Plant Safety Training

Plant Safety Training is a vital aspect of industrial activity; in a hectic working environment it deals with areas that can often be unintentionally neglected. It’s a sad fact that too many companies and individuals learn to appreciate this after the event. Apart from the human cost, subsequent litigation can load substantial financial and time costs onto any operation. Our plant safety training activities use content created and delivered by our team of acknowledged experts. Their expertise, honed over many years involvement in safety assessment and training, provides your workforce with both the knowledge and confidence that’s vital for effective, progressive operations.

Our team appreciates each location and operation is unique, and our packages are carefully tailored to the environment, and can be delivered in-house - delivering a considerable cost saving. Our training majors on active participation by all those attending; allowing small groups to take part in relevant case studies and discussion groups. 

Plant Safety Audits

Plant Safety Audits

Thorough, objective plant safety audits on your own work environment can be difficult. Potential risks and hazards can be overlooked by non-professional assessors.

Depending on where you are based, the new regulations contain broadened definitions of persons with health and safety duties, along with an increased requirement for duty holders to consult with others. PCBUs are required to eliminate risks so far as is “reasonably practicable.” When assessing whether or not sufficient effort was made to eliminate risk, the act takes into consideration not only to what you know, but what you should know about risks and hazards in the workplace.

Plant Risk Training

Our plant risk training services cover a wide range of key areas vital to the safe and effective running of any industrial location. They also take into account the raft of requirements and regulations covering such operations, and allow those participating to assess their own operations with a clear and trained eye. Otherwise, it can be very easy to unwittingly overlook potential problems, developing hazards, maintenance needs, and other vital areas, when operating in a comfortable and seemingly safe and unchanging working environment.

Through our plant risk training opportunities, participants can develop the necessary skills by both situation assessment and involvement, and the use of practical and proven tools. Such training, created and delivered by hugely experienced industry professionals, can be brought to your location, making it immediately relevant compared to an open course often conducted in a location that’s remote to your operations.
