Health and Safety Training Services

Supporting you by delivering excellent training

Our courses have excellent feedback – see the latest course feedback from the students.

Remember 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“. This is 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.

Prices for Our Main Courses
Prices for courses are available on request and are subject to change without notice (though we will endeavour to give at least a one month lead in time for changes). Once agreed with us, the prices we quote will be fixed for six months regardless of any increases.

Partner courses

Safety 4 HEd LLP works with other organisations to provide additional courses. The following courses can be arranged with our partners for delivery on your sites or in an general open session.

  • IOSH courses (delivered at Newcastle University or at your workplace)
  • Directing Safely (one day course)
  • Working Safely (one day course)
  • Managing Safely (four day course)

Prices for Our Partner Courses

Prices for courses are available on request and are subject to change without notice (though we will endeavour to give at least a one month lead in time for changes). Once agreed with us, the prices we quote will be fixed for one month regardless of any subsequent increases. We are subject to price changes from our partner organisations and so cannot provide as generaous price protection as we do with our main courses.

Bespoke Courses

Safety 4 HEd LLP can also provide bespoke courses to suit your needs. With an extensive range of topics (much wider than those listed above), we have the experience in tailoring and producing high quality materials, and adapting standard courses, to suit your needs.
If we are unable to provide you with what you want, we will seek a competent specialist provider for you.

Prices for Our Bespoke Courses

These are agreed on a case-by-case basis. Quotes will be valid for one month and will be held once agreed regardless of any cost increases.

On-Line courses

The following are very short courses and modules that have been developed for use on line. They require no sign in or registration of any sort and the page addresses can be linked to from any other site. Please do not copy these materials (you have no need to, they are free to access) as they will be changed and improved upon over time. If you would like to see other free to access modules on this site please send your suggestions to
Safety Signs (this is currently still on the old website).
A quick module to explain the rules behind safety signs and to test that you have understood them sufficiently to interpret signs correctly. This course also helps you to identify the right types of sign to use (or design) for your site.
