Apart from providing an extensive range of health and safety training publications, Workplace Press has a training arm, Uni-OSH Consultants, which has been established to provide health and safety practitioners with specialist training courses.
These courses are centred on the Workplace Press health and safety publications. Information on these courses can be obtained from our Training Programmes page. Some of these courses are linked to the unit standards framework whilst others are stand-alone, with participants gaining a 'Certificate of Attainment' on successful completion of a course.
