Intermediate Certificate in Supervising Health & Safety

Health and safety involves reducing the risks of accident and ill health associated with work activities, whether they affect employees, employers, the self-employed, visitors or the public.

Accidents and illnesses can result in permanent disability or death, as well as short term incapacity for work. The supervisor is in an ideal and very responsible position where employees can be influenced, monitored and trained, and managers can be informed, persuaded, encouraged or pressured into providing for better health and safety standards.

What do our clients say about us?

When we were told that we ought to consider having a training course developed for our company I thought that we would not be able to afford it. I could not believe it when Dennis told me it would cost me no more than any of the other courses on offer. Our staff really enjoyed the session and I could see that they wanted to improve the standards of hygiene straight away.
