Who can benefit from Illuminate Consult services?


  • New to the industry - gone on to crew for other firework companies or set up as new operators
  • Single operators and small operations - bewildered by the mountain of regulation and paperwork required to operate safely and within the law, used the training material, other select services and outsourcing some elements to us
  • Larger established operators – who have fallen behind the fast moving changes in regulation, now happy to catch up and supplement their operations with current methodologies

Event groups

  • Event Management companies – needing to safely deliver fireworks as part of a larger event
  • Borough Councils – training staff to operate their own firework department
  • City Councils – training for events related staff to better understand the technicalities and risk involved with delivering large scale fireworks and pyrotechnics
  • Charity groups – for the safe and confident selection and management of firework providers
  • Bonfire societies –village societies historically ‘doing their own thing’ but now recognising the need to operate safely within the law

Specialist sectors

  • Local authorities (including Trading Standards and Fire Officers) – needing better understanding of the regulatory requirements for compliance purposes
  • Insurance Companies – to establish minimum standards in respect of managing insurance liabilities
  • Insurance Underwriter – accident investigation and reporting
  • Operators requiring specialist on-site training, endorsement and risk management, ie electrical rigging, roof-top displays, listed sites, close proximity work
