Why is staff training necessary?

It’s important to have the skills and knowledge to protect the people in your business. In the UK each year there are still around 200 work-related deaths, over a million workplace injuries and a further 1.8 million cases of ill health caused or exacerbated by work.

These numbers reflect a great deal of pain, suffering, lost productivity and financial costs. Accidents will always happen - but it’s your job as an employer to limit the risk.

Staff training is all about education. It ensures:

  • Staff know about their legal responsibilities
  • There are people in the business who know how to react in emergencies
  • All risks are made aware of
  • Staff are protected as well as they can be

How does our training work?

Our trainers come to a location of your choice (usually your offices), at a date of your choice to carry out whatever training is needed. This means all your staff get the undivided attention of our trainers, plus we can personalise the course to make it relevant to your particular industry and policy.

Why choose our training?


For DSE training we can either come to you at a date and time that suits you, or you can come to one of our drop-in days where we provide the date, time, venue and refreshments. The latter option is a more cost-effective option for smaller groups as they’ll be joining people from other companies.


Our expert trainers come to your office (or a location of your choice) and train staff specifically according to the business’s policies and procedures. In other words, each course is tailored for your unique needs.


We believe the best way to learn is to do. We bring along specialist equipment relevant to the training so all delegates can have a go and get the best possible simulation of a real-life situation.


So much of our communication is achieved digitally in the modern office - it can be a real breath of fresh air to have a day of face-to-face training where staff can interact, get involved, and really engage with their learning.


Our training is designed to fully immerse people in reconstructed situations. This immersion helps to create memorable experiences that means their new knowledge is not only stored but seen and felt too, making it easier to recall if needed.


Our training courses are competitively priced and a drop in the ocean compared to the long-term benefits. With staff trained to a high standard in health and safety, first aid and DSE, you reduce the huge costs associated with illnesses and injuries in the workplace. The cost of not sufficiently training staff could include:

  • Paying sick leave
  • Paying overtime for staff covering absent colleagues
  • Reduced output from absent employees
  • Time and money spent finding replacement staff
  • Diminished standard of service
  • Loss of business reputation
