The Law requires you to ensure Health & Safety at Work. We can assist you with Working at Height, Fork Lift, HIAB, Lorry Loading and Mobile Plant Staff Training.

Avoid workplace accidents and keep both your company name and your staff safe with safety training

According to the Health & Safety Executive, 10% of all accidents involving equipment at work, are caused by a lack of operator training. As an employer you have an obligation to ensure that all equipment operators and their supervisors are trained to approved standards. Call us on 01908 449 300 to arrange a training programme to get YOUR team up to standard!
