The UK Department for Education has approved a new safety, health and environment (SHE) apprenticeship as part of the government’s “Trailblazer” initiative.
A new qualification is being piloted for managers, supervisors and safety professionals working in potentially hazardous process industries, such as oil and gas, chemicals, plastics and pharmaceuticals.
The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) has invalidated 4,615 Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) labourer cards after five test centres were found to be fraudulently awarding the Health, Safety and Environment (HS&E) qualification to workers in exchange for cash bribes.
Representatives from leading UK consultancies discuss trends in OSH training, and how clients can make training more effective and avoid common mistakes choosing packages.
