Part 3 of the Fire and Rescue Services (Northern Ireland) Order 2006 and the Fire Safety Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2010 came into effect on 15 November 2010, simplifying existing Fire Safety legislation in non-domestic premises and reinforcing the modern risk based approach to fire prevention.

The Fire Services (Northern Ireland) Order 1984 was repealed on 15 November 2010 and the previous fire certification process has ceased. Existing premises that have previously been subjected to that Order will most likely be compliant in terms of their Fire Safety measures. However, it will now be necessary for those premises to have a current Fire Risk Assessment.

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 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. This course includes a practical interpretation of the new fire safety guidelines effective in Northern Ireland in November 2010.

Under The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 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. The aim is to simplify, rationalise and consolidate existing fire safety legislation. It will provide for a risk-based approach to fire safety allowing more efficient effective enforcement by the fire and rescue service. 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 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. This course includes a practical interpretation of the new fire safety guidelines effective in England since October 2006.

The Level 1 Award in Food Safety Course is designed to incorporate the fundamental food hygiene knowledge required by all food handlers. The programme covers a defined syllabus and is assessed by short tests consisting of multi-choice questions at the end of each module.

This course is deigned to give managers and supervisors an understanding of everyone's safety and health responsibilities in the workplace and to enable managers and supervisors to recognise how they can influence, control and monitor risk to improve safety and health issues in the workplace.

This two day course has been approved and Accredited by IOSH. It is designed specifically for those on construction sites who have responsibility for managing all forms and manner of temporary works. It has been designed to provide middle management, senior management and others who engage with contractors, with the confidence, skills and abilities to effectively facilitate and manage performance on site.



The requirement for 'responsible persons' to carry out training is a clear compliance with the Approved Code of Practice for the control of Legionella in water systems, L8. This course explains the background to Legionella, the potential risks associated with water systems and how these can be prevented or controlled. It helps users to understand the risk that Legionella poses and helps develop the systems and work-ing practices needed to stay ahead. It gives enough knowledge to get a Legionella control programme off the ground - or make confident, in-formed choices when commissioning others to take this on.

It will always be necessary for some people to work alone without any direct supervision. Employers have the responsibility of conducting a risk assessment on the risks of lone workers, but employees also have a responsibility to take reasonable care of themselves and others who may be affected by their work.

This lone working health and safety course will help you identify your legal obligations and to identify control measures that minimise risks.



It is a common misconception that when contractors work on your premises or site, you have no management control over their activities. This is not the case. Health & safety law requires the client organisation to have some responsibility for contractor's activities. Should an accident involving a contractor ever occur at your premises, then questions will be asked of you, the contractor and the contractors' employer regarding how their activities were managed. This comprehensive one-day programme includes: -
  • How to provide a safe place of work for the contractor
  • How to ensure that your own employees are not put at risk from the actions of a contracted contractor
  • Ensure that your employees do not act in a manner which may endanger the safety of contractors
  • Providing the contractor with information on the hazards and risks throughout the area where they will be conducting their work
  • Monitoring contractor's activities whilst on your premises
  • Signing in procedures and basic induction including familiarisation with your organisation's rules and Health and Safety Policy


This is a comprehensive one day introduction on effectively managing health and safety in the workplace. For managers and supervisors, health and safety needs to be managed as much as any other organisational discipline. Many organisations do not have the benefit of a professional health and safety advisor and must rely on line managers and supervisors to fill that role.

A third of all injuries in the workplace are the result of lifting or handling heavy or awkward loads. Injuries vary from mild aches and pains, to permanent disability and compensation. This is a hazard common to every workplace, whether an office, warehouse, factory or construction site. The Manual Handling Operations Regulations place responsibilities on employers to reduce injuries from manual handling and to conduct an assessment of handling operations that cannot be avoided. This seminar workshop looks at practical ways to meet these requirements.
