Challenging the costs of Workplace training

Basic Workplace Training costs are a burden for many companies…

An interesting 2 days spent researching the costs of; online, in-house and training centre Health & Safety courses, provided us with some astonishing results:

We found basic courses ranging from £25 for a 2-hour online session to £895 for a 2-day training centre course.

We also investigated the average number of training courses advised for a small business not using heavy machinery, was 18, yes 18 individual basic training courses, here’s just a few of them:

  • Slips and TripsPrevent back injury image
  • Manual handling
  • Correct PPE
  • Risk Assessments
  • Managing Safety
  • Use of Pallet Trucks
