Did you know….. the latest UK Health and Safety Statistics show:
- 2.1 million people were suffering from an illness they believed was caused or made worse by their current or past work.
- 229 workers were killed at work, a rate of 0.8 per 100 000 workers.
- 136,771 other injuries to employees were reported under RIDDOR, a rate of 517.9 per 100 000 employees.
- 299,000 reportable injuries occurred, according to the Labour Force Survey, a rate of 1000 per 100, 000 workers.

Implementing best practice health and safety measures does not need to be expensive, time consuming or complicated. In fact safer, more efficient working practices can often save money and, more importantly, can save lives.
Available Training Courses
REHIS Elementary Health & Safety Programme
As an approved training centre for REHIS we deliver innovative, energised and engaging training that is directly related to every day working life. We share industry specific examples to ensure learning is enhanced and to encourage your employees to directly transfer new learning and best practices back to your business.
REHIS Risk Assessment Workshop
This half day workshop is suitable for all employees in any job role. During the workshop candidates identify the hazards which cause more common accidents and harm to peoples’ health. Candidates carry out work based assessment to clearly outline what is relevant to your workplace, highlight the legal responsibilities of employers and employees, identify best practices and demonstrate how to carry out risk assessments and manage risk in your organisation.
Manual Handling Training
Under the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992, every employer must provide suitable manual handling training. Many companies are under the impression that this does not apply to them because they are primarily an office environment. This is a misconception that can have serious consequences. Most back and spinal pain is caused by continual bad lifting, twisting and stretching and not single trauma injuries. Our training includes the use of theory, props, tuition and practical lifting techniques to teach you how to lift, carry, move and transport objects safely. Courses can be tailored to your exact needs, from an office to a production/warehouse facility. This is carried out at your premises so avoiding any disruption to your business. All that is required is a small office/room.
