Absolutely first-class telephone support and advice from Daniel Barber. Furthermore, there is now some potential for this to lead to an ongoing relationship re. HR/H&S documentary support - entirely resulting from Daniel's thorough exploration. (We've very recently instructed a company to do similar - I've not been central to that - so I shall need to 'pick bones out' of that, however I suspect it's not a far-reaching, therefore Daniel has provided me with info that I can take to Director level to explore further.)

HS direct is a no nonsense system that allows us to remain compliant with regard to risk assessing and all our health and safety needs we truly have benefitted from the system, a big issue for us was that only our managers could carry out risk assessments but now all our staff are happy to use the system and feel safe that they can compile risk assessments safely and above all legally ensuring that we can provide risk assessments to others in our field and be confident they will be workable and concise. I have no hesitation in recommending the system to others.

I don't have Microsoft Office or Microsoft Word, what should I do?

If you don't have Microsoft Office, or Microsoft Word installed on your PC or Mac, don't worry - you can still use our products. You can get a free alternative from Open Office.

Open Office Org is open-source developed alternative to Microsoft Office, developed by a large software company called Oracle. Open Source means the company who build the software, allow 100% use of it, 100% free.

Since Open Office is specifically developed to be exactly the same as Microsoft Office, with all the same programs in the suite (Eg: Word, Excel, Access and Power Point) - it will freely open any Microsoft Office file-format. Meaning, just because a document was written in Microsoft Word, doesn't mean it can't be opened in another program. Open Office will do that, and vise versa.

To download and install Open Office;

  1. Go to
  2. On the left hand side, click 'I want to download Open Office'. In the green box, click the main link which starts with 'Start downloading'
    • Windows Only:When the program has downloaded, click Install and wait for the program to install.
    • MAC OSX Only:When the program has downloaded, a notification box will pop up with an arrow from the Open Office Icon to the Applications Folder in Finder, drag the icon to the Applications folder to install the program.
  3. You are now ready to use Open Office, and the documents you have purchased from us.
