Training and courses for Health and Safety in the working environment

Health and Safety compliance is not only the law, but is necessary in order for businesses to be efficient, productive and successful. Employees that are happy, healthy and feel safe in their working environment work more effectively, than those not protected from injury or accidents.

Depending on the industry, the working environment will be different, thus there is no general rule for all businesses to follow - and risk assessments must be carried out to determine the type of training that is required.

  • work / lifestyle balancing
  • stress management
  • career coaching
  • leisure and welfare activities
  • equality and diversity
