Dedicated training facilities, or we can come to you

Our office in Market Harborough has dedicated training facilities complete with the latest technology and equipment, thus assuring you of the best possible standard of teaching. Alternatively, as all of our equipment is portable, we can bring the training session to you.

First Aid Courses

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulation 3(2) states “An employer shall provide …such numbers of suitable persons as is adequate and appropriate in the circumstances for rendering first aid to employees if they become injured or ill at work.”

LSM’s First Aid Industry Body (FAIB) approved, first aid training courses are monitored to meet these requirements and approved code of practice. These run on a regular basis and include a full three day First Aid at Work course; a two day re-qualification course; a shorter, one day Emergency First Aid at Work course for lower risk workplaces or small work groups that do not need a fully qualified first aider and a half day refresher course for intermediate, existing first aiders.

LSM also delivers specialist courses for the care industries, schools and nurseries.

Fire Training

Fire is one of the major threats to any organisation, not just in terms of potential loss of life and damage to property, but also to the continued prosperity of a business. Prompt action upon discovery of a fire could make all the difference.

Our basic fire training is a ‘hands on’ course, giving a core knowledge of fire awareness to ensure staff are able to understand the basic principles of fire prevention and emergency procedures, and can identify, correctly apply and operate the various fire extinguishers and other associated equipment commonly found in the workplace.

We can also offer extended courses to include the principles of fire safety management and fire risk assessment.

Manual Handling

Under the Manual Handling Operations Regulations (MHOR), manual handling is interpreted as the transporting or supporting of any load, which also includes a person or animal.

All aspects of safe manual handling are covered within this essential training, with the emphasis on practical techniques i.e. methods of lifting and carrying, for those employees who undertake manual handling activities.

Where we deliver the course for a single employer or industry sector, we are able to directly relate to the known handling problems encountered within that workplace, thereby helping to reduce the risk of injury and costly absenteeism.

One of our specialities is providing lifting and patient handling training for the care industry

Risk & COSHH Assessment

LSM’s Risk and COSHH Assessment courses provide both practical exercises and step-by-step application techniques to enable candidates to complete the process of Risk or COSHH assessments. Designed to equip candidates with the understanding and confidence to undertake their own assessments, these courses also cover how and where to source information that will help identify suitable control measures.
