Written testimonials from past course attendees

"I have found the whole experience of doing an NVQ in Occupational Health and Safety hassle-free. The tutors at British Safety Council had a deep understanding of the NVQ standard. I would recommend British Safety Council as a strong provider."
Phil Hoyle
Health and Safety Manager, Adams Food Ingredients Ltd, Meadow Cheese Co Ltd

"The course [British Safety Council's Level 6 Diploma] provided me with a greater confidence about the world of health and safety. I would recommend it as it had excellent support available through experienced lecturers and interactive sessions, concise study notes & networking with other industries."
Robert Bullen

"Our British Safety Council membership quickly proved to be very worthwhile. We found the e-learning courses very innovative, user friendly and interactive. We wish to continue our relationship with them for years to come."

Managing Director, Aramis Contracting LLC

“The British Safety Council provides compact, professionally managed and well-presented delivery of the NEBOSH National General Certificate, Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management.  Run at the Chancellor’s Road office, the courses provide a great opportunity to interact with and learn from the experiences of other Health and Safety professionals from a very wide range of sectors – something that on-line courses of study simply cannot do.  Knowledgeable presenters are able to focus the material on the day-to-day management of Health and Safety in the workplace, as well as on suitable preparation for achieving the NEBOSH qualifications.  Perfectly paced, tightly managed and delivered in a first-class learning environment, these courses are thoroughly recommended.”
Derek Hart
SHEF Manager, Christ's Hospital School

"There are lots of good reputable training providers but I am more than happy that I chose the British Safety Council for my studies."
Ian Cunningham
Health and Safety Manager

"The NEBOSH Diploma course itself has given me the required core knowledge to enable me competently undertake my day to day role. The fact that I also achieved the highest mark for the NEBOSH Diploma Coutse has certainly increased my confidence and faith in the decisions that I make on behalf of my company to keep our employees safe."
John Lynch
SHEQ Director, Lyndon Scaffolding PLC
