Matrix Risk Control secures training contract in China

Posted by Clare Scott


An Aberdeen-based incident investigation specialist has secured a six-figure contract for training provision with Shenzhen-based safety consultancy, Job Safety Solutions.

Under the terms of the contract, which is valued at around £100,000, Matrix Risk Control (Matrix) will provide a train-the-trainer programme to allow Job Safety Solutions personnel to deliver its classroom-based incident investigator's toolkit course in China. Job Safety Solutions will also act as the country agent for Matrix's Key Learning modules, a new offering that enables organisations to train their staff in incident investigation via e-learning.

 Matrix Risk Control was established in 2009 by former senior police officers. The company has developed a number of specialist training programmes and support services to help organisations manage their operational risk. Its incident investigation courses are IOSH-approved and have attracted attention from an international audience.

The company's new agreement with Job Safety Solutions follows Matrix's participation in a Scottish Development International (SDI) trade mission to China earlier this year. The work is due to commence in September on a rolling contract basis, with the first review in a year's time.

Mhorvan Sherret, commercial director, Matrix Risk Control said: “We are very pleased to have quickly established such a positive relationship with Job Safety Solutions following our introductory meeting in March.

“This outcome underlines the value of participation in trade missions – and the benefit of the support and advice that Matrix receives from Scottish Enterprise.

“Thinking big really can pay off for smaller companies, provided they are prepared to invest the time and resources. This contract provides our trainers with an excellent opportunity to experience another culture and to progress their own professional development by delivering services in Asia.”

David Xu, president and CEO, Job Safety Solutions said: “We are delighted to be working with Matrix Risk Control and are excited about introducing their incident investigation course provision to China.

“Our team are looking forward to welcoming Matrix representatives to Shenzhen in September, when the first phase of training will begin.”

Matrix Risk Control was founded by former senior police investigators in 2009 to help organisations manage many major forms of operational business risk.  The company provides training and specialist support services in the three core areas of incident recording, incident investigation and root cause analysis. Its team of 15 supports clients internationally and is headquartered in Aberdeen, Scotland. For further information go to or telephone + 44 (0) 1224 937497.
