At TSW, we recognise that each organisation has unique needs. Our bespoke in-house training programmes are designed to address your specific challenges and objectives. This ensures that the training content is directly relevant to your team’s roles and responsibilities, making the learning experience more impactful and immediately applicable.

Training several employees via public courses can be both costly and logistically difficult. With TSW’s in-house training, you save on travel and accommodation expenses, and the overall cost per delegate is significantly lowered. This makes in-house training a cost-effective solution, particularly for larger groups.

TSW’s in-house training sessions are arranged to fit your schedule, minimising operational disruptions. Whether you prefer weekdays, weekends, or evening sessions, we can accommodate your needs. Conducting training at your premises ensures your team remains in a familiar environment, enhancing the learning experience and reducing downtime.

In-house training at TSW brings your team together, fostering better communication and collaboration. Employees can share experiences and build stronger working relationships. This not only boosts morale but also promotes a unified approach to problem-solving within your organisation.

Public training sessions can pose risks when discussing company-specific issues. TSW’s in-house training guarantees confidentiality, allowing your team to freely address and resolve internal challenges. This level of discretion is crucial for maintaining a competitive edge and operational integrity.

By delivering training in the workplace, TSW ensures that employees can immediately apply what they’ve learned. This immediate integration of new skills helps in retaining knowledge and enhances overall productivity.

COSHH stands for Control OSubstances Hazardous to Health. It refers to the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002, which requires all employers to prevent or reduce their employees’ exposure to hazardous substances.

COSHH training is designed to teach people about hazardous substances, as outlined by the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH).

It’s purpose is to provide you with knowledge and understanding to stay safe when working with hazardous substances.

There is no set criterion for COSHH refresher training. However, you should consider fresh training in the following circumstances:

  • If an employee or employees are required to spend longer with a particular substance, thereby increasing their exposure
  • If you have introduced new hazardous substances in the workplace
  • If there is an accident or near-miss related to substances
  • When recruiting new staff who may have received training previously but not relating to your workplace and specific substances used

Beyond this, we recommend refresher training every three years to ensure that knowledge is fresh and is in line with current regulations and thinking.
