Health & Safety Training
The value of effective health and safety training is clear. As well as tangible benefits to your organisation, such as reduced downtime, fewer absences and a strong reputation as a responsible employer, providing your workforce with information and training on occupational health and safety is also a legal requirement.
It therefore makes sense to enrol yourself and your employees in appropriate health and safety training courses, not only to enhance productivity and profitability but to demonstrate that you have taken genuine steps to reduce risk across your organisation.

We can deliver the following Health & Safety training courses
Our IOSH range of expert-led training courses are accredited by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), the world’s largest health and safety membership body, while our Ellis Whittam created training courses cover important risk management topics such as Accident Investigation and COSHH. All can be delivered exclusively to your organisation by time-served safety practitioners.
IOSH Safety for Executives & Directors
Do you have overall operational and strategic accountability for an organisation? If so, are you confident you understand your legal responsibilities when it comes to protecting employees and others?
Our IOSH Managing Safely for Executives & Directors course is an excellent demonstration of your commitment to employee wellbeing and will help you to minimise risk, ensure compliance and make better use of time and resources.
IOSH Managing Safely
Keen to help managers and supervisors understand their health and safety responsibilities and how they can influence, control and monitor risk to improve issues in the workplace?
Our IOSH Managing Safely course results in formal IOSH certification and gives delegates the skills to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of colleagues and anyone else affected by their organisation’s activities.
IOSH Working Safely
Looking to equip your employees with fundamental awareness of health and safety as required by the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999?
Reduce incidents and accidents, minimise the risk of prosecution and personal injury claims, and demonstrate your commitment to the wellbeing of your workforce with our IOSH-approved Working Safely course.
IOSH Managing Health & Safety Risks in the Education Sector
The Education sector presents a variety of unique hazards and risks.
This exclusive course has been specially designed by Ellis Whittam based on our extensive knowledge and experience of working with schools, colleges and other education and training providers. Largely equivalent to the IOSH Managing Safely course, it focuses solely on the Education sector and is compressed into two days in recognition of the limited time you have available.
Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Training
Every year, thousands of workers are made ill by hazardous substances, leading to lung disease, asthma, skin conditions and even cancer.
Our COSHH training course is designed to raise awareness of these risks, promote the safe handling and use of hazardous substances, and help your organisation meet the requirements of health and safety law.
Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Training
The use of display screen equipment (DSE) has become an indispensable part of everyday life. However, with musculoskeletal disorders now the second highest cause of work-related ill health, employers must take action to mitigate the impact on people and productivity.
Our DSE training course will raise employees’ awareness of the potential health and safety risks associated with DSE use and how to manage them effectively.
Manual Handling Awareness Training
Lifting heavy boxes, stacking shelves, or moving items across a workspace might be part and parcel of an employee’s role, but these tasks can result in injury if not carried out correctly and with an awareness of the risks.
Accident Investigation Training
Accident investigation is an essential component of proactive health and safety management. Without it, unsafe practices or working conditions will go unchecked, putting your people and your organisation at further risk.
Our Accident Investigation training course will enable participants to adopt a systematic approach to scrutinising workplace safety incidents, determining why an incident happened and the steps required to prevent reoccurrence.
Taking time out for employee training isn’t always possible. Nevertheless, as an employer, you want to know that your staff are fully equipped to undertake their duties confidently and safely – and that your organisation is protected – without affecting productivity or spending a fortune.
A convenient and powerful alternative to classroom-based training, our online e-Learning courses incorporate videos and interactive testing for impactful and engaging employee training.
