Health and Safety Training Courses
IOSH "Safety, Health and Environment for Construction Workers".
We offer IOSH Safety, Health and Environment for Construction Workers, a one day training course recognised by the Construction Skills Certification Scheme as the equivalent to a Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment.
Apart from the obvious legal and financial benefits that come with giving health, safety and environment instruction to employees, businesses can also enjoy enhanced productivity and satisfaction among personnel by keeping the workplace safe.
Employees in a safe work environment can focus better on their tasks, simply because they do not have to worry as much about their personal safety. This enhanced focus will eventually lead to better work output and quality, ultimately increasing productivity and consequently, the company's profits in the long run.
Health and Safety Management
Under the law employers are responsible for health and safety management.
It is an employer's duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees and other people who might be affected by their business and employers must do whatever is reasonably practicable to achieve this.
This means making sure that workers, and others, are protected from anything that may cause harm and effectively controlling any risks to injury or health that could arise in the workplace.
Employers must consult employees on health and safety issues. Consultation must be either direct or through a safety representative that is either elected by the workforce or appointed by a trade union.
If you think health and safety has to be complicated - it doesn't.
Managing health and safety doesn't have to be complicated, costly or time-consuming. In fact it's easier than you think. For many businesses, all that's required is a basic series of practical tasks that protect people from harm and at the same time protect the future success and growth of your business.
As an employer, you must appoint someone competent to help you meet your health and safety duties.
A competent person is someone with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to manage health and safety.
Quality Management Systems
Quality management system (QMS) standards establish a framework for how a business manages its key processes. They can help whether your business offers products or services and regardless of your size or industry. They can also help by ensuring processes meet recognised standards, clarifying business objectives and avoiding expensive mistakes.
Implementing a QMS can help your business to:
- Achieve greater consistency in the activities involved in providing products or services
- Increase efficiency by improving use of time and resources Improve customer satisfaction
- Constantly improve your products, processes and systems
The ISO 9000 series of standards is the main set of International Standards applying to the management of quality systems.
It includes ISO 9001, the key internationally agreed standard for a QMS.
Businesses can be certified against this standard when they meet its requirements.
Achieving ISO 9001 certification could lead to new business.
Not only can it help distinguish you from competitors, but many large businesses and public sector organisations require suppliers to be ISO 9001 certified.
It's a globally recognised achievement, so may lead to a higher profile and increased business.
