Kind regards.

‘Obtaining value from training days is a difficult subject to quantify in real terms’

To keep it simple and sum value up as getting across a clear message to all levels of staff, whether the topic is first aid, confined spaces or any other related subjects speaking from past experience of several course attended Elaine delivers.

You feel the training and knowledge will make a true difference to behaviours on sites the day after, and often ‘canteen talk’ on the training experience last long after the event has taken place That’s what I have experienced so trust this assist’s

Kind Regards

Andrew Gaunt Sales and Marketing Manager

'Elaine has consistently over many years run our courses engaging a wide range of learners who always say they've enjoyed it and it wasn't the grim dull First Aid course they had expected'

Effective Safety Training has been delivering a range of health and safety training at Leeds College of Art for the last 14 years.

Elaine always communicates effectively with both the Human Resources and Health and Safety contacts to ensure that any training delivered is both fit for purpose and complies with the College’s policies and procedures.

We have found that Elaine is reliable, professional and builds a good rapport with staff across the organisation and our staff have favourably commented on Elaine’s relaxed style of delivery.
In particular it has been noted that she delivers often heavily legislative related topic areas in a way which makes the subject interesting and the courses interactive.

The courses are always well structured, informative, professional, and accurate and delivered with enthusiasm and are engaging for all participants.

I fully recommend Effectively Safety Training as a training provider health and safety training.

Amanda Noble
Training and Development Officer

I would highly recommend Effective Safety Training to any other companies wanting to run fire, ICO, H&S or related training courses within their business.

Elaine Rushworth is a competent trainer providing courses that are thorough, practical and very interesting, on a personal level I find Elaine to be an engaging individual delivering a service that is efficient and reliable.

Within the business I have often received very positive feedback for Elaine from individuals who enjoyed her training courses, mainly because she made what could be a rather dry subject interesting.

Npower uses Elaine’s expertise for fire warden and ICO training for the whole of the Northern portfolio from Durham through to Stoke, has been for the last 10 years and intend to so in future.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Elaine to anyone, a real great character to learn with.”

‘Effective Safety Training have provided our safety training for over 6 years.

Elaine’s style of training is a welcome breath of fresh air on topics that can be quite dry and hard to take in for staff members.

The system for ensuring people meet refresher courses without lapsing is also a great help in a small management team which could easily miss key dates, so it’s reassuring to have EST’s help.’
