The British Engines Group Becomes First Employer in the North East to Deliver NEBOSH, IOSH and IEMA Accredited Training

The British Engines Group has become the first employer in the region to be fully accredited to deliver NEBOSH, IOSH and IEMA internal training.

The accreditations will enable the group to deliver ongoing training to enhance the skills and knowledge of its workforce, improve health, safety and environment (HSE) awareness and competence, prevent accidents and nurture a positive safety culture across the business.

Alongside becoming a fully accredited National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) Corporate Learning Partner, the group is also accredited by The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and The Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA). The sought-after accreditations enable the group to deliver the following training to its employees internally:

NEBOSH Corporate Learning Partner

  • General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety
  • HSE Award in Managing Risks and Risk Assessment at Work

The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH)

  • Working Safely
  • Managing Safely

The Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA)

  • Sustainability Skills for the Workforce
  • Sustainability Skills for Managers

So far, nine senior managers and supervisors from across the group have completed their NEBOSH General Certificate training at TDR’s facility in Quorum Park, Benton. The qualification will improve their knowledge and strengthen their ability to effectively manage health and safety across the businesses.

“It’s been great working with people from around the group to deliver internal and accredited HSE courses. We’re already seeing the benefits to our staff as a result of this.”

Greg Harrison, Central HSE Trainer at the British Engines Group, who has delivered over 160 training sessions to 700 employees since joining in June 2022

Alongside the accreditations, the British Engines Group has partnered with The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) to develop an internal health and safety training programme in line with their independent ‘Course Assurance’ assessment service. The verification ensures that the training programme meets the highest standards for trainer competence and course quality.

Andy Walton CMIOSH, Head of HSE at the British Engines Group, said: “The RoSPA health and safety training programme will further strengthen and develop current workforce skills and competence, enabling us to improve safety standards beyond industry best practice levels. The programme is assured by RoSPA and must meet their stringent criteria to qualify.

“British Engines’ adoption of industry-leading training programmes, such as RoSPA, shows that the group invests heavily in the health and safety of its employees.”

As part of our commitment to continual HSE improvement, the group provides a range of additional training, including: Fire Warden and Fire Safety, Manual Handling, Abrasive Wheels, Accident Investigation, Behavioural Safety, COSHH, Emergency Spill Response, Health & Safety for Representatives, ISO 4001 Awareness, ISO 45001 Awareness, Point of Work Risk Assessment, Risk Assessment, Slinging & Lifting and Working at Height.
