Health and safety training

Our trainers are active health and safety consultants. When they aren't training they are advising companies on health and safety compliance, strategy and implementation. This gives them a unique, practical understanding of the training they provide. Read our blog for insights and expert opinion from our trainers.

Not sure what training you need? We recommend the accredited NEBOSH National General Certificate as a good starting point for health and safety training. The IOSH Managing Safely course also provides excellent knowledge to prevent workplace accidents.
