A variety of health and safety training delivered online and face to face

Our relationship with International Workplace started around ten years ago with some director-level training, and in recent years has focused on training including:

Kate is an exceptional trainer, one of the best we’ve ever had.

We undergo a safety audit every year so the majority of our training is in response to that. The pandemic stalled some of the training we had planned, but it wasn’t long before we were able to get it up and running again.

Kate has done both online and onsite training and online and in-person courses. We prefer the in-person courses, you can’t really beat that, but the virtual classroom has worked as well.

“Kate is an exceptional trainer, one of the best we’ve ever had.”

Tailored asbestos training courses

International Workplace is able to create bespoke training for us. The latest asbestos training that we did, which was for our maintenance team, was more tailored to us. Kate had an online meeting with Alan, our Maintenance Manager, to see what our needs were, and then she went around the factory and had a look before undertaking the training so she knew what the issues were.
