Health & Safety Services

As a professional member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (Tech IOSH), a registered trainer with Trainer Courses Ltd. and with 20 years experience of managing safety in learning, interpretation, living history activities and visitor experience in heritage, I bring this perspective to my work.

With a strong emphasis on heritage learning and visitor engagement, my courses and consultancy help you to plan and deliver your programmes confidently.

These certificates are awarded through Training Courses Ltd, with whom I’m a registered trainer.

Planning for safety in learning

How do you plan for safety and health in a heritage learning programme? There are many different elements that we have to consider on top of the stories and collections that we share.

This course brings together an introduction to different legislation, regulations and considerations that impact how we work with a particular emphasis on heritage learning and engagement. Using examples from museum and heritage settings, we will discuss scenarios and themes, working through the process of risk management.

  • Week 1: An introduction to Health & Safety.
  • Week 2: Fire Safety awareness.
  • Week 3: Hazardous substances.
  • Week 4: Safeguarding children & young people.
  • Week 5: Safeguarding vulnerable adults.
  • Week 6: Food Safety.
  • Week 7: Writing risk assessments.
  • Week 8: Bringing it all together.

At the end of weeks 1 to 7 there will be a short assessment, for which participants will require a 75% pass mark to receive an e-certificate to show their learning about that subject. These certificates are awarded through Training Courses Ltd, with whom I’m a registered trainer.

Week 8 will bring all our learning together and look at ways in which we can communicate our safe management with our audiences.

£176 per delegate – Course dates to be announced soon.

In-house courses are available – please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Safety Chat

Are you planning a new activity or reviewing your current practice?

Are you wanting to talk to an independent consultant with experience in your field about an aspect of managing your programme safely?

Book a 90-120 minute consultation conversation or ‘safety chat’ with me for that fresh pair of eyes and a critical friend.

£70 per session.

Consultant

I will work with your team to review and revise your safety management systems for your heritage learning programmes. This may include risk and risk benefit management, consulting with your staff and volunteers or creating new recording procedures.

£350 per day

I found it very useful to have examples from museum learning which I could apply to my own working practice. Much more relevant than any other training I have done on it.
