HEALTH & SAFETY TRAINING

Wiltshire, Dorset, Hampshire & Somerset

The competence of individuals is vital, whether they are employers, managers, supervisors, employees or contractors, especially those with safety-critical roles. It ensures they recognise the risks in their activities and can apply the right measures to control and manage those risks.

 

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.
