Health and Safety

A high standard of Health and Safety in the workplace is essential to make sure we are not harmed in any way from the work we do. Poor Health and Safety standards can result in poor business reputation, fines, prosecution, business closure, injury and loss of life.

That’s why our Health and Safety courses are designed to ensure you understand the potential Health and Safety risks in the workplace. With courses in Health and Safety Awareness, Risk Assessment, Working at Height and COSHH our courses will equip you with the essential skills needed to identify workplace hazards and risk before it’s too late.

What’s more, as regulated qualifications, you can rest assured that booking one of our courses for your employees means that you have fulfilled your legal responsibility to provide adequate training.

Our Health and Safety courses can be delivered at your place of work at a time and date that best suits you. We deliver Health and Safety courses throughout Cumbria and the UK.
