Southampton based Health and Safety Training and Consultancy company, HCS Safety Ltd, are proud to have signed the official Armed Forces Covenant in a pledge to support Armed Forces personnel and veterans.

The Government-backed scheme was established to encourage businesses to recognise the value that serving personnel, veterans and military families contribute to the country, not just during their military careers but also once they return to civilian life.

Over the years HCS Safety Ltd have developed a great working relationship with the Armed Forces Community. We have recruited a number of former service personnel into key roles within the company. With each branch of the UK Armed Forces represented amongst our staff and regular freelance tutors we find ourselves well placed to serve the needs and demands of the Armed Forces community and offer a helping hand to those personnel about to transition to civilian life.

As well as our accreditations with the UKs leading H&S governing bodies we also offer the service leaver the chance to use Individual Resettlement Grants, Standard Learning Credits and ELCAS funding (Provider ID 3286) to enhance their career prospects and employability with courses from NEBOSH, IOSH and the CITB amongst others.

Kev is joining us for two weeks where he will be shadowing our advisors as they go about their daily tasks. This will furnish Kev with valuable work place experience across all aspects of Health and Safety.
