Operational Safety Training

Good intentions are admirable, but without the skills to implement them they have little value. We provide a range of courses to help you and your staff work towards making every day a safe day.

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH), the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations, the Provision and Use of Work Equipment (PUWER), Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) plus several others govern the operation of your business.

DSC 0023 663x440 Operational Safety TrainingThese courses will help you promote a culture where confident people with positive attitudes, exercising safe practices is the norm.  Health and safety regulations generally require that works are properly planned undertaken and supervised by competent people.  This training will enhance your team’s competence.

Well trained staff are safer and more productive.  Also training reduces damage to equipment and lost time through injury.
