Brothers of Charity in safe hands thanks to IOSH training

Brothers of Charity are a major provider of support in the Scottish Borders, with their services focused on the person and their unique abilities, needs, interests and aspirations.

@BordersCollege Department of Enterprise and Innovation (DEBI) recently hooked up with the Charity to deliver an online IOSH Managing Safely course, which was provided using the Flexible Workforce Development (FWDF) Funding.

The charity’s Managers, which included Michelle Devlin, Isla Thomson, Steven Jackson, Dawn Barratt and Alicja Pilisczuk, all took part in the training, designed to get them up to speed on the practical actions they need to handle health and safety issues within their teams.

The delivery of the course took place over a three-day period, with students provided with the necessary course materials prior to the class commencing. The topics of the course included assessing risk, controlling risk and identifying hazards within the working environment.

The charity has a long tradition of care and a modern outlook, constantly looking to improve and develop the support they offer and having the skills to help run the organisation safely is essential.

Candidate comments from the training session included:

“I would rate the course as 5 star!”

“The course ran smoothly and I experienced no difficulties attending.”
