PROVIDING FUN AND INTERACTIVE TRAINING FOR A SAFER WORKPLACE
Rather, watch paint dry than sign up for a health and safety course? Unfortunately, health and safety training is often perceived as a necessary evil. At Kellsafe, we believe that even the driest subjects can be brought to life and delivered in an entertaining fashion.
We adopt various delivery methods to appeal to all learning styles, and we use interactive exercises and quizzes where appropriate to test knowledge and understanding. In addition to our standard certified courses, we also develop customised and bespoke training and team building packages. This is a tailored service to your organisation’s specific needs. All our courses can be delivered in bite-sized sessions at your premises, with flexible timings to fit intricate shift patterns if required, ensuring minimal disruption to your business operations.
STANDARD CERTIFICATE COURSES
An external body regulates our certified courses, and delegates will be awarded a nationally recognised qualification, subject to passing the assessment criteria. Delegates will be awarded a nationally recognised qualification.
Our trainers can help ease the pressure by delivering training broken down into bite-sized modules at any time, day or night, seven days a week, accommodating even the most complex shift patterns. This gives our clients full compliance with statutory training requirements, like fire marshal and first aid training, with the benefit of minimum downtime and loss of production.

We also offer specialist courses, including paediatric first aid courses which focus on first aid for babies and children. For anyone who requires knowledge but does not need certification, e.g. if the training is not work-related, we can offer non-certified courses to reduce the cost.
For organisations who want to take their first aid training to the next level, we can add a theatrical element by providing actors with fake blood and wounds to play the part of casualties.
We also offer refresher training and requalification courses for existing first aid trained personnel.
All our auditor training packages include interactive exercises whereby delegates can put their new skills to the test. Delegates will be given the opportunity to apply their knowledge in a practical desktop scenario. This will include reviewing documentary evidence, interviewing ‘auditees’ played by our instructors, and site inspections.
Manual Handling Training
We provide manual handling risk assessment training for those responsible for undertaking risk assessments in your organisation, including team leaders, safety reps and managers.
In partnership with our ergonomic and manual handling experts, we can also offer a full package comprising an initial gap analysis exercise to understand the types of manual handling activities undertaken by your workforce.
Bespoke on the job, training packages can be developed and delivered, along with support for managers and supervisors responsible for supervising the tasks. A post-training review can be provided to ensure that knowledge is retained and applied in the workplace.
Train the Trainer
Attendance will equip those responsible for training delivery with a greater understanding of the theory behind learning, including but not limited to, how to recognise and appeal to the various learning styles, and how to check knowledge retention.
Team-Building / Corporate Values
Behavioural Safety Training
Food Safety in Catering
The course will clarify aspects of food safety, which many of us believe are complicated and daunting.
The importance of food safety in catering is underpinned by health and safety legislation, which requires employers to establish policies and procedures and ensure their employees receive appropriate training.
Successful candidates will be awarded a national Level 2 (Level 5 in Scotland) qualification, which will provide an ideal platform for higher-level training or career development.
IOSH Working Safely
The first-class, jargon-free content is based on what people need to know in practice, and not off-putting legal language. Working Safely is for people at any level, in any sector worldwide, who need a grounding in the essentials of safety and health. It gives everyone at work an understanding of why they must ‘work safely’ – and does it enjoyably.
Health and Safety in the Workplace
All aspects of Health and Safety are important to a business, whether you are an employee, contractor or supplier. This half-day course will benefit both the learner and the business, ensuring that the working environment is safe and healthy.
We also offer a 1-day level 2 qualification in health and safety. This course is suitable for all staff. However, it may be of particular interest to those who accept a health and safety role, including a safety representative within their organisation.
Successful candidates will be awarded a national Level 2 (Level 5 in Scotland) qualification, which will provide an ideal platform for higher-level training or career development, for example the IOSH Working or Managing Safely Course.
IOSH Managing Safely
Managing Safely is designed for managers and supervisors in any sector and organisation worldwide. They won’t suddenly become safety experts – but they’ll get up-to-speed on the practical actions they need to take, and gain the knowledge and tools to tackle the safety and health issues they’re responsible for.
Importantly, Managing Safely makes a compelling case for safety and health being an integral part of day-to-day management and business.

If you are a client seeking to commission a construction project, we can help you understand your legal duties under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015. Attendance in this course will help you check that your appointed duty holders, including the Principal Contractor and Principal Designer, are fulfilling their duties under regulations, and demonstrate that you are responsible for your duties.
This training will help prevent accidents and ill-health, and avoid unnecessary litigation and potential fines. This course is suitable for all Duty Holders cited under the CDM 2015 Regulations.
I received very positive feedback from the staff who attended the three-day first aid at work course, with one ex-nurse saying it was the best first aid training she has ever had.
Fiona | Head Teacher | Aston and Cote C of E Primary School | Oxfordshire
Kellsafe provided us with all the guidance, direction and support we needed as small but growing construction businesses. We know they are available to support our company whenever we need it. Kelly’s attention to detail and excellent customer service have been invaluable to us.
Simon Walker | Director Flint Property Group
As our family business expanded, we recognised the legal requirement to have documented policies and procedures in place. We engage with Kellsafe to create a user-friendly health and safety management system with relevant policies, forms, and templates to suit our needs. In addition, the Kellsafe team developed a construction phase plan template and various inspection checklists to support us in fulfilling our responsibilities as Principal Contractor, which we adapt and use at the start of every new project. As an additional service, Kelly personally made a successful application for Safe Contractor on our behalf, which allows us to demonstrate to our clients that we have the necessary health and safety arrangements in place to ensure the safety of our workers, visitors and contractors on our sites.
Rebecca Simmonds | Refurb Property Renovations
We have worked with Kellsafe since 2017 when we engaged Kelly Holifield to support our company with its health and safety, following the retirement of our previous industry-specific health and safety consultant. Kelly is highly qualified within the health and safety industry and has proven herself to be very technically knowledgeable, as well as extremely personable and helpful. Our former health and safety consultant worked solely within the laundry industry, and we wondered whether we would miss out on that in-house knowledge. However, we have not found that to be the case, and Kelly has been able to use the experience she has gained across the many organisations she has worked with to provide broad-reaching advice and support. She provides twice-yearly audits, as well as ad hoc advice whenever needed. Her reports have been detailed, yet concise, and have provided a good review of how we are doing. The recommendations have been well organised and with good advice, not only on what standard was achieved, but also on how to achieve higher standards. Last year, she suggested CTS should apply to ROSPA for a health and safety award, which we applied for at the end of January 2020. As a result, we have achieved a Gold Award, which we were delighted about. We would definitely not have entered without Kelly’s encouragement and belief in us and our health and safety practices. We would highly recommend Kelly’s services. She provides an extremely professional service, but is also supportive and approachable. We have continued to retain her services and have just renewed her annual contract again.

Kelly is an excellent example of teaching with compassion and concern for her pupils. She makes all aspects of learning pleasurable, and is thoughtful, thorough, and understanding with all levels of participants. Kelly gets 10 out of 10 from me, and I’m sure she will get the same from everyone.
Carol | Aston Mile Farm
I highly recommend KellSafe, having just undertaken the IOSH Managing Safely. I came away from the course after learning a huge amount about my responsibilities and accountability regarding Health and Safety. All the sessions were engaging and relevant, delivered in a well-structured format with that all-important injection of humour. Kelly, who trained us, was incredibly knowledgeable and used industry-specific examples tailored to each delegate in the course, this made the content even more relevant and interesting. Lastly, we were provided with effective and fun revision sessions, which resulted in one of us winning chocolate! (More importantly, it resulted in us all passing). Overall, I have come away from the course not only to be more confident, but to be able to better discharge my managerial duties regarding Health & Safety.
Simon Tudor | IOSH Course Delegate
We have used Kelly for numerous training opportunities, including IOSH Managing Safely, Manual Handling Training and Auditor Training. Kelly is passionate about Health and Safety, and this is apparent in her delivery. When she makes the subject matter fun and interesting, the feedback we have received from all our colleagues is always positive. Kelly can also cater to your requirements, and she has done this for us on many occasions.
Neil Eastwood | EHS Compliance Manager | Noble Foods
My gardening business recently expanded, as did my team, and I need guidance and help to become HSE compliant. I couldn’t have made a better choice with Kellsafe. Kelly has been professional, competent, and reliable, and has put considerable time into developing a bespoke Health & Safety Policy, Risk Assessments, and COSHH Guidance. We had to meet several times over this process to fully understand the processes of my business. She was thorough in her approach and gained an in-depth understanding of my company, which was reflected in the policies she produced. Kelly also held an H&S training morning, which included a Basic Life Support training course for my whole team. It is well structured, interactive, and covers all facets of risk in the workplace. This helped me understand how to train my team and do toolbox talks in the future. Kelly was a pleasure to work with, always prompt with replies, and continued the work with me until I was thoroughly happy with every aspect of the whole system H&S Management System she had developed. I would highly recomment.
Owner | Rivermead Gardening
I attended the IOSH Managing Safety course run by Kelly Holifield in January 2019. With previously limited H&S experience, along with seven other attendees from various backgrounds (from Production to Marketing), I now fully appreciate the importance of H&S. I have a far more comprehensive understanding of how to manage risks and effectively apply H&S. Kelly’s teaching approach made the course both interesting and informative, and, dare I say it, enjoyable! As a direct result of this course, I have secured new clients, as I can now offer this additional and valuable service.
Kelly conducted an initial health and safety assessment at our holiday rental property, conducted a risk assessment throughout, advised on what steps we should take to mitigate potential risks, and also drafted a safety information notice that informs all guests of the steps they should take to ensure a safe holiday. I’ve since asked Kelly to return to ensure that the updates we’ve made to the house are sufficient. Kelly is very easy to work with, communicates clearly and succinctly, and has been entirely pragmatic in her approach. We would thoroughly recommend Kelly conduct similar work.

We have worked with Kelly and Kellsafe Ltd since 2017. Since then, she has provided fire training, manual handling, and refresher training to all staff. More importantly, Kelly has provided training and support to 2 members of staff to successfully complete the IOSH Managing Safety Certification successfully. Kellsafe is assisting the company with refreshing our risk assessments to become more robust and keep the company informed of any new legislation that may impact our industry. Kelly is informative, professional and approachable, and puts staff and management alike at ease in her presence. I recommend that anyone consider Kellsafe for all their health and safety requirements.
Managing Director | Holt Broadcast Services
Kelly was first introduced to us in 2017 and has since transformed all aspects of our Health & Safety practices, which has seen immediate results. Kelly, along with the Kellsafe team, has helped identify areas of improvement across the board and has helped us acquire the right tools to ensure the safety of our staff and visitors while on the premises. Kelly has helped us write COSHH assessments, vital when considering the various chemicals we use, and has provided staff with certified training courses that include Fire Safety, Manual Handling and First Aid. Kelly has also provided staff with the IOSH management safety course, enabling our workforce to keep up with the best possible practices daily. Kelly and her team are a pleasure to work with, and I would thoroughly recommend using Kellsafe for any of your Health and Safety needs.
