RoSPA opens new skills training centre

Published:  19 May, 2014

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has opened a new practical training centre to provide hands-on learning experiences for workers in the healthcare and manufacturing sectors.

RoSPA’s Training Centre, at Kings Norton Business Centre in Birmingham, comprises a hospital suite with beds and lifting equipment, three classrooms and an industrial training room with a power press and abrasive wheels equipment.

In addition to being used for safer people handling training for healthcare workers and industrial skills training for manufacturing workers, it will also host the vast majority of RoSPA’s Birmingham-based occupational safety and health courses, including driver and fleet solutions courses.

The centre is in walking distance of Kings Norton station and village, has on-site parking, is accessible from the local motorways and includes two kitchens for refreshment breaks, plus a computer area for display screen equipment training.

RoSPA is one of the country’s leading providers of occupational health and safety services and support, helping firms take action to ensure their workers can go home to their families, safe and healthy at the end of each day. This is an important part of RoSPA’s mission to save lives and reduce injuries. As the UK’s family safety charity, with a history stretching back more than 97 years, this mission covers all ages and stages of life.
