What Our Clients Say

I have been using the services of Ben Gibson for a number of years. As GM of a large organisation with over 250 staff, safety and compliance was paramount. With Ben's support and assistance we were able to operate effectively and efficiently with the highest regard to workplace safety. Safety for us was about a culture and building this into every department and everything we do. With Ben's guidance we had the confidence to operate knowing that we had the systems and processes in place!

Paul Hinton General Manager

The advice and support I have received from Ben and The Toolbox Team has been brilliant. Relevant, practical and engaging, everything they deliver provides real compliance outcomes. The Toolbox Team are leading the way for compliance management in the sports turf industry!
Great work Team.

Steve Eddy Grounds Manager

Ben and The Toolbox Team have gotten our safety sorted. As my business grew I knew it was important to me that our staff were safe and we were doing things properly. With regular Toolbox Talks and advice our business is better than ever. We even passed an inspection from SafeWork NSW with flying colours!

I cannot thank them enough for how they have helped my business.

Nick Business Owner Mechanical

Our team has worked with Ben for more than 5 years and myself more closely over the last 12 months and the support he has provided our organisation has been very valuable.

Jason General Manager

I have just returned home from a two day leadership workshop run by The Toolbox Team. This was the second leadership workshop that I have attended this year. Ben Gibson’s professionalism and delivery was outstanding! It was a forum with guest speakers, real life experiences along with many tools to work towards being a better leader. I would recommend this workshop to anyone that is looking at improving their leadership qualities professionally and personally. I got so much out of the two days.

Pat Wilson Course Superintendent Golf

A great team that engage with your staff very well and are proactive at making safety front of mind. The tools they have on offer make compliance and prevention of incidents a peace of mind certainty.

Linkon Hooper Operations Manager

I attended a leadership forum run by Ben Gibson this week and can’t speak more highly of Ben and his company The Toolbox Team. Thoroughly enjoyed the course and have come away with a lot of great ideas and tools that will help me succeed in my career. I’m looking forward to working with Ben in the future.

Cameron Butt Assistant Superintendent Golf

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Ben and the Toolbox team to help define a WHS strategy for our organisation. Their expertise and service delivery is exceptional and we couldn’t fault their approach. We also use their online tools and training in our day-to-day operation, which has led to a massive improvement in the overall safety culture. Highly recommend the Toolbox team!

Erich Weber Director Facility Management

We have always made the safety of our guys a priority but with Ben’s help we were able to take it to the next level. The simple and practical advice from The Toolbox Team gave us real peace of mind.

Corie Business Owner Kitchen & Cabinetry

I thoroughly enjoyed both days of the toolbox team course. Ben Gibson was very professional and well organised. I took a lot out of the two days. I have recommended to other colleagues that they attend the course.

Simon Blagg Assistant Superintendent Golf

We recently engaged Ben to conduct a workshop for our project. His role was to assist in the preparation of workshop materials, facilitate engagement, consult with, and obtain feedback from a wide range of stakeholders involved in the project. His ability to run the workshop, empathise with various parties and create an open and trusting environment that allowed all to contribute was exceptional.

Rob Project Manager

I had the pleasure of attending one of Ben’s Toolbox Team seminars recently at Bayview Golf Club.
His modern approach and professionalism to his seminars is second to none. I could thoroughly recommend Ben and The Toolbox Team, thanks again Ben and well done.
