Peoplesafe appoint new trainer for revamped education programme

19 September 2016

Lone worker experts Peoplesafe have taken on a new training coordinator to help roll out their revamped education programme.

Ross Arrand will play a key role in delivering the new training courses, which have been designed to help employers look after lone workers and embed health and safety culture into the workplace.

Ross has joined the team from the Newcastle College Group, where he worked as a regional officer with a focus on learning and development functions.

He said: “Educating employers around lone worker safety is vitally important and I’m delighted to be in a sector where good training is so valued. I’m looking forward to helping to deliver these new training sessions, which lead the way in terms of lone worker safety education.”

Peoplesafe’s new CPD approved training courses range from two-hour executive briefings to one-day workshops, and cover seven topics including device training, solidifying culture, conflict management and creating personal safety champions.

The structured sessions are available to anyone in the UK, regardless of whether they are existing Peoplesafe customers. And those already taking on the training include employers and staff in industries such as housing, engineering and utilities.

As well as delivering their own training courses, Peoplesafe also regularly work with national charity The Suzy Lamplugh Trust, delivering joint workshops around lone worker safety up and down the country.

Jenny Barber, senior trainer at Peoplesafe, said: “Comprehensive training is essential if safety initiatives are to be successful, and education is an important part of the service we offer. We’re delighted to welcome Ross to the team as we roll out our new courses.”

Peoplesafe, which has its headquarters in South Yorkshire, provide simple and lightweight equipment, monitoring services and safety training, aimed at keeping employees as safe as possible.

They provide an NSI Gold accredited service, which is the highest possible industry recognition. The service is fully compliant with the British Standard for lone worker provision (BS8484).
