Octavian will provide 10 certificated eLearning courses, offering winners chance to gain official certification
Octavian Security, the leading UK security provider, has unveiled a competition to coincide with the launch of the newly accredited Octavian Training Academy, based at its headquarters in Nottingham.
Coinciding with World Health & Safety Day on April 28th, Octavian will be giving away 10 certificated eLearning courses, which will offer winners the chance to gain an official certification covering the basics of Health & Safety.
Academy offers range of courses from security training to risk assessments
Offering a range of courses, from security training to risk assessments and food hygiene qualifications, the Octavian Training Academy has been launched to up skill existing Octavian staff, provide additional training for its clients and also open up learning opportunities for members of the public.
Earl Knight, Commercial Director and Head of HR at Octavian, said: “Health and Safety in the workplace is exceptionally important – and employers are also waking up to the importance of up skilling their staff in order to aid the development of their workforces.”
Competition offers individuals chance to gain new qualification
“World Health & Safety Day is the perfect time to raise these issues and put the steps in place to resolve them. Our competition offers both companies and individuals the chance to gain a new qualification and explore the benefits of additional training and eLearning, so it’s a great opportunity.”
Kevin Johnston, Head of Training & Development at Octavian, added: “In a world where over 2.2 million people are killed each year from unsafe working practices, it is essential to have an educational support mechanism that enables people across the world to have access to relevant health and safety training. It is important for international training providers to be able to find an awarding body that not only understands the significance of health and safety in the workplace, but that also understands the implications of implementing this on a country by country basis.”
“Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance offers a support mechanism by way of internationally recognised qualifications, which not only provide learners with a sound understanding of individual health and safety in the workplace, but also a platform to progress their learning in order to be able to support other people. As a result, Octavian is able to offer businesses across the world an innovative form of health and safety education.”
