1.8 million people suffered a work-related illness in 2019-2020, and 36.8 million working days were lost due to work-related illness and injury (HSE). Health and Safety training is vital to ensure you and your workforce are safe and able to carry out effective work. First Response Training has a team of over 100 trainers with the relevant qualifications and experience to deliver Health and Safety courses throughout the UK. Our full suite of Health and Safety training courses is available below. This includes entry-level training for beginners and more advanced training for managers and supervisors. Once you have chosen your courses, your account manager will take care of all the details, including trainer travel and a venue if necessary.
The majority of First Response Training Health and Safety courses are available as traditional classroom courses, led by a trainer in-person. These courses can often be modified to suit remote, online webinars taking place via video conferencing software such as Zoom, GoTo Training, or Microsoft Teams. eLearning is available on some topics. Through eLearning, the learner can access the courses from anywhere with an internet connection, and complete the training in their own time without the need for a trainer. This is much more flexible than traditional delivery methods.
