Health & Safety Training Courses ~ FAQ's

What Courses do you offer?

We offer a full range of health and safety training courses, providing both bespoke training and nationally recognised qualifications in health and safety. Our experienced training specialists can design and deliver the perfect programme to meet your needs, for the boardroom or the shop floor in any type of organisation.

If you can't see the safety training course that you need on our website, just contact us and we will be more than happy to help you.

What training methods do you use?

We use a variety of methods during a course, depending on the subject and the course objectives.

Our philosophy is to "train by doing" which means that, wherever possible, we include practical exercises. This enables delegates to put the theory into practice, and see at the same time how it relates to their own workplace. This makes them feel more able and confident to use their newly-learnt skills when back at the workplace.

Where are the courses held?

At a location to suit you covering all the UK. Most clients prefer to hold the training in-house on their own premises but we are happy to run courses for you off-site, perhaps in a local hotel or training facility.

Why should I choose TMS International?

We aim to encourage rather than present to delegates which results in the training delivered being a far more enjoyable experience. This usually means that the training is therefore more effective than more traditional styles of training. Our training methods have been developed and evolved over a number of years, by our trainers, instructors and tutors. TMS Health and Safety Training takes pride in not just delivering cost effective training but continuously developing our training programs and methods.

TMS training instructors are experienced, knowledgable, professional and provide cost effective training delivered in a relaxed manner. Over the years this has helped the TMS create a proven track record of success and many succesful business relationships with other companies.

Who Should be trained?

Everyone in the workplace has a part to play in Health and Safety, and therefore requires training. Training should be compulsory for all levels of staff to ensure a thorough level of understanding throughout the organisation. Staff training must be presented as an essential part of working procedures and not merely because it is required by law.

What do managers and supervisors need to know?

Managers and supervisors need to understand the framework of the law, and the detailed specific requirements that relate to their own work area. They need to be able to undertake or revise risk assessments as necessary, and devise and implement systems which will ensure that control measures are maintained in efficient order. They also need to identify situations in which they need to instigate special training and procedures - such as for entry into confined spaces, work at height, work with ionising radiation.

Are there specialised areas of training?

There are several specialised training needs, which are common to most work places, there are many more that are not common, please call or advice for more information

Driver/operator training for which certification may be required, e.g. fork-lift truck operation.

Manual handling.

Display screen equipment (DSE) user.

Abrasive wheel changing.

Press and guillotine operators.

Safety representatives.

What is management and employee involvement?

It should be emphasised that training is a two-way process, involving employee responsibility to the employer as well as vice versa. Training for health and safety should foster and encourage safety considerations for oneself and others. Training also provides an opportunity for discussion and review of the company safety arrangements.

As well as instruction in national, local and organisational regulations, it should make employees more aware of their organisational role and feel free to discuss the training they have been given and their individual needs.

Is there a requirement to keep training records?

In the unfortunate event of an accident or dangerous occurence, an employer will need to be able to provide credible evidence that the training responsibilities have been discharged. This can be done easily where training has been carried out by accredited instructors and an individual certificate has been issued. It is always prudent for the employer to keep a copy of any such certificates, in case the originals are mislaid.

For less formal training, the employer should keep a record of the syllabus used and signatures from everyone trained, to indicate at the very least that the training was given, and the training material was provided.
