FENLANDER: Health and safety training offer for Fenland businesses

BUY one Level 2 health and safety training course and get another half-price: that’s the bargain on offer to local businesses from Fenland District Council.

Companies are being encouraged to sign employees up in good time for the next available Level 2 course, which is in September. Anyone successfully completing it is awarded a nationally recognised certificate from the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health Officers.

The course is on September 14 (9am-5pm) at Fenland Hall, County Road, March. It costs �64, including lunch.

Other courses are also available, including Effective Risk Assessments, Manual Handling, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH). These also take place at Fenland Hall (9.15am-12.15pm) and cost �36.90.

The next Effective Risk Assessments/Manual Handling/PPE course is scheduled for May 24 and there is one on Effective Risk Assessments/COSHH/PPE on June 8. Each student is given a certificate of attendance.

Employers have a statutory duty to provide their staff with suitable health and safety training and supervision. Dawn Sadler, FDC’s senior environmental health officer, said: “Undertaking this training improves a company’s health and safety performance, reduces lost time from accidents and near misses and is good for business.

“Our courses are run by fully trained environmental health staff and provide a wide range of essential knowledge and understanding.”
