HEALTH & SAFETY TRAINING

Meridian has used its vast experience to develop an extensive range of safety training courses and delivery methods. Our courses are ideal for Company Directors and Managers looking to improve their understanding of health and safety management or any member of the workforce seeking to increase their knowledge and skills in a wide variety of safety practices.

 

We specialise in the provision of training in construction based health, safety and professional development solutions. We cover a range of key topics, including  the CITB Construction Skills (Site Safety Plus) suite of courses, and bespoke training. All of which are delivered by industry experienced experts.

 

The Construction Skills suite of courses are designed to provide the construction industry with the skills and knowledge necessary in order to survive and prosper in today's challenging economic environment, resulting in a safe, professional and fully-qualified work force. They are considered to be the minimum standard training requirement and are the construction industries competence indicator.

 

Site Management

 

We provide a number of safety training courses for workplace and construction site managers, such as the CITB Construction-Skills Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS). This course was devised to assist site managers and potential site managers to develop knowledge, awareness and understanding of their legal, moral and social responsibilities in respect of health, safety and welfare on construction sites. It is currently one of the most highly respected qualifications for persons who have the weighty responsibility of managing a construction site. Many employers insist that all their site managers hold the certificate. And it is viewed by the HSE as the minimum standard of training for site managers.

Site Supervision

 

All supervisors, foremen, charge-hands and gangers are required to be competent in their roles in order to maintain a safe working environment.

 

Meridian can provide a number of health and safety training courses suitable for those who carry these responsibilities, such as the CITB Construction-Skills Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS). This two day Course is aimed at first time managers and supervisors who have or are about to acquire supervisory responsibilities.

Site Operatives

 

Having a competent workforce is fundamental to achieving a safe working environment. Therefore safety training for operatives is absolutely necessary for any safety conscious company. We can provide a variety of suitable safety awareness courses for your employees, such as the CITB Construction-Skills Health and Safety Awareness Training Scheme (SATS). This one day Course is aimed at those who are either working in the construction sector of industry or are about to join the industry. This course forms an important part in ensuring that applicants receive adequate safety training as part of their induction training. It is one of the key stages in becoming CSCS accredited, but is suitable for anyone at operative level whatever their previous level of experience.

General Safety

 

At Meridian we believe that everyone should be trained to cope in any life threatening situation, such as a fire or a first aid emergency. Therefore we are able to provide specialist training in First Aid and the Safe Use of Fire Fighting Equipment. For those with Fire Warden responsibilities we can provide an appropriate level of training suitable for their specific working environment. We can also provide safety and practical training courses, such as the Safe Use of Abrasive Wheels, Safe Manual Handling, Safe Work at Height, Scaffolding Awareness and Inspection, Behavioural Safety and many many more.

If the course you require is not noted above please call and ask. Other courses, including bespoke and in-house training, can also be provided. Please call for further information.

 

All of our training courses can be held in the comfort of your company’s own facilities, if suitable, or at other carefully selected, convenient venues. This may result in considerable savings if you have a sufficient number of training delegates. We can also provide bespoke training to suit your company’s particular needs.
