New online shop for your training and PPE needs
12 February 2020
SOCOTEC, the UK’s leading partner in technical expertise and service, has officially launched its new online shop, where users can purchase a wide range of professional health and safety training courses and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
With over 70 training courses to choose from – including Asbestos Awareness online training, Mental Health First Aid and Construction Site Safety – the new shop will equip users with the skills and competencies required to remain fully compliant with health and safety/environmental legislation and guidelines in the workplace.
Both classroom-based and e-learning courses are available, all of which can be delivered privately in-house or at the organisation’s dedicated training facility in Towcester, Northamptonshire. Each course will be delivered by SOCOTEC’s team of professional consultants, who have a wealth of experience in health and safety management and environmental risk. There is also the option of attending an open course, which are offered across SOCOTEC’s additional training facilities in London, Cardiff and the Midlands.
In addition, the shop offers delegates the opportunity to participate in accredited professional training from nationally recognised bodies such as UKATA, IOSH, NEBOSH, City & Guilds, CITB and Qualsafe, as well as to purchase refresher training to keep up-to-date with health and safety legislation and any industry changes.
To further ensure that users are equipped with the tools to remain compliant with workplace health and safety legislation, SOCOTEC’s new shop also allows users to purchase a selection of PPE, including harnesses, lanyards and the MSA Latchways Personal Rescue Device and Removable Transfastener.
If users discover a course on the shop that they would like to personalise to meet the individual requirements of their organisation, they can liaise with SOCOTEC’s team of developers, who are equipped to offer a range of tailored training solutions at an extra cost. By incorporating company logos, policies, procedures, case studies and real life examples into their training, delegates will receive a more personal, engaging learning experience, all while greatly increasing the learning outcomes of their chosen course. The new site has also been designed to provide customers with a user-friendly shopping experience, as it can be accessed anywhere, any time and on any device.
Gavin Clarke, operations director for health & safety, SOCOTEC UK, said, “The launch of SOCOTEC’s new online shop enables us to continue to build on our ongoing commitment to providing a more flexible, cost-effective and total service solution for our clients. By offering a broad range of bespoke health and safety training courses and PPE, SOCOTEC can continue to support its clients throughout the whole asset life cycle, providing them with the knowledge and tools to remain fully compliant and guarantee the safety of their staff.”
