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 absolutely 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 in 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.
We have an in-house curriculum team who develop our Health and Safety courses based on their own wealth of knowledge and guidance from national bodies. These include:
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE)
National Back Exchange
The National Health Service (NHS)
UK Asbestos Training Association (UKATA)
The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH)
The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH)
Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS)
First Response Training is accredited by Advantage Accreditation. Before learners receive their certificates, they will need to complete an assessment. This ensure they have retained and understood the course content and are competent in the course topic.
