New Course making an impact!!

Posted by admin on March 7, 2016

With IOSH Leading Safely now having been delivered for a few months we have been able to gauge how our delegates are responding to the course. The course is making an impact both in the office and out in the world of business for our delegates.

Overall delegates have benefited from the interactive nature of the course and the ways in which the course delivery, by our tutors, allows individuals to apply concepts learnt to their own strategic planning and management.

Individuals have stated that they have benefited from;

  • The renewed understanding they have of their legal responsibilities
  • Explanation of management technique theories applied in the Health & Safety arena.
  • The opportunity to discuss and review their current practices at a top management level.

We plan to run open courses at our Martlesham offices every 2 months throughout this year, as well as in house courses for individual clients at their premises. 


Time for Reflection and planning

Posted by admin on December 21, 2015

With Christmas upon us we have been busy reflecting on our past year and the new developments it has bought to the business. We have spent the year developing our management systems as well as those of our clients and have achieved a great deal. We have seen 5 clients spread their wings and start to manage their own health and safety with us taking a step back, and they are all doing really well which is great to see.

Now we have been taking time to plan our busy schedules for the new year and with new work coming in regularly we are looking at opportunities to find new consultants and trainers to work with us.

Working with Acer Safety Services means working with a purpose which is based in our belief that our job is to empower, train and coach our clients, thus enabling them to manage their own safety management systems effectively. 

If you or anyone you know may be interested in working with our team please take a look at our new 'Job Opportunities' page to see our current vacancies.

 


Behavioural Safety Training

Posted by admin on November 18, 2015

Over the past year we have been working with a large client to develop a programme revolving around behavioural safety and effective communication. Following a survey of the culture and attitudes towards safety which currently exist within the organisation, we have been developing some innovative methods of delivery for our training programme. 

Implementing new concepts to stimulate safe behaviours and encourage employees to think through their actions and behaviours, and the related consequences, whilst using examples from both the home and the workplace.

We are very excited looking forward to getting our team on the road delivering the courses in the new year.
