We realise that all businesses are looking to make cost-saving measures at the moment; however the training market has unfortunately become saturated with providers who, although cheap, are not always properly qualified or insured!
Yorkshire (PRWEB UK) 22 October 2012
Currently, customers seeking corporate safety training generally need to visit various different providers’ websites to locate the kind of training they require, fill in a lengthy contact form requesting information and possibly wait for days before receiving a quote for the work. However, First Rescue Training and Supplies, based in Tadcaster (nr Leeds), has now launched a new website that allows customers to search for the exact type of course they require, receive an immediate quote, then book and pay for the course online in one seamless process – saving hours of staff time.
Craig Ward, (Director) at First Rescue, says “Our new resource will be an absolute boon for cash-strapped, time-pressed managers at a time when corporate budgets are tighter than ever. Health and safety training is obviously an essential requirement for all businesses whatever the economic climate, so I’m delighted that we can help them to reduce their costs without compromising on the quality of the training they receive
Craig warns against the false economy of choosing a training company based on price alone, tempting as that may be when budgets are squeezed to the max. “We realise that all businesses are looking to make cost-saving measures at the moment; however the training market has unfortunately become saturated with providers who, although cheap, are not always properly qualified or insured!” Craig advises managers that a reputable training provider should always be able to provide evidence of the following:
- HSE Approval Certificate
- Public & Employer’s Liability Insurance Certificate
- Professional Indemnity Insurance Certificate
- Risk assessments
- Instructor qualifications
- A professional-looking website
- A published address and landline telephone number
- Samples of training materials used
- Samples of certificates that will be issued
At First Rescue the focus is very much on friendliness, interaction and having fun, whilst still retaining high professional standards; this has proved to be the best way to engage staff and make training memorable. The company Established in 2003 holds open-access training sessions throughout the north of England, as well as running in-house courses for business of all sizes all over the UK.
Having built up an excellent reputation over the last nine years for delivering high-quality First Aid, Automated External Defibrillation (AED) and Lifeguard Training courses, First Rescue has also now branched out into other areas of health and safety in the workplace, offering courses and e-learning in areas such as food safety, manual handling, health/social care and fire awareness. The company is independently approved by the Health and Safety Executive and the Royal Lifesaving Society.
Courses running in York, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield and Hull available to book now for 2013.
