Non-Brand Specific Training

In the diverse world of biocides, we understand that different suppliers offer various products. Our training is intentionally designed to be non-brand specific. We focus on the fundamental understanding of biocides by their chemical names, ensuring that no matter which supplier or product you use, the core principles and safety measures are consistently covered.

Compliance with HSE

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) mandates appropriate information, instruction and training for “professional use only” biocides. Our courses align with HSE regulations and are backed with CPD approval. It is a legal requirement that COSHH Assessments of the chemicals you use and Risk Assessments for your processes are in place for domestic and commercial work.

Our safe use of biocides training has been developed to give key information about biocides so the end user understands what they are, what they do, and how they work.

Our courses cover what the HSE expects from professional users of biocides and their responsibilities of keeping themselves, the general public and the environment free from harm when using professional grade biocides.

Understand the laws and regulations that govern the biocides industry. Strict laws are in place and come with heavy penalties, including imprisonment, if broken.

Learn how to handle biocides safely and responsibly, including decanting and diluting biocides and how to create a safe system of work, keeping you safe and compliant at all times.

Our Testimonials

Don't just take our word for it, read our testimonials from industry leaders

If you are a business using professional or commercial grade chemicals, we would highly recommend that you and your business complete adequate training required by regulators such as HSE. If in the unfortunate event of an incident and a claim being submitted; it is likely insurers would look to void any policies and refuse the claim should it become clear that work has been completed outside of regulatory guidelines.
Jack Bowley
Commercial Insurance Executive
My passion for keeping people safe must have started 34 years ago. I left the Army and joined the Fire and Rescue Service and later joined the Ambulance Service going from Technician, Paramedic then Nurse and eventually qualified as an Emergency Care Practitioner. The times that I had to treat or try to resuscitate a Patient who had sustained a work related injury had an impact, it was so preventable. I retired 7 years ago and decided to work as a Health, Safety and Environment Consultant and Trainer. My philosophy is that Good Health and Safety Principles makes good Business Sense and it’s a pleasure to be associated with and helping to provide necessary training and improving HSE philosophy.

Owner of H2O Cleaning Services
I have worked in the external cleaning industry for many years, and I recognise the importance of continual professional development regarding the legislative aspect of exterior cleaning and handling chemicals safely to prevent injury and protect the environment. The HSE stipulates that training is required if you use professional grade products. This course gives you all the information, instruction and training needed to be deemed a professional user of biocides.
