COVID-Secure training continues at Browns Health & Safety

The safety of our staff and visitors is out top priority, so we're committed to ensuring we're a COVID-Secure training environment after government restrictions are lifted.

As legal restrictions on course numbers and social distancing have been removed we want to allow more people to train with us while continuing to offer a safe environment.

  • We're increasing course numbers from 6 to 8. This will mean we can offer more training dates, but will also allow for distancing in our training room.
  • Government guidance is for people to continue to wear face coverings when in crowded spaces. As we can't ensure distancing in circulation spaces of the office we ask that visitors and staff wear face a covering while moving around the building. This will help to keep others safe, but we understand if you're unable to cover your mouth and nose.
  • When you visit us we will ask you to sign our COVID-19 questionnaire so we can keep details for 21 days for Test and Trace. We also use the document in case of a fire so we know who is in the building.
  • We'll continue to provide extra cleaning throughout the day so frequently-touched surfaces are regularly cleaned.
  • Ventilation is the best way to reduce the spread of COVID-19, so we'll continue to keep windows and doors open throughout the building.

Take a look at our  COVID-19 training procedures.

Our consultants will continue to work from home where appropriate and wear face coverings when completing audits. We'll also continue to provide hand sanitiser for visits so you can be confident that we're taking as many precautions as possible.

 

 


New MD for Browns Health & Safety

We’re pleased to announce we’ve appointed Karen Poole as our new Managing Director.

Karen has worked for Browns for 13 years and knows the company inside-out, having worked as a consultant, trainer and operations manager.

The new position will see her oversee the management of the company, but she will continue to provide advice, guidance and support to clients.

Director and Owner Steve Ruddick said: “I’m delighted to be handing the day-to-day running of the company to Karen, she has supported Browns for over a decade and I know has some exciting ideas for the future.”

The news is part of Steve’s five-year retirement plans which include reducing his management role to concentrate on training and enjoying time away from the office. He will remain sole owner of the company.

Karen added: “We’re a close-knit team at Browns and I want to ensure we continue to provide a personal and tailored service to clients and delegates.”
