Asbestos Training

Asbestos is a highly dangerous building material. Every year, thousands of people fall ill and die because of exposure to asbestos. This is due to its wide use by the construction industry until the year 2000.


The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 apply to employers, employees, self-employed persons, and duty holders. It covers all work with asbestos containing materials. Regulation 10 of CAR states that every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction, and training is given to employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos. This includes maintenance workers and others who may encounter or disturb asbestos.

Legionella Training

Current legislation set out by the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, along with the HSE’s updated code of practice known as L8, which was published in 2001, states that companies and building owners have a legal duty to manage legionella.


Our interactive video based training course is aimed at all employers and staff to assist them in identifying the danger that legionella poses.

Abrasive Wheels Training

This course is aimed at anyone who uses abrasive wheels, or employs people who use abrasive wheels as part of their work.


There are a wide range of tools and processes that use abrasive wheels. Ensuring these are used correctly and safely is of paramount importance. Applications range from hand grinding to disc cutting, and they can be used at all stages of a work process. 


Different wheels have different properties and characteristics that are suitable for certain tasks. They also have different weaknesses and can pose risks and hazards in handling and use. For this reason, safety training is important.

COSHH Training

In legal terms, these are substances that are classified as “very toxic, toxic, harmful, corrosive or Irritant” under the Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation (CLP). This is a new regulation that came into force in January 2009. It was paired with a set of regulations called REACH. REACH is a European Union regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals, which came into force on 1st June 2007. One of the main aims of REACH is to provide a high level of protection for human health and the environment from the use of chemicals.

Display Screen Equipment Training

These courses are aimed at users of display screen equipment (DSE), and those responsible for assessing display screen equipment. A ‘user’, is anyone who regularly uses display screen equipment for a significant part of their normal work. In practice, if you use display screen equipment continuously for more than one hour a day, then you’re a ‘user’. 


The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations contain special directives covering DSE safety. Both employers and employee-users have responsibilities under the legislation. The first thing most people think of is a computer monitor. But that’s not the only thing it refers to. Here are some examples of display screen equipment: 


  • Laptops
  • Tablet PCs
  • Televisions
  • Smartphones
  • CNC Control Pads
  • Portable Diagnostic Screens
  • Equipment Containing Cathode Ray Tubes
  • CRTs

These courses fulfil your statutory training obligations and show you the correct way to set up and use your display screen equipment safely. As a whole, it reduces the risk of work related conditions.

Food Safety Training

Food handlers and their employers have a legal duty to manage Food Safety. These obligations are set out by several EU and UK Laws. These laws state that food handlers must make sure that food is safe for human consumption. Failing to follow food safety standards can cause food to become contaminated, with potentially fatal consequences.


Training your employees with our online system provides a greater awareness of the dangers that poor food safety standards pose. It considers how food safety risks arise and how to control and prevent them.

Manual Handling Training

Incorrect manual handling is one of the most common causes of injury at work. Manual Handling Operations Regulations were introduced to combat this problem. 


The regulations lay out duties for both employees and employers. They give a general requirement that employees must be trained to manually handle correctly, including the use of any equipment their employer provides to handle loads safely.

Courses

  • Manual Handling – £35

Working at Height Training

This course is aimed at anyone that undertakes work at height. It’s not about how far you can climb, but how far you can fall. ‘Falls’ don’t just mean people falling from heights. If materials or equipment fall, that presents an equally dangerous hazard to anyone below.


Working at height training applies to a range of situations. These include the following areas:

  • Platforms 
  • Ladders
  • Scaffolds
  • Stages
  • Deep Trenches

These are covered by health and safety legislation. Chief among these is the Work at Height Regulations 2005. These regulations confer legal duties on employers and employees to assess, control, and minimise risks and hazards from working at a height. A range of topics are covered, including the following: 

  • The dangers of working at height
  • The regulations
  • The hierarchy of controls
  • Assessing risk

Courses

  • Working at Height – £35

Working Safely Training

Working safely is in the interest and concern of all staff. Although most of the legal duties fall to the employer, health and safety law is one of the few pieces of legislation that places duties on the employee as well. There are three reasons for managing risk at work that bring benefit for all concerned:

  • Moral - Not causing harm to work colleagues.
  • Legislative - The law requires it.
  • Financial - All accidents incur a cost to both parties.

Workers have an expectation to go home at the end of the working day without harm. Most workers feel that accidents are something that only happens to other people. The reality is that too many workers are coming to harm by not observing health and safety laws. That’s where we come in. 


The course covers why we should work safely, defines hazard and risk, identifies common hazards, and improves safety performance. Training is a big part of changing attitudes towards taking risks in the workplace and it makes a real difference.

  • Working Safely – £65

Safeguarding Training

Every one of us has basic human rights. Chief among these is the right to be healthy and happy. You should be treated well, regardless of race, age, gender, or location. When these rights are abused in some way it’s wrong, and it is therefore vital that guidelines, policies, and procedures are followed. This enables everyone, without exception, to live a life in which these basic values and rights are maintained and upheld.

Courses

  • Safeguarding Children – £35
  • Safeguarding Adults – £35

Positive Handling in Schools

Knowing when and how to act in a difficult situation is the difference between a positive outcome and a potentially career ending prosecution. This course starts with examples and statistics that highlight the seriousness and extent of aggressive pupil behaviour. It then goes on to explain how to identify the stages of aggression, and provides tips on how to de-escalate a pupil before they lash out. It also looks at where the law stands on this subject and aids with best practice if you ever do need to restrain a pupil.
