Courses we offer Include


First Aid at Work & EFAW

Every Employer is legally required to appoint at least one first aid person and larger businesses may need multiple first aiders.
Employers are required to carry out an assessment of first-aid needs.
This involves consideration of workplace hazards and risks, the size of the organisation and other relevant factors, to determine what first-aid equipment, facilities and personnel should be provided.


Construction Plant

Employers must 'ensure that all persons who use work equipment have received adequate training for the purposes of health and safety, including training in the methods which may be adopted when using work equipment, and risks which such use may entail and the precautions to be taken.'
(PUWER reg 9). There is a similar duty to ensure adequate training in relation to supervisory and managerial staff.


Fire Safety/Marshal

The Fire Safety Order 2005 requires that fire safety training is provided to staff when they commence employment and that refresher training is provided on a regular basis.
Last year there were over 33,000 recorded fires in UK businesses and community buildings. Protect your staff now and give them the best chance of escape if a fire does happen.
Fire Safety Training is not only a legal requirement, it also saves lives and protects businesses.


HSE Lift Truck ACOP

Paragraph 32
Employers should not allow anyone to operate, even on a very occasional basis, lift trucks within the scope of this ACOP who have not satisfactorily completed basic training and testing as described in this ACOP,
except for those undergoing such training under adequate supervision.
