Crucial Health and Safety Training

Improving the safety of your working environment reduces the risk of finding yourself in a legal battle. Our health and safety training, in Reading, Berkshire, teaches your staff the importance of working safely.


On average, over a five-year period, 220 people are killed each year in accidents at work, while more than one million people are injured, and more than two million suffer illnesses caused by, or exacerbated by, their work. Preventing accidents and ill-health caused by work is a key priority for everyone involved with a business.


The human element, alongside occupational and environmental factors, majorly contributes to work accidents. Ignorance, complacency, haste, and distraction all contribute to an unsafe working environment. Training can have a positive impact on the working practices of a workforce. If your employees are informed and understand health and safety actions, they are more likely to follow safe working procedures. 

This will help to reduce time lost acidents and inproves productivity.


As the owner or manager of a business, you know just how valuable competent employees are. Providing health and safety information and training helps you to ensure that your employees are not injured or made ill by the work that they do, and develop a positive health and safety culture where working safely becomes second nature to them. It will also:

• Increase Productivity • Increase Profitability • Increase Workforce Morale  Reduce Absenteeism

Effective Training

Effective training will contribute towards making your employees competent in health and safety, help your business avoid the distress that accidents and ill-health cause, and help you avoid the financial costs of accidents and occupational ill health. Don’t forget that your insurance doesn’t cover all these costs, and damaged products, reduced production, and de-motivated staff are the result.


Whether you feel it is integral or not, it is a legal requirement for your staff to be health-and-safety-trained. The law requires that you provide whatever information, instruction, and training necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of your employees.

We can also provide IOSH accredited courses: Managing Safely: a 4 or 5-day course for managers, shift leaders, supervisors, etc; and Working Safely: a 1-day course for any employee whose work exposes them to risk.

 Working Safely is a one-day course for staff from any sector with no supervisory or managerial responsibility. It provides grounding in the essentials of health and safety in all industries including construction– everyone at work should have an understanding of why they must ‘work safely’ and this course offers exactly that. 

 Who is the Managing Safely Refresher for?

This one-day course is for delegates who have already completed the full Managing Safely course. Delegates get to refresh their knowledge on the key parts of the full Managing Safely course by relating them to a plan-do-check-act safety and health management system, with leadership at the heart of it all.

It is recommended that refreshers are completed every 3 years. 

If your certificate ran out several years ago you can still sit the refresher. If you are not sure contact me via the contact page by clicking here
