Health and safety training courses need to be accessible, understandable, and relevant for everyone throughout your business, delivering what you need at an affordable price. So, what happens if your business has unique needs and doesn't fit the mould of existing courses out there? Building and developing training courses is a specialist field in itself, add on then the additional specialist field of health and safety, and costs and time start to add up.
First4Safety have been making workplaces safer since 1999. It has developed and built its IOSH Online Course offering to now offer the widest range of core IOSH courses across management, executive and core skills training.
Whilst it offers the widest range of core IOSH-approved courses, they also develop courses that can match specific customer requirements. It might be a brand new title like IOSH Manual Handling or it could be an existing title that requires some fine-tuning to meet the specifics of your teams or business - like translating Managing Safely Refresher into Welsh.
John from First4Safety says: 'When we were recently approached by a government organisation who wanted to understand the prospect of translating one of the core IOSH titles into Welsh – we thought it was really exciting. There’s a commercial element to any course build, as we take on all the development costs, so it needs to have a reasonable cohort in need of the training to make sense, but we’re happy to do it if it means more people benefit. We love developing, it’s part of what we do. This project was a lot of fun, but more than that, we’re really proud to have been able to help.'
