The course itself and how it is delivered ensures a fun interactive way of learning about health and safety. The examples and discussion points are tailored to each business and we ensure that a meeting/zoom call is conducted prior to delivery to ensure company-relevant documents and examples are utilised throughout. There are set learning outcomes and objectives however it has always been imperative that each course tackles company objectives - the course has always been about each business and those attending. A lot of effort is put into the course to ensure that everyone participates throughout. Group sessions are an important part of this and everyone learns an enormous amount from each other. The course starts with a gentle introduction to health and safety and builds up the foundation of hazards and risks. As we have delivered this course over the years it's clear that although many candidates have a basic understanding of hazards/risks and the risk assessment process they lack a clear understanding of its foundations. As soon as they appreciate the background everything else falls into place and makes sense. 
This course provides time for discussion and the unpicking of health and safety law and terminology utilising well-known case study examples as well as tackling and demystifying CDM (Construction Design Management Regulations). The benefits of the course have been clear to see over the years. Not only does it bring the candidates together in a room for three days and gives them time to reflect on their work processes, but it also brings sensible health and safety to the forefront of discussions. It provides a friendly and relaxed delivery to consider new ways of working that save time but manage health and safety that benefits everyone in the business. 
Feedback from the course has always been extremely positive. We all leave the course having had a few laughs along the way but learned so much to take back to the workplace (our trainers included). All of which will improve safety in the workplace as well as providing an efficient process that doesn't rely on reams and reams of paperwork but manages safety in a proportionate way.
