Health and Safety

Health and Safety… I know, I know. But this is different.
Our four modules will help you identify and avoid health and safety incidents, while also providing support when incidents do happen.

The Health and Safety at Work Act puts a lot of onus – and penalties – on employers to manage risks properly.

A good H&S programme is more than just a compliance checklist but a systemic programme of good business that allows your people to get home safely every day.

The Meredith Connell Health & Safety programme uses a unique scenario-based and engaged learning approach to understanding your health and safety risks, and puts best practice plans in place to manage them.

Scenario-based exercises engage your people in highlighting risks, identifying and implementing mitigation plans, and for checking the quality of your systems.
