Online health and safety training - two people talking

Online health and safety training

Get the essential skills and knowledge to manage and minimise risks within your environment.

Following health and safety best practice is not only vital for managing and minimising risks to ensure a safe environment, but it’s also essential for adhering to government regulations.

In addition to the danger to public health, there are large fines in place for non-compliance, alongside risks to the success and reputation of an organisations’ business. It is therefore essential that you, and the people you work with, are equipped with the right skills and knowledge, and to the standards we set as the UK's only chartered body for environmental health.

From first aid, fire safety and working at heights to asbestos awareness, legionella awareness and more, we provide a range of courses at different levels all designed by subject-matter experts to suit your skills and experience.
