The HSE provides a wealth of information for employers and employees alike, highlighting the requirements for the provisions that need to be implemented within the work place.
Our assessors are formerly qualified with a wealth of experience in their chosen fields. With their knowledge and clear delivery methods including training materials, candidates can be assured to achieve the required standard that has been set by both Pearson and HSE alike.
