We can deliver occupational health and safety and fire safety training at a site of your choice. We can also develop bespoke courses with your company branding and images.

In-house training courses


Our online e-learning courses provide an interactive multimedia approach to health and safety training. They are easy to use and your organisation will benefit from:

  • Reduced training costs, as there is no need for trainers, venues, refreshments and administration.
  • Staff not having to be absent from their place of work. No travel is involved, so it reduces your organisation’s carbon footprint.
  • Staff can take the course at their convenience and at their own pace.

Blended learning

Our blended learning courses combine:

  • e-learning, which covers the theory of health, safety and fire safety
  • practical exercises led by our team of professional trainers.

Delegates can undertake the e-learning when it suits them before they attend a pre-arranged practical exercise.
