Health and safety training including construction, fire safety and environmental courses. Fully accredited by NEBOSH, IOSH, City and Guilds and ConstructionSkills

Health and Safety Instructor


Our Health and Safety Instructor course is aimed at employees within an organisation who have been tasked with training other colleagues in health and safety (which could include delivering health and safety inductions). It covers a general overview of health and safety requirements that should be imparted into the workforce.

It is targeted at those new to training health and safety, and could also be ideal for those wishing to update their skills. The course will provide a broad and comprehensive overview of best practice in health and safety training techniques.

The course covers the latest key issues and priorities in health and safety including:-

  • The business case for health and safety, including health and safety law and the importance of health and safety in the workplace

  • Common hazards and controls including fire safety, COSHH (chemicals and harmful substances), working at heights, display screen equipment (DSE), manual handling, slips & trips, and work equipment safety

  • The risk assessment process and its importance in health and safety

  • The importance of behaviour in health and safety - achieving the safe place and safe person approach

  • In addition, we will explore modern trainer training techniques:

  • Planning and preparing to train, including the writing of trainers plans
  • Delivering effective training
  • Different learning styles using the Honey and Mumford approach
  • Dealing with difficult delegates
  • Providing feedback and assessment

  • Our tutors will work with delegates to ensure their courses are relevant, business focused and interesting to their own delegates.

    Course Material

    Each delegate on the Health and Safety Instructor course will be issued with a workbook to assist them both during and after the course. This workbook will contain information, technical knowledge, graphics and forms to assist health and safety trainers. In addition, each delegate will be presented with a trainer's pack containing a PowerPoint presentation and training material (activities, exercises etc.) for use in their own health and safety training sessions.

    Course Duration

    The Health and Safety Instructor course is delivered over two days.


    At the conclusion of day two, delegates will be required to design and deliver a micro health and safety training session. This will enable them to practice their new training skills and knowledge with expert feedback from our trainer before returning to the workplace.

    Delegates will be awarded a Certificate of Attendance upon successful completion of the Health and Safety Instructor course.
