Health and safety training

More than 200 people are killed each year in accidents at work, and more than one million people are injured, according to statistics from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). In addition, more than two million suffer illnesses caused by, or made worse by, their work.

Preventing accidents and ill health caused by work is a key priority for everyone in the workplace.

Baily Garner Health & Safety recognises that individual clients have different training needs. We offer innovative and extensive training packages covering health and safety issues from site management to working at height.

The law requires employers to provide whatever information, instruction and training is needed to ensure the health and safety of your employees, so far as is reasonably practicable,. We recognise the diverse range of industry needs and are here to help you to comply with the law. All our tutors combine their professional qualifications with real experience gained working as health and safety practitioners and wherever possible we match their experience to your industry sector.

The range and scope of our experience allows us to offer a variety of health and safety training courses, some of which are detailed below. We also offer bespoke courses. For further information on any of our training courses, please contact Emma Charter.

Fire safety awareness

This course is ideal for all managers, supervisors and safety representatives. Candidates will learn about the basic principles of fire, relevant legislation and preventative measures to reduce the risk of fire. The course will also look at fire detection, fire warning and fire fighting equipment, means of escape and where possible will be tailored towards the specifics of your workplace. Finally the course will look at the appointment of fire marshals, fire drills, roll call and provision for the infirm and disabled.

IOSH managing safely

This five-day course provides managers and supervisors with a broad based knowledge of health and safety and safe systems of work. Candidates who successfully complete the course are awarded an IOSH Managing Safely Certificate (IOSH recommend this is renewed every two years).

Site manager's safety training scheme (SMSTS)

Baily Garner Health & Safety offer the site manager's safety training scheme (SMSTS), one of the most widely regarded qualifications for site managers. Many employers insist that all their site managers hold the certificate.

Our course is one day a week for a five-week period. During the course, candidates must pass core exercises. At the end of the training, they must sit a multiple-choice examination in order to qualify for the SMSTS certificate.

IOSH working safely

This course is ideal for all employees in all organisations. It is designed to ensure that workers understand their safety related responsibilities and the importance of their actions. This is fundamental, as no safety policy will succeed without the involvement of the whole workforce. As with all of our in-house courses, it is tailored towards your organisation and runs on a day release basis for flexibility.

Health and safety CSCS awareness

As part of the CITB's aim to raise health and safety standards this course helps candidates prepare for the health and safety test (not part of the course).

CDM awareness

The Construction (Design & Management) Regulations came into force in April 2007. The new simplified regulations revise and bring the 1994 CDM Regulations and the Construction Health, Safety and Welfare Regulations together in one legal code. We are ideally placed to communicate the changes to safety managers and clients as well as offer practical advice on how to comply, while realising the business benefits.

Asbestos awareness

Asbestos remains the single biggest cause of work related deaths in the UK. This course enables those responsible for the building, repair and maintenance of properties to identify and deal with asbestos, and meet their legal ‘duty to manage’. Candidates will learn how to identify the locations where asbestos is commonly found, the types of asbestos, associated health risks and practical controls for asbestos safety.

Work at height

This course uses the recently revised Working at Height Regulations as a basis from which to tackle an organisation’s specific height related issues. It covers appropriate equipment, from ladders to mobile elevated working platforms.

Workplace risk assessment

The main requirement under health and safety legislation is for employers to conduct risk assessments. With an emphasis on practical exercises within your workplace, this course aims to ensure that delegates are aware of this legal requirement, understand the aims and objectives of risk assessments, know how to identify hazards and categorise risks and can conduct assessments using a variety of techniques.
