Health and Safety

Crystal Clear Compliance

Our concept is to provide small to medium sized businesses with safety solutions to facilitate legal compliance and good practice in their industry. Crystal clear compliance is achieved by working with businesses to design safety systems and deliver technical training to promote implementation. Imparting safety knowledge can change behaviour, reducing sickness absence, accidents, avoiding fines and prosecution.

Invest in the Future of Your Company

Don’t just buy a safety manual to decorate your shelves, because by the time the dust has settled it will be out of date and you will not be legally compliant. Safety legislation is moving rapidly towards self-regulation, so why not invest in your own employees and build a workforce that puts procedures into practice, able to manage change.

Promote a Safety Culture in Your Company

Break down the barriers between learning theory and practical application, by having training delivered in your working environment. Research has shown that this will increase the likelihood that safety behaviours will change, as it is easier to visualise implementation in familiar surroundings.

Aim Higher

With systems in place to reflect your safety needs and employees trained on implementation, you are ready to update these essential foundations when you receive our complimentary legal updates.

Emergency First Aid in the workplace for the appointed person

It is a legal requirement to ensure that you have made adequate first aid provisions in the workplace. Where an employer’s assessment for First Aid needs identifies that a first aider is not necessary,the minimum requirement for an employer is to appoint a person to take charge of the first aid arrangements. This includes looking after the equipment and facilities and calling the emergency services when required.


By the end of the course, candidates will be able to demonstrate the essential knowledge and skills needed to deal with life threatening emergencies in the workplace. Successful students will receive a certificate recognised by the Health & Safety Executive, which is valid for 3 years.
