We have developed a programme of fully integrated training courses which will assist organisations to achieve continual improvement in safety performance. We offer 'Joined-up Safety Training' - an integrated approach which minimises unnecessary duplication and maximises reinforcement of core issues, values and practise. All our training courses can be customised to integrate with clients' existing company safety systems. Also, each element will stand on its own as an individual training workshop.

Listed below is a selection of our training courses we deliver; simply click on them to view more details.

Our core training courses cover:


Our behaviour (or "the human factor") plays an important role in the workplace. Safe behaviour ensures safe working in potentially dangerous situations or environments. Conversely, things can go badly wrong when unsafe behaviour is applied to procedures at work. Courses include:

  • PEP TALK - Motivating Safe Behaviours, has been developed to promote personal responsibility for safety throughout the organisation. Pep Talk: (traditional definition: A short talk designed to enthuse a targeted audience to increase confidence, productivity and team working ), is much more than just a health & safety conversation. It helps supervisors and line-managers to understand what drives or triggers a particular behaviour, thereby promoting a conversation that genuinely promotes desired behaviours in an organisation. Additionally, the process allows line management to find out what is actually happening in the workplace, and why it might be different to that planned and expected

Using the core Problem - Effect - Prevent process, the conversation is driven to a deeper level; i.e.:

  • Problem
  • Effect
  • Prevent
  • True underlying causes of a behaviour, act or condition
  • Actions require_onced
  • Lessons learnt
  • Knowledge transfer to other appropriate elements within the organisation
  • FIRST DEFENCE - Personal Responsibility for Safety, integrates safety observation and hazard identification to generate a workplace-wide personal responsibility.

First Defence uses a simple Problem - Effect - Prevent approach which not only applies to self behaviour but also to activities which people may see others undertaking.


Everybody within an organisation has a safety leadership role to one extent or another. Line managers, however, have specific roles and responsibilities as safety leaders, and the more senior the position, the more impact that position has on the organisation's collective beliefs, standards and practises - the safety culture. Furthermore, in the increasingly competitive business world, organisations need to promote the highest possible levels of commitment from its people. Leadership and motivational skills enable organisations to further develop performance levels by encouraging employees to make that extra one percent effort for the company. Leadership is all about establishing, communicating and demonstrating a shared set of core values and principles. Courses include:

  • SAFETY AND THE LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE - introduces new perspectives with an analysis of the current leadership agenda, underpinned by behavioural psychology

Incident Investigation

During investigations it is easy to focus on the individual(s) whose actions 'caused' the incident. However, it is more important to understand the reasons which contributed to those actions if similar incidents are to be avoided in future. Courses include:

  • HELIX INVESTIGATOR - a set of workshops to provide investigators with essential knowledge and skills to determine root causes of incidents and recommend actions to prevent recurrence.
  • bp INCIDENT INVESTIGATION - Helix Safety is an approved provider of bp Federal incident investigation training, with courses designed from Standard to Senior Investigator level which are ideally suited for companies subcontracted to bp.

Risk Assessment

Assessing risk is a core activity for all organisations and tasks. This recommended course follows the core PEP Problem-Effect-Prevent process, tailored to risk assessment require_oncements. Other specific assessment needs are separately catered for (for example manual handling and COSHH/CARA); these also follow the core PEP - Problem-Effect-Prevent process, providing commonality through out all levels. Courses include:

  • Task Based Risk Assessment - legal require_oncement for risk assessment, recognising hazards, and identification of protective and preventative controls.

They can cover intentional and unintentional behaviours, human error and ergonomics. Human factor workshops can also be customised to mixed-responsibility groups or specific responsibility levels / roles.
