Health and Safety Training

Health & Safety Certification and Awareness Training Courses

Apart from the effective presentation of most typical 'certified' health and safety training courses, our professional trainers are capable of developing programs to overcome a series of in-house, company-specific hazards related to an engineered mechanical or assembly process, then training into bottom-up compliance.

Inspections, Health & Safety Supervision, Core Staffing

We are often employed by clients who rely on us to provide a fresh set of eyes at the workplace. Our job, simply put, is to ensure compliance with regulations governing a given industry. A typical example would be the inspection services we provide to construction companies with crews deployed far from their home base. In all cases, inspections are thorough and the reports produced are supported through appropriate references to legislation, visual documentation where required, and finally, suggested solutions to any perceived shortcomings at the request of our employer.
