Hawksafe are a professionally qualified training organisation that regularly delivers approved classroom-based Health and Safety compliance courses from the likes of NEBOSH, CITB and IOSH, as well as first aid courses and our own bespoke courses to meet your organisations requirements.

From Asbestos Awareness and Management courses to Work at Height Awareness, Hawksafe has its own list of 12 courses designed to ensure your business is on the right track. In businesses of all sizes, it pays to have the training in place in order to be in a position to conduct drug and alcohol workplace testing, or to advise when it comes to manual handling. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Our courses also include important subjects aimed at minimising the risk of exposure to harmful infections such as Legionnaires, which can often arise from particular working environments your staff might find themselves in. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown all too clearly how businesses must be responsive and have the right knowledge and policies in place to protect employees from the risk of exposure to illnesses. The last thing you would want is the health and safety of your own employees to be put at risk and the work they do to be impacted, all because you didn’t have the necessary training to mitigate risk in this regard.
Accidents can happen, but with courses in subjects such as Work at Height and Ladder and Stepladder Awareness, the risk of such accidents in your working environment could be mitigated. In addition, many working environments require the usage of respiratory protective equipment, to prevent workers inhaling toxic or harmful substances or particles on a daily basis.
For those operating in the construction sector, having qualifications from the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) is considered a gold standard for ensuring your business can be trusted to have the right training required to ensure maintenance of adequate health and safety. We can help you sign up to no fewer than seven courses on offer through the CITB, with courses followed by assessments and certification based on the following topics:
- Health & Safety Awareness (HSA)
- Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS)
- Site Management Safety Training Scheme Refresher (SMSTS-R)
- Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS)
- Site Supervision Safety Training Scheme Refresher (SSSTS-R)
- Health and Safety Awareness Level 1 (CSCS)
- Site Environmental Safety Training Scheme (SEATS)
The Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH) is another organisation providing certification which we can offer access to at Hawksafe. For those in management and supervisory roles, the IOSH Leading Safely, Managing Safely and Working Safely courses give them the tools to understand why accidents happen in the workplace and how to prevent them and put control measures in place to protect the health and safety of their staff.
The aim of the courses is to give them a clear idea of Health & Safety law, responsibilities in this regard, as well as the means to identify hazards, conduct risk assessments and method statements. Not only that, but your staff will have a thorough understanding of accident and incident prevention and how to investigate any accidents and incidents that do occur.
