chance to express my personal satisfaction upon completion of [SafeLane Global] project in Eastern DRC. Also I would like to praise the excellent work of the Project Manager. During his tenure he has constantly displayed enthusiasm and professional demeanour. Of particular value to me as DPM-OPS was Michel's team player mind-set, his capacity to overcome challenges inherent to local environment and ability to deal with various mine action stakeholders in his area of responsibility."
Oil company technical adviser
"[SafeLane Global] has provided UXO clearance services in Papua New Guinea for both our Phase 2 Geotechnical Site Investigation in August of 2010 and our Phase 3 Geotechnical Site Investigation. During the Phase 2 investigations, they provided clearance for 8 borehole locations and 7 test pit locations, as well as access paths to these locations. This Phase 2 work was performed directly as a subcontract to our Geotechnical Engineering Consultant. During the Phase 3 investigations, we engaged [SafeLane Global] directly to provide clearance of 5 borehole and 9 test pit locations and associated access routes. On both investigations, [SafeLane Global] provided knowledgeable and experienced personnel to perform its clearance work professionally and in a timely manner, allowing the geotechnical investigations to be completed without incident. We are very happy [SafeLane Global's] work and would not hesitate to utilize them again should the occasion arise."
"[SafeLane Global] handlers, without exception, have been loyal, trustworthy, disciplined and dedicated to delivering this invaluable service which is essential to protecting the integrity of the British Embassy. From the intense heat of summer to the freezing cold of winter the ED Dogs have been worked efficiently and it is obvious how well the [SafeLane Global] handlers care for them both in terms of welfare and training. In short – a job well done and I would thoroughly recommend the EDD product that [SafeLane Global] provide as a reliable, professional and well supported product."
"I have found [SafeLane Global] to be a very flexible and responsible to the changing needs of the Marathon project in the Kurdish Region of Iraq. [SafeLane Global] has focused on its scope of responsibilities and performed its work professionally. Steve Wilson will follow up with details about the technical performance of [SafeLane Global] , as I do not have experience in this area. We appreciate [SafeLane Global] service to Marathon Oil KDV B.V.

“In our monthly Workforce Engagement meeting one of your site team has been nominated for our Project Incentive Scheme. He was nominated by MS Construction Manager for always being helpful & explaining how SafeLane Global works - especially when challenged on a point of safety. This is a reflection of all your site team’s efforts and is much appreciated. We are all quick to focus on the negatives and ignore any positive feedback so I would like to thank all your Ops on site for their pro-active attitude so far, let’s keep up the good work.”
