HSE Training and Events

HSE Training and Conferences is unlike any other training provider as their courses are delivered by scientists and health and safety experts who work in research and investigations every day, for the benefit of industry and government. Their training is built around current real-world expertise and is fully aligned with the requirements of the regulator.

They run courses running across the UK, including London and at HSE's purpose-built laboratory in Buxton, Derbyshire. The 129th meeting of the Port Skills and Safety Group will be held at the laboratory and this is an opportunity for PSS members to familiarize themselves with the scientists and experts of the Health and Safety Laboratory as well as the courses that can help in improving the working environment of the ports.

Below is a selection of upcoming courses that will be of particular interest for our members. Click on the links for more in-depth information or conversely you contact them on 01298 218806 or email training@hsl.gsi.gov.uk to discuss bespoke solutions for your organisations, arranged either in-house or at the laboratory facilities.
