Until the causes of workplace accidents and ill health are understood and managed, improvements will not be made in the protection of employees from work activity hazards. Employers already have a duty to investigate and report a number of such matters and that duty is being extended to cover all workplace accidents, occurrences of work related ill health etc.

There are more than 3,000 deaths each year in the UK from asbestos related diseases and this number is expected to continue to rise. Thousands of tonnes of asbestos products were used in building construction in the past and much of it is still in place. Carpenters, electricians, plumbers and others doing maintenance or refurbishment works may be at risk where asbestos products are disturbed. If you own or are responsible for the management of a workplace, whether a factory, warehouse or office which may contain asbestos products, you need to consider risks of exposure to people using or doing works in the building. This half-day course will help you to identify, assess and manage asbestos products in your premises.

Current legislation, The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, applies to all workplaces regardless of the number of employees and requires employers to provide adequate training in fire awareness for all members of their staff. Our online fire safety training courses are aimed at all employees to assist them in identifying and reducing the risk that fire presents in the workplace.

The course will provide delegates with an understanding of the designer’s responsibilities in relation the revised CDM Regulations and with particular emphasis on the duty to eliminate risk.

The new Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) came into force in April 2015 for Scotland, England and Wales.

Our programme introduces delegates to the foundations of CDM which are to deliver good health and safety practices in the construction industry by helping delegates sensibly plan the work so the risks involved are managed from the outset. We also cover the new requirements introduced in 2015, consider how CDM 2015 links with project management principles and how to apply the regulations in practice.

The Control Of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations place duties on employers to manage and control the use or production of substances in the workplace to protect employees and others from harmful effects. This half-day seminar style workshop looks at practical ways to address the issues and conduct suitable and substantive assessments of the levels of risk posed to individuals within the working environment.

The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR) place duties on employers and the self-employed to protect employees, contractors and others from the risks from fires and explosions related to dangerous substances stored and used in the workplace.

This shot half-day course explains the duties that DSEAR places on employers and the actions they need to take to comply with them.

Our online Fire Extinguisher training provides delegates with the ability to identify which fire extinguisher to use in which situation. When a fire starts in the workplace, every second counts, so this type of training is an essential element of your company’s Health and Safety requirements.

Under The Fire (Scotland) Act 2005, employers, property owners, landlords and other duty holders are required to assess fire risks in the workplace and implement appropriate fire safety precautions including raising the alarm and evacuating the premises.

Well trained and competent staff are the best defence against the threat of fire and the most effective way of managing alarm incidents and evacuation of your premises. This practical seminar workshop will provide delegates with a thorough understanding of fire safety issues and prepare them to confidently conduct fire risk assessments in their own workplace.
