Training Analysis & Training Management Systems

Training can often be seen as unimportant, particularly where budgetary constraints are at the fore.

A more positive perspective is that correct levels of training can improve productivity, skill levels and compliance whilst contributing significantly to safe systems of work.

Training does not happen ‘by chance’ and a great deal of work is carried out to ensure that training is designed and delivered according to defined standards with robust governance and record keeping.

At Key Survival Equipment, not only do we design and deliver training, we conduct ‘Training Health Checks’  and create Training Management Systems to ensure that the correct levels of compliance and governance are in place.
