Armour’s safety training doesn’t just keep your people healthy and safe, it’ll improve productivity, engage your staff, and enhance your reputation as a good employer.

We firmly believe that safety training isn’t about reciting regulations and laws, we make potentially dull courses interesting, engaging and relevent and we back it up with real life anecdotes and examples.

We can carry out training at your premises; at our offices; at an external venue of your choice; or virtually. You can decide what works best for you and your people.

Some of our most popular courses are listed below, these can be tailored and refined to fit into exactly what your organisation needs. Alternatively, we can create bespoke training for you from scratch.
