Now that we have a 2nd training room available on our premises, we hope that Byron will enable us to reach many more companies requiring high quality safety training delivered in a friendly and knowledgeable nature.

CIEH Accredited Training Centre Status

March 19th, 2014

We are very happy to announce that we are entering into an agreement with another training provider - Acumen Training & Development Ltd - to become their Humber South Bank accredited CIEH training centre.

Our training arm - BLACK & WHITE (UK) LTD will be the deliverers of these training programmes, so look out in local press for course dates and price schedules.

This now means that we will be able to deliver a range of different level nationally accredited Health & Safety courses from our training premises in central Grimsby, or travel to client sites to deliver closed client courses if required.

We will, in due course, add another training section to this website with courses information and potential open course dates, but to whet the appetite for now, we are currently offering hugely discounted Level 1 H&S introduction courses at the bargain price of £65 + VAT per person.

We have a strictly limited number of 16 places at this special price !

Our 2nd offer is limited to 4 places on a Level 2 risk assessment course, vital for anyone writing or working to risk assessments already written from outside the company.

£40 off per person on this course - so it’s a one time only price of £95 + VAT per person.

Lastly, we have (7 only) places for a course delivering the principles of Manual Handling at the special price of £75 + VAT per person.

For further details on these opening offers and other courses to run in the future, please contact Glyn or Byron on 01472 470614, or mail to book places on any of these courses.

10% discount on safety courses agreed in advance for 2014

September 5th, 2013

We are currently trying to help companies avoid the costs that could come from intervention by HSE inspectors who find that your staff have not been trained in safety related subjects or have not received timely refresher training.

Training costs to comply with legislation guidelines can be far less costly than fines and still having to provide the training sessions anyway.

If you have purchase order proof of a forthcoming training course, then you have shown commitment even if the date has not been reached.

So, book your employees in advance for any 2014 training, and earn yourselves a 10% savings on 2013 current price lists !
