Courses Run in Birmingham

Machinery Safety Basics

Everyone who works with machinery, whether directly or indirectly, need to understand the basics of machinery safety but not everyone needs to know all the details relating to the design. This course covers those activities regulated by the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) and provides delegates with a thorough knowledge of this legislation.  The course will also give practical advice on how to evaluate the safety of existing machines and how to measure and evaluate noise and vibration risks.

Machinery Risk Assessment Essentials

Machinery risk assessment is also now explicitly required by the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008. However many people still struggle to know what is suitable and sufficient to satisfy these regulations. This training course gives delegates practical hands-on experience of conducting a machinery risk assessment using structured techniques which demystify the process given in BS EN ISO 12100: 2010.

Site and Transport Safety

Vehicle movements and loading and unloading vehicles can be some of the most dangerous work activities organisations carry out. 
This course will help you understand the legal requirements of both road traffic law and workplace safety law, how and why things go wrong, and how you can take practicable steps to reduce risk in your business.


Stress: from Intervention to Prevention - Improving Your Approach to Tackling Work-related Stress

A one-day event to reflect upon, re-evaluate and refine your current approach. Tackling workplace stress is becoming an important business topic, with many organisations realising that good mental health is just as important as good physical health. Many pioneering organisations are incorporating the topic within their wellbeing initiatives, helping to raise awareness of the issues as well as break down stigma. In the last few years initiatives such as mental health first aid, mindfulness and resilience training have become very commonplace interventions. And while such interventions are widely adopted, you also need to add a big dose of prevention into the mix.

Venues to be announced if not stated on the course webpage.
