Training Methods

Training Method Overview

All workers must fully understand and be responsible for health and safety in the workplace. Employers are legally obliged to provide training for their workforce.

So let’s make it enjoyable!

We usually provide either face-to-face or online training although we can write training manuals if specifically requested. Our eLearning courses are a mixture of videos, cartoons and text to keep trainees interested. Our face-to-face training is carried out by experienced qualified consultants who know how to engage their audience and get them to participate, while (of course) providing the knowledge required.

We spend time getting to know our clients before training their staff so that we can make each course bespoke to client needs. In this way we know that the trainees get the maximum benefit.

Training is so important to a successful health and safety system. One of the main control measures in Risk Asssessment is staff training. BUT you must be able to provide clear evidence that relevant and up to date training has been undertaken.

We offer a wide range of training:

1. Delivered to individuals or groups, this training is tailored exactly to your organisation’s needs. It typically comprises:

a. Training your workforce in your health and safety policy
b. Manual handling
c. Safe working at height
d. Fire safety
e. Organisation-specific training e.g. emergency evacuation procedures

All delegates receive a certificate of attendance.

2. Some of our training is accredited, providing your workforce with externally approved certificates:

a. First aid at work – 3 day and 1 day courses
b. Identification and use of fire extinguishers
c. Fire Marshall/Fire Warden course
d. Food Hygiene

We deliver this training on your premises, at our premises or in a rented training room.

Online training
Sometimes it’s easier to work at your own pace or in your own time. Sometimes a qualification is required as proof that you are able to carry out your work safely and in line with legislation.
We offer a suite of online courses, many of them RoSPA approved. Each delegate is issued with an access code and can then undertake the modules at his or her own pace. Once each module has been completed successfully a certificate is generated.

We offer discounted prices for subscribing clients or for bulk purchases.

Training manuals
Everyone learns differently e.g. by watching, by being taught face to face or by reading. Some of our clients prefer to have their training in the form of a manual. We can supply a bespoke printed manual covering most health and safety subjects which your workers can go through at their leisure. A test is provided at the back of each manual which the delegate completes and then returns to us for marking. Once the minimum score has been attained we will issue the certificate.

Periodically we will deliver training seminars. This is usually following a significant change in legislation and we want our clients to have the new laws explained to them in an easily-digestible form.

These seminars are open to everyone but we offer discounted prices to our subscribing clients.

I would just like to pass on my sincere thanks and appreciation for the help, advice, knowledge and professionalism of Westminster Compliance, and the speed of turnaround of each of our document submissions. I would not have been able to do it without you both, thank you. Good News, we passed first time again this year and received the certificate yesterday.

Despite your reassurances and confidence that nothing bad would result from this unfortunate incident, we were worried throughout the time the legal people were writing rather nasty letters. We will always trust your judgement and will always want you to look after our health and safety arrangements.
