The annual USHA conference is a good opportunity to network, brush up on some skills and get to see another City! As an Affiliate member as well as an exhibitor it is invaluable.
Safety 4 HEd’s Vincent Theobald-Vega attended again this year, our second year of trading.
During this period we provided dedicated health and safety support services for the University sector; training, investigation and advisory services have been used in the North of England, the Midlands and Wales.
The feedback has been excellent, and you don’t need to take my word for it; the quotes are available on the Safety 4 HEd website at www.safety4hed.co.uk
This year we were promoting the idea of having a Grab Bag to hand in preparation to investigate incidents. This common tool is used in many workplaces and one that I have used for many years. Indeed three of the Universities at the conference already use these type of incident response bags.
Investigation skills are often overlooked when planning the training of School / Department Safety Officers. If you require your departmental staff to undertake investigations, do you train them to do so? If you would like an experienced HSE investigator to train your staff in basic investigation methods, look at what we can deliver for you.
Our Basic course (2 hours) is described at www.safety4hed.co.uk/t-inv.shtml and our one day version (including practical elements) is described at www.safety4hed.co.uk/t-inv.shtml
We can also provide training on a wide variety of other topics, including the full IOSH range of courses so do get in touch.
