As we get into this new year, we’ve had a smashing start by completing one each of all the CITB Site Safety Plus courses (SMSTS / SMSTS Refresher / SSSTS / SSSTS Refresher / Health & Safety Awareness and Director’s Role for H & S). It is a real honour that these 103 people put their trust in us to get them through these challenging qualifications, and a testament to the hard work of our delegates and the tutors (in this case Mr Leon Maidment GradIOSH and Mr David Hilton Tech IOSH) for supporting them all the way.
Last year at HCS Safety we saw 6000 delegates leave our premises with an enhanced knowledge base in this vital subject of Health and Safety, at all levels from basic to degree level. That’s a lot of people who are better equipped and better informed about the hazards they and their colleagues face, not to mention better qualified to move forwards in their careers. Our training calendar for 2019 includes increased capacity for many of our most popular courses, including IOSH Working Safely, IOSH Managing Safely and IOSH Leading Safely, as well as the CITB Site Safety Plus favourites. Alongside these we are proud to provide some new additions in the vital field of Mental Health and Occupational Stress.
We recognise our duty as the South’s favourite safety training provider and consultancy to be there when you need us; so not only can you rely on us to run the courses we advertise, but to offer the best facilities possible in which to run them. If you’ve noticed the scaffolding up on our building, recently, you can see that we are investing in our premises, and despite the uncertainty of the times, we promise we will be here for you come what may.
Take care out there, everyone – and if you need us, you know where we are.
