Cannock, United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 28, 2009 -- All employers in the UK have obligations under Health and Safety legislation to protect their employees from accidents and ill health caused by working conditions. However, the legislation changes frequently and it is hard to keep abreast of the current requirements. Many employers in SME companies are not even aware that they have to have access to âcompetentâ health and safety advice let alone where to find it.
There are also obligations to make sure that your managers are qualified to certain levels, often IOSH or NEBOSH qualifications are needed. So you need to know where to get your staff trained and be sure that they will come back from the training in which you have invested with the right qualification.
We have found a company that can help you with all of these requirements. Phoenix Training is a firm of IOSH Chartered Health and Safety Practioners and can provide anything from âcompetentâ advice through to staff training courses. They offer training facilities throughout the UK in London, Birmingham, Leeds, Bristol and Manchester where their highly qualified trainers run both IOSH and NEBOSH courses.
In fact Phoenix Training is so confident in the abilities of their trainers that they guarantee that your staff will pass any of the courses that are on offer. From an employerâs point of view this means that the money you spend on getting your staff appropriately qualified is well spent as each of them will achieve the level necessary to obtain the qualifications that you need them to have. You can see more about the courses they offer on their website at www.phoenixtraining.co.uk
The company also offers businesses their consultancy services to keep you up to date with all the new legislation that affects you and your employees. This means that you do not have to waste hours trawling through every piece of Health and Safety legislation only to find that it does not apply to your company. Having them as your consultants automatically means that you fulfill the law regarding access to âcompetentâ advice which we mentioned earlier, without it costing you a fortune because as all good business managers know, whilst all of this is tax deductable you still need to be making as much profit as possible without running the risk of falling foul of the law or being sued by an employee that is injured at work.
If you need advice on Health and Safety or need to get your staff qualified Phoenix Training is the right place to start.
