IOSH is the world’s biggest professional health and safety organisation which sets standards and support for health and safety.

Following on from the audit, we can work with you to monitor your health and safety, checking in with you on a regular basis to make sure that you are completing any actions identified in your audits. We can visit your premises and carry out Fire and Health and Safety Risk Assessments and provide you with the relevant documentation
We ensure that your health and safety procedures are up-to-date and risk assessments completed and can then assist with writing and reviewing risk assessments as and when they crop up e.g., maternity, Covid19, mental wellbeing, stress.
We deliver training either at our well-equipped training centre or at your premises (depending upon the numbers) and can ensure that you meet your legal obligations, and your team are trained to minimise your liability in the event of an incident or accident.
Our face-to-face training includes the following:
- Emergency First Aid at Work
- Paediatric First Aid
- Health & Safety in the Workplace
- Fire Safety
- Manual Handling
- Food Safety
- Supervising First Aid for Mental Health
As well as face-to-face training for health and safety, we offer an extensive range of E-learning courses for your employees to complete; providing certificates to verify that the learners have the necessary health and safety knowledge and that they understand the responsibilities they have for health and safety in the workplace.
Reward & Recognition / Employee Benefits
Reward and recognition is the activity employers adopt to identify exceptional performance and encourage specific values or behaviours. Reward and recognition programmes can certainly help with better engagement and implementing positive change in the workplace if they are formulated, written, introduced and applied in the correct way. Whether you’re looking to reward staff for their hard work, enhance your employee retention rates, or attract more of the right candidates, we can help.
We can work with you to devise such programmes recognising that candidates and employees do not only look at salary and financial reward; that they value factors such as flexible working hours, online learning opportunities or fun days out of the office.
Once we have established what is important to your business and employees and have devised the Reward and Recognition programme, we can help you make contact with our various trusted partners to assist with implementation of initiative such as shopping discounts, Employee Assistance Programmes, Medical Insurance, Mental Wellbeing Apps and many more.
