Health and Safety Vettings
What do we do?
Prospect Training Services offer a Health and Safety workplace vetting service to suit your requirements. This will also help reassure you that that your pupils are safe in the workplace and your duty of care towards the pupil has not been compromised.
At PTS, we believe as a school, you would like:
- A dedicated coordinator to plan, organise and be the link contact with your school, the employer and the student.
- A set of qualified and professionally trained health and safety field officers across the county.
- A comprehensive and current database that provides complete management of the vetting process.
- An experienced team who developed the tried and tested service from EBP and Trident based on the Safe Learner Concept.
"I met with two members of the Prospect Training Services team and my concerns were instantly alleviated. They were incredibly knowledgeable and up-to-date, and I was provided with all of the information that I needed and more. I left the meeting feeling very reassured. I was also very grateful of all of the advice I had been offered without feeling like I was having a sale pushed onto me. Representatives were clearly very passionate about their roles and this was evident in their approach to our meeting. As a school, we booked our Health and Safety checks with Prospect Training Services, and the service we received was impeccable. I received regular updates, and was given further updates whenever I needed. I didn't ever have to chase data or information, and was very impressed by the level of service that the team were able to offer at such a busy time in the year. Whether you are seeking advice in this area or looking to recruit a team to complete Health and Safety checks for your school, I cannot recommend Prospect Training Services enough. Their professionalism, attitude, service and attention to detail made our Work Experience programme so much easier to run, and it definitely would not have gone ahead without their involvement."
