Become a Health and Safety Trainer

Along with our specific courses in health and safety topics like sharps training, and accredited qualifications like the NEBOSH Diploma, we also provide a number of courses for those wishing to become a health and safety trainer, or have been made responsible by their particular organisation for the training of others in health and safety matters.

For those who want to become a health and safety trainer but don't really know where to begin, it is best to talk to one of our health and safety advisors, as trainers should be trained to a higher level than that which they are teaching. Please call us on 0844 800 3295 or send us an online contact form.

Our courses for aspiring health and safety trainers are listed below. These courses not only teach the subject matter (e.g. manual handling, risk assessment etc.), but also contain a large element on trainer training techniques such as planning and preparing trainers plans, delivery and dealing with difficult delegates.
