Health, Safety and Environment

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, employers must provide staff with health and safety training to perform responsibly in their job.

We appreciate that many businesses do not have the resources to manage this in-house so our courses are designed for managers, supervisors and staff from all types of organisations who need a broad understanding of health and safety issues.

Our training is accredited with Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (Highfield), Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) or National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH).
