Health and Safety training specialist Astutis is celebrating after achieving Gold Learning Partner Status from one of the world’s leading organisations for providing health, safety and environmental qualifications.
Astutis has received the highly sought-after recognition from NEBOSH for excelling in the provision of course tuition and support in health and safety training. The learning partner programme is a quality assurance scheme that recognises those providers who can prove that they meet the principles of best practice in the provision of NEBOSH course tuition and support
Following accreditation, the Cardiff-based firm also launched two new NEBOSH courses for Occupational Health and Safety, which have a new structure, enabling learners to navigate easily with bite-sized micro learning plus offline study.
The Online NEBOSH General Certificate Courses are the most popular and recognised qualifications of their kind. Holders of this accreditation are able to identify, evaluate and control a wide range of workplace hazards. The qualification encourages a pragmatic approach to managing risk and covers the main legal requirements for health and safety in the UK.
Getting facilities up to scratch and having a workforce that is safety savvy is vital for businesses to minimise the risk of accidents and fatalities that could lead to stiff penalties. Astutis delivers NEBOSH, IOSH and IEMA approved courses enabling companies to assess and manage risks, protect employees and preserve the environment.
