IOSH Training Courses
We are an IOSH approved training provider and proud of our association with the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), the world’s largest health and safety organisation with over 40,000 members in 85 countries.
“I’ve been on a first aid course at the uni of Bristol for the last 3 days with a trainer called Matt. I just wanted to email to say that he gave us some of the best first aid training I’ve ever experienced (and honestly, some of the best teaching I’ve ever received full stop) – everyone I spoke to during the course agreed with me that he was engaging, patient, personable and knowledgeable. The time passed so quickly because it was clear how much he cared and how much he wanted to give us his knowledge, not just because it was his job but because he, personally, wanted us to be well equipped to give people first aid in real life. Thank you for sending him! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to my colleagues, friends and family, both as a trainer and a first aider.”

Our ‘in-house’ course programmes are the most cost effective option if you’ve a number of staff requiring training, and in many cases can be adapted to include reference to local policy, practice and documentation. These courses can be delivered either at any suitable venue or you can hire our purpose-built training centre located in Warmley, Bristol, whichever is best suited to your needs.
We also run a rolling programme of ‘open courses’ which are particularly suited for individuals or organisations that only have a few delegates or those looking to release small groups of staff at a time.
Not every course can be 'off the shelf'.
Our tailored health and safety training is aimed at meeting the needs of customers who have specific subjects to be covered within their health and safety staff training.
