IOSH Managing Safely and Working Safely

bal speakerI am an IOSH approved trainer, and have delivered both courses for students in facilities, maintenance, office work, construction, education and grounds maintenance.  I have worked under the license of other clients, but if you need these courses and don’t have a license I work with Stepping Stones for Business to provide the training.

I supplement the IOSH training material with my own exercises and case studies, making use of training methods that have been proven to work, and using examples relevant to the audience to drive the messages home.


mh 1Manual handling training

I have a BTEC Level 3 award in Manual Handling Training, and have provided manual handling training to IT staff, facilities staff, maintenance technicians and office workers.  I am also a “resting” yoga teacher, having taught from 1998 until The Safer Choice became too busy in 2013.  This gives my manual handling training an extra depth, as I’ve worked with lots of students over that time to understand their aches and pains.

mh 2I can produce an off-the-shelf basic manual handling course, but I prefer to tailor something around what you do in your work place, and include the delivery of some manual handling risk assessments as an output of the training.  The aim of my training would be that your staff can not only lift, carry, push or pull more safely, but that they know how to risk assess and modify new handling tasks to make them safe2.


Train the trainer

I love training (yes, literally) but for routine training, I’d rather train your staff to deliver it than keep coming into your workplace to remind people to apply the hand brake, wash their hands or wear a seat belt.  See how I threw away PowerPoint and taught supervisors to do their own training for more information.

Customised training support

Do your risk assessments rely on training to keep people safe?  How do know whether people have the right training?  I can help you to assess your training needs and put together a programme of training specific to your training needs.  This might include tailored courses delivered by me or delivered by your staff, recommendations of e-learning courses, or where I think someone else can do it better, recommendations of specialist trainers to use.
