Health & Safety Training Courses

Please contact us to book a place on your preferred course or to discuss dates for a course at your workplace.

The Safety Centre is working in partnership with a local company to provide an extensive range of Fire Safety Training courses that enable organisations both to fulfil all legal obligations and to protect their infrastructure and employees. Courses are provided for all businesses, local authorities, other non-commercial organisations and schools.

Fire Safety Training is an essential requirement for every organisation to protect employees, visitors or residents and to ensure the integrity of the workplace. It is also a legal obligation under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2006. Fire kills around 30 people a year in the workplace in the UK and the costs associated with fire cause serious disruption to business, and many businesses do not recover from a devastating fire.

Fire Safety Training is an important part of any company’s mantra – that’s why it makes sense to arrange training with the experts. All of the courses are run by experienced, retired Fire Officers who have been carefully selected for their training skills and expertise in fire related matters. Some have experience of enforcement action as well. This gives you the benefit of the security and peace of mind that training has been delivered by people with experience of fire in different environments and circumstances.

In addition to a variety of standard courses. There are other courses available, designed for organisations with specific fire safety risks, such as warehouses, hotels and construction sites. Training provided will be effective and relevant and can be tailored to meet your specific needs. For some businesses, we have bespoke training, centred on your procedures and requirements.

This course is ideal for smaller workplaces that present few health and safety risks.
