Why choose Safety Simplified?

The human and financial costs of failing to manage health and safety are immense. Many organisations and individuals can feel daunted by their responsibilities. But that doesn’t have to be the case.

Safety Simplified is a new approach to health and safety training that is relevant to anyone, in any organisation, in any sector.

The three-day practical course aims to demystify the practicalities of risk assessment and control, help organisations reduce accidents and work related ill-health, achieve greater employee engagement and morale, and improve productivity.

Through a robust learning experience, with lots of practical hints and tips, delegates will return to their workplaces with ideas they can put into practice immediately.

The course content is absorbing, and engaging, makes use of the latest technology, such as augmented reality, to provide learning that brings health and safety to life and helps learners make a real difference in the workplace.

The impact of this course

“Safety Simplified gets to the heart of effective health and safety management, reinforcing why it is so central to strong business performance – with no red tape in sight.”

Ian Taylor, CEO, NEBOSH

"Safety Simplified takes advantage of the latest learning techniques, leaving the staid image of death-by-PowerPoint health and safety training long behind it. Learners really benefit from experiential learning delivered via augmented reality."

Dee Arp, Director of Learning and Assessment, NEBOSH

"There's lots of activities and discussions...Together with the augmented reality scenarios it means that three days of safety training is interactive and enjoyable instead of sitting through lots of slides."

Paul Budden, NEBOSH Learning Partner, Wessex Safety Services
