Our Client Support Service
Long term contracts to provide a bespoke health and safety support service to our clients – depending on their specific needs. Furthermore, the contract spreads the cost of the service over monthly standing order payments. Therefore, providing peace of mind that there will be somebody there to help you if things go wrong. Subscribing to a service contract means that you can ask for help as much as you need – all included in the small monthly fee.
How much? That depends on what you want. All our services are tailored to suit you, but that does not mean expensive. Support packages start from as little as £100 per month and for charities this can be considerably less. Also unlike many other companies we do not lock you in for long terms. As a result your contract is in your hands.
On top of that, all our contracted Clients get a minimum of 1/3 off our normal prices for any additional services. However, because the service is so generous there are very few additional items to pay for.
In line with excellence we also help save you money with Free Materials for our Clients.
Bespoke Health and Safety Training Courses
We have a range of bespoke training courses – tailored to suit your specific needs, as well as being able to offer access to the standard IOSH and NEBOSH courses through our contacts.
Our courses include short sessions (of only an hour) to full day courses. We also do practical sessions (such as Evacuation Chair training in your workplace, using your chairs at the location they will be needed) or purely theoretical lectures when needed.
Vincent Theobald-Vega is a qualified instructor in many areas (such as Manual Handling) plus a qualified teacher, holding the Cert Ed (LLS) teaching qualification.
HSE says off-the-shelf training is a waste of money
All our training is Bespoke as Standard. The HSE have been urging employers to ditch off the shelf training. The Safety and Health Practitioner magazine expressed this as “Simplistic and ‘off-the-shelf’ training for manual handling is a ‘waste of time and money’, according to the Health and Safety Executive“.
Why? Because simple training, that does not take regard of the actual workplace, will always fall short, not addressing the needs or protections of that workplace.
If all you handle are bags and pipes, why should people be taught to pick up empty boxes. The methods are different, the solutions are different, and the people involved will see through the shortcomings of the off-the-shelf approach.
Our training costs no more and provides you with bespoke courses, tailored to your people at your site. Contact us for more information on what we can do for you.
