Kentra Training Spring 2024 Newsletter

Is it Spring yet?  I don’t think the weather knows what it’s doing at the moment. I remember writing a similar thing in our Autumn newsletter, as the weather didn’t know back then either.

With over 100 different courses its hard to keep track of what we do, but we hope this list will give you an insight.  We also have the downloadable brochure on our website.  For more details on each course just drop us an email and we can send across a course syllabus with all the relevant training information.

Training Updates! 

As many of you know one of our most popular open courses is the
N019 Report of Thorough Examination course.

The program covers small lifting equipment and lifting accessories and these need to be checked and certified on a regular basis. So why not do them in-house and save some money?  By getting one or more of your employees trained they can then undertake these assessments and issue the required Reports of Thorough Examinations therefore reducing your costs.

For more details on the course, here’s a link to our website.

Safety Tips! 

April is Stress Awareness Month. The Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) has launched a Working Minds campaign to tackle stress in the workplace with five steps.

This April, Britain’s bosses are being invited to follow five simple steps to prevent and reduce stress in their workplace.  The HSE has called on employers to support workers mental health during Stress Awareness Month.

Liz Goodwill, head of the work-related stress and mental health policy team at HSE, said: “We are inviting business owners, employers and managers to join others across Britain to make a difference in five steps.”

Over the course of the month, employers are encouraged to focus on one of the campaign’s 5 Rs for each of the five weeks. They are: to Reach out and have conversations, Recognise the signs and causes of stress, Respond to any risks you’ve identified, Reflect on actions you’ve agreed and taken, and make it Routine.

Preventing work-related stress isn’t just the right thing to do for workers, it’s the law. All employers are required to prevent work related stress and to support good mental health in the workplace.

The Working Minds campaign brings together a range of tools and support to help businesses and workers including free online learning, Talking Toolkits, risk assessment templates and examples. All these are available on the HSE’s website together with more information on the campaign.

You can also speak to our colleagues, Simon and Amy,  over at Cheshire First Aid,   for more information about the fantastic Mental Health First Aid courses they offer.

A note from Norman

As many of you know Kentra Training was established in February 1997
by Norman Kennish, and we like to finish our newsletters with a quick word from him. 

As a keen gardener I’m going to be busy this weekend planting all my vegetables ready for summer.  Don’t forget its not just the big horticulture equipment that we train on, we also do the hedge trimmers, mowers and woodchippers, to name a few.   All of these pieces of kit can be dangerous if not used properly, so if you think you could benefit from some training and advice please give us a call.

Finally, I would just like to thank all our customers, staff and instructors for the continued support over the past year.

For any help or assistance please contact us.
