Here at Health & Safety Solutions we’re busy designing our new set of online courses, training you can undertake at your own pace in your own setting – even at home! While there are some of our courses that don’t translate well to an online version (for example, those that have a strong practical or ‘hands-on’ element), we are confident that our courses offer the same in-depth training from experienced and informative trainers as you would get in the training room.

In the following video our trainer Rachel Buckler outlines a little bit more of our plan for offering online courses…
