We are specialist providers for all major Health & Safety courses. Delivering nationally recognised Health and Safety accreditation schemes, as well as high quality programmes designed for individual company needs.
Global Horizon Skills works with some of Northern Ireland’s leading construction firms to provide them with training solutions that fit the needs of complex projects and client demands.
We believe that through exceptional training, leading to certification known throughout the construction industry your know how and reputation can shine through and help you win contracts, with your clients knowing they are working with a safe and reputable outfit. Great training is a win-win situation for everybody.
Think of the IOSH Managing Safely course, this course delivers an essential risk management and health and safety understanding, with practical considerations that you would recognise how to put into practice on-the-job. Great for managers and supervisors to be able to manage the safety of themselves and their teams. IOSH is one of the worlds largest health and safety organisations. It’s great for group bookings if you’re investing in ensuring your firm stays up to date with the best practices and know-how to manage the very real dangers that arise consistently on a construction site daily.
There is also the SMSTS (Site Managers Safety Training Scheme) course. This in-depth course is designed to serve those with the responsibilities in planning, organising, monitoring and coordinating members of staff, for example as a Site Manager would. The legislation is covered as well as risk assessment, controlling hazards and adequate communication to ensure the best chances of a safe environment throughout construction projects. Your firm and your clients can depend on this training, as it’s industry-standard and the backbone of the UK’s first class approach to working safely.
To apply for most CSCS cards you have to pass a health and safety test, and demonstrate your competence.
CSCS Testing is offered at our Omagh site. A new 24-hour booking system has been put in place, however all tests must be pre-booked at least 48 hours in advance for administration purposes. No tests will be launched on the system without pre-booking*.
The computer-based tests can be completed quickly with flexible test times available - including evening and weekend slots. Foreign Language voice overs are available and assistance can be provided to candidates who have learning difficulties.
[*In extenuating circumstances or in the case of an emergency circumstance, ITCs may be able to book a Test within 48 hours. In such circumstances, the ITC must make a record of the specific reason(s) for allowing the Test. This record must be made available for auditing purposes. CITB reserves the right to remove this facility from ITCs at its sole discretion where concerns are identified]
