Health & Safety Training

The health and safety team run a regular training programme to help ensure you have the key health & safety skills in school. A list of upcoming training opportunities is set out below.

New Training Venue

From the New Year, the EDC is unavailable for training and from January our courses are moving to Walsall Council House.

There is plenty of car parking in Walsall town centre, and council car parks are competitively priced – currently £2.50 per day in our long-stay car parks.

From March onwards we should be in a position to once again provide lunch for all day courses; consequently prices*, which were temporarily reduced, will return to their normal level. Prior to March we will provide drinks, however we ask trainees to bring their own lunches.
