Health and Safety Training Courses

Provided by qualified consultants, our range of health and safety training courses cover both general workplace safety, together with focused training on individual subjects.

“The general consensus is that the course was very good with excellent training props, particularly for catastrophic bleeds, blocked airway & use of defibrillators.  A very worthwhile & relevant course.”


“Brilliant pace and refreshers are so important, especially when it has been a while since training – it is good for your own confidence!”


“Very friendly and knowledgeable instructor. I appreciated that the course was tailored to our needs”
