Health and Safety Training
Our health and safety expertise covers a broad range of health and safety topics and subject areas including coshh training, occupational health and safety, manual handling training and construction site safety.
For any training or learning to be effective, course delegates must stay focused. Our health and safety course tutors are experts in keeping the attention of those on the course, which results in more information being absorbed and retained. Health and safety can be a dry subject at the best of times, particularly when in comes to learning about legislation and regulations. Rather than sit and work through a textbook all day, mixing in activities such as interactive discussions and group work help to engage the whole class, keeping delegates interested so they do not "switch off" and miss vital content.
This has not only resulted in our high exam results and pass rates for accredited health and safety qualifications, but also keeps course attendees coming back to us when they want to progress further in their career by undergoing additional health and safety training in order to gain more comprehensive health and safety qualifications.

Health and Safety NVQ Qualifications
A Vocational Qualification Completed in your Own Workplace
One of the main drawbacks of health and safety training is the need to take time out of the workplace to attend a training course. Sometimes one day can be tough enough, but when it is a comprehensive qualification like the NEBOSH General Certificate or NEBOSH Diploma for example which require entire weeks to be taken away from work it can be extremely difficult.
Some people try and overcome this difficulty by opting for an online or distance learning course, but due to the sheer amount of information taught this is not a good choice for this type of qualification. Reading just a few long pages on the internet can cause tiredness, a loss of concentration and skipping through the text, but imagine trying to read the equivalent of weeks' worth of course information on a computer screen. As many people do not find health and safety information the most exciting of reads at the best of times, it is easy to see why many students going down this route fail to learn and retain enough information to pass the assessments at the conclusion, resulting in them not achieving the qualification.
For those already in a health and safety job role and who wish to acquire a high-level health and safety qualification, but who simply cannot afford to take any time away from the workplace to attend a classroom taught course, one of the best options is a health and safety NVQ. These vocational qualifications involve the collection of evidence gathered by an individual as they go about their normal workplace duties, which is then submitted to a personal NVQ assessor. Whereas once upon a time there was a need for cumbersome paper portfolios which needed to be sent back and forth in the post, and could easily get lost in shipment, nowadays evidence is submitted securely online in an instant.
We provide the City & Guilds Health and Safety NVQ Level 3 in Occupational Health and Safety, and the City & Guilds Health and Safety NVQ Diploma Level 5 in Occupational Health and Safety. To find out more about what is involved in each one, as well as prices and eligibility criteria, please visit our Health and Safety NVQ section by clicking here, or click on the "Contact" tab at the top of the page to get in touch.
I found every one of the three courses to be excellent in terms of preparation, delivery and course materials. Your trainers are of the highest standard and are all passionate about their subjects.
I thought that you would like to know that everyone thoroughly enjoyed the last training session. According to feedback, it was the best IOSH training session they have ever attended.
I would like to say thanks again for the excellent tuition you delivered and I am sure that it was a major factor in my gaining an overall credit for the NEBOSH General Certificate.
Certain industries, job roles and environments are more dangerous than others in terms of the potential risks and consequences. That being said, every place of work will have some hazards to a person's health or the environment which need be addressed. This is why health and safety training is so important for all employees, managers and directors of a company. How many hazards can you identify in the images below?
Construction Site Safety
Construction sites are amongst the most dangerous places of work in existence. With so many potential hazards and dangers, appropriate and comprehensive health and safety training is essential. Training courses such as the NEBOSH Construction Certificate, along with the CSKills/CITB Site Managers SMSTS and SSSTS courses provide attendees with the knowledge and information they need to keep themselves safe on site, and prevent harm coming to others.
An office environment is typically a lower-risk place of work than most others, but this can sometimes lead to a lack of proper attention being paid to health and safety. This can result in accidents taking place which are easily preventable. Never forget that there are still many potential dangers and risks which exist in an office, a large number of which can cause serious injury to yourself, your employees or your colleagues. How many can you identify in the picture above?
