  • 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.
