The following courses were held for the client to meet required training needs…

This client received the IOSH Managing Safely Course so their managers would have an understanding of their responsibilities when it comes to health and safety within the charity. The course is designed to bring managers up to speed on the practical actions they need to take to handle health and safety in their teams.

The fire warden training course is designed to fulfil the statutory requirements of the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order (RRFSO) legislation. The course equips fire wardens to provide general fire safety awareness for staff.

The Emergency First Aid at Work courses were required as the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to enable first aid to be given to employees if they are injured or become ill at work.


We were able to keep the costs down for this charity whilst still providing our full professional services.
