Safety at Work - as easy as ABC

Workplace safety applies to all companies, whatever their size. Employers must ensure that all staff, contractors and volunteers under their care must know how to work safely without risk to themselves or others. The management has to provide clear instructions regarding safe working practices, with information and adequate training as appropriate.

Depending on the work environment, basic information or instructions may be all that is required. The best way to demonstrate that health and safety practices are being taken seriously is to provide training via a specialist who is geared up to cover all aspects on your behalf, e.g. relevance, effectiveness, feedback. Keeping training records will help you to identify when refresher training might be needed.

Our client ABC WorkSafe has a long and successful history of providing high quality training courses at reasonable cost throughout the southern half of the UK. They have launched a 'Business Special' to suit most companies with at least a handful of staff.

Three certificated 'Work Safe' courses, each two hours long, which cover the main topics for First Aid, Manual Handling and Fire Safety - 12 people per session.
