Safety Awareness

Safety Awareness Training at Providence Training, Neyland. Pembrokeshire

GENERAL

We are surrounded by things that have the potential to cause us harm. These hazards can take many forms from lifting a box of printer paper to using a chemical.

Employers must provide suitable and adequate training for any tasks that may put their employees in harms way. Below you will find details of the courses we offer which address the most common areas and fulfill an employers obligation under Law. Please note, however, that whilst these courses address safe working practices and legal requirements, some roles may require employers to carry out additional on-the-job training before an employee is deemed competent eg. familiarisation with  mechanical lifting aids or tuition in grinding using an abrasive wheel.

Providence Training’s Safety Awareness courses are scheduled regularly at our Centre at Neyland, Pembrokeshire.¬† All are also available to be booked as a company or organisation specific course which could be held at our Centre, at your premises or site or any suitable third party venue.
