Well, are you? It’s an important question for any business owner or director. There are approved codes of practice – ACOPs – covering many areas of business operation.
Although ACOPs are not the law, everything in an Approved Code of Practice has special legal status. If an incident happens and your business has not been following recognised best practice, then the courts are far more likely to find against you.
At First Class Safety we specialise in helping businesses comply with their legal obligations and make sure they are following best practice in every area – from shop floor to office and from practical safety to paperwork.
On this site you can find out more about us and the services we offer – both on your premises and at our dedicated FCS Training Academy near Junction 1 of the M6.

“I have been working with Ian at First Class Safety for the last 10 years. We use First Class Safety for all our logistics staff mhe training, IOSH Working Safely for our health & safety reps, IOSH Managing Safely for our logistics management team, as well as train the trainer manual handling course for our logistics trainers. Ian has also provided bespoke courses such as racking training. I would recommend First Class Safety due to Ian and his team being professional and that all training is both competitive and to a high standard.”

“After 30 years in business the best we have come across.”
After contacting FCS with an enquiry into various workplace training courses, I have been very impressed with the customer service and the excellent training we have had delivered on our site by Ian and his team. The feedback from staff members attending FCS courses has been of great enthusiasm and praise for the content and the engaging delivery which is key in getting all the important information across. After 30 years in business the best we have come across. So a big thankyou to First Class Safety and look forward to booking more training with you.

“Ian is always on hand for any advice i need”
I have been working with FCS since 2013 and have used the following services: Fork Lift Truck Training/refresher, Abrasive wheel training, H & S for managers & risk assessment training, IOSH Working Safely And Managing Safely and currently looking at Spill Measures training. I have found working with Ian and his team a very pleasing experience, they have always been very professional and accommodating to my training requirements. Prices are reasonable and the training provided has been enjoyable, useful and knowledgeable helping us to maintain H & S requirements regarding training. I have received positive comments from the employees who have received the training and Ian is always on hand for any advice I need. I would have no hesitation in recommending FCS, they are professional, reliable and I look forward to continuing our working relationship and continued H & S training with FCS.

First Class Safety was an easy choice for JRP when choosing to book our H&S courses. The courses were very local for us, and were run by experienced tutors who were able to get the course content across with interesting facts and knowledge. The new premises are impressive, with plenty of room. I have studied for the NEBOSH General Certificate recently at First Class Safety and we have also put employees through First Aid courses here

Many thanks to the friendly team at First Class Safety for the training they gave me for the NEBOSH National General Certificate. Safety can be a mundane topic to study. However, the First Class Safety team made it interactive and enjoyable, with many personal case studies & anecdotes from a former HSE Inspector to liven it up and make it easier to learn, remember and, most importantly, apply. Safety knowledge is only beneficial when it is applied to help keep people safe from harm. First Class Safety offer a wide range of practical safety services. I look forward to using their services again in the near future. My practical safety services provider of choice.
