UK HSE a Great British export
In the last few months RRC and our partners have run UK accredited health and safety courses in Albania, China, Bangladesh, Belgium, Canada, Dubai, Ghana, Ecuador, Georgia, Mali, Mauritania, New Zealand, Nigeria, Spain, Sweden, Suriname, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Tanzania, and Tunisia. Languages involved in the teaching include Arabic, Georgian, French, Russian, Spanish, and English.
Over the next few months Denmark, Germany, Indonesia, Vietnam and possibly Afghanistan are on the schedule. I also see on various social media platforms some of our more adventurous fellow training providers are travelling the world to meet the growing demand for UK HSE training.
It’s not without its problems; a keen eye has to be kept on the news and the FCO website as clients are not always in the nicer parts of the world.
E-learning covers a lot more of the globe and RRC currently has students studying in nearly 100 countries, slightly down from our record 108 but still an impressive number.
NEBOSH courses lead the demand but there is also interest in IOSH and IEMA courses.
With all the talk of Brexit and trade deals it is nice to see that a profession often so misunderstood by the press and the public at large has such a great exporting record.
RRC will continue to rack up the air miles in 2019 and beyond in our modest attempt to help make the world a safer place to work.
