This internationally-recognised training course is also ideal for companies that need to meet the ever increasing demand for evidence of health and safety compliance. Companies have been known to develop a competitive edge as a result of what they have learnt during the course and subsequently put into practice.

It would be my personal preference to do a mock at the end of day one just to be aware of the form and requirements.

The course was simple with clear explanations all modules, really useful learning.

Feedback: R Jones

Well run course, tutor was very interactive. I liked that the slides were used more of  an aid rather than relied on which is a great presentation style.

There was a good engagement with the group with good discussions. A good range of resources and info used

I have spent the last three days at your establishment on the IOSH managing safely course with Gemma Talbot as the tutor.
More often then not in the environments that we work in people are quite often criticised and never praised for the work that they do.
In this instance Gemma and the team at the lighthouse have absolutely smashed it and I feel the recognition is needed as the course ran smoothly with no hiccups and all staff that were at the front line of the days were polite and really made me feel welcome for the duration of the day.
The course was delivered very well and in the right manner for ease of learning for all people in the room.
All staff were very polite, courteous and always very happy to go that extra mile.
Once again thank you to your team and especially Gemma.
Myself and my team will be using Lighthouse again very soon and you will come highly recommended from me.
IOSH Managing Safely, March 2020
