Every year, accidents and injuries in the workplace not only affect the lives of thousands of workers, but cost the economy tens of millions of pounds. Now more than ever, the world as a whole is becoming increasingly health and safety conscious when it comes to both working conditions and the specific role each member of the workforce plays in facilitating and maintaining the safest possible working environment.

To successfully promote and manage safety is to save the business time, money and the threat of both serious reputational damage and downtime.

I enrolled my sales team on the BOLC Safety Course to ensure that everyone was up to speed and trained to the same level. The course was great, the prices were low and the customer support was first-rate.
My decision to study health and safety with BOLC was based on my long-term goal of securing a management promotion. I’ve since been made leader of the team I used to work in, so I’m definitely on the way up!
