Dovetail Group (UK) have recently undergone a major overhaul of our in-house training policies, whilst simultaneously adopting a more outward looking position towards the industry as a whole.

We identified a shortage of quality, comprehensive training services across many sectors, and decided that with our existing training qualifications and experience among management, that we could provide a valuable service to our own staff and yours.

Dovetail Training can offer your business a wide range of training courses for individual and group bookings. These courses will be held at our dedicated training facilities across the west midlands, and are fully catered using local, independent catering companies.

Our training department is headed by Daniel Ball, who has extensive experience as an instructor for the Army Foundation College during his 11 years in the armed forces.

All our courses are OfQual regulated.

QCPR Training

At Dovetail Training, we utilise Bluetooth QCPR Technology, to enable both instructors and trainees to more effectively monitor and review CPR performance, increasing the efficiency and value of training time. QCPR is a live feedback device used to measure the quality of CPR provided during therapy, here's a video demonstration of this:

  • More effectively facilitate training for individuals and high-performance teams
  • Train in the environment of your choice
  • Assess performance results of multiple individuals in real-time
  • Provide a team debrief while also focusing on individual performances

Level 1 Fire Safety Awareness: Half day course

You will, no doubt, be well aware of the potentially devastating effects of fires in the workplace in terms of lives lost, injuries, damage to property and the environment, and to the business continuity. You may also be aware that it is believed that most fires are preventable.

It deals with how fires can occur and what to do in the event of a fire.

The qualification also provides a foundation for those employees who want to develop their basic fire safety awareness in order to assist their employer by undertaking more specific fire safety roles in the workplace to manage fire risk (e.g. as fire wardens/marshals/stewards etc).

Successful candidates will be awarded a national level 1 qualification (Level 4 in Scotland).

Level 2 Manual Handling Course (Principles and Practice)

We are all exposed at times to some form of manual handling such as lifting, carrying, pulling and pushing actions that can be compounded by simultaneous movements such as climbing or pivoting. Personal injuries resulting from incorrect manual handling in the workplace accounts for over one million working days lost per year, as well as the pain and suffering experienced by the casualties. Correct manual handling techniques can make a huge difference.

The risks arising from manual handling have been recognised by the Health and Safety Executive for many years, as evidenced in their regulations and advisory activities promoting good practice.

The Regulations require employers to provide their employees with health and safety information and training – supplemented, as necessary, with more specific information and training on manual handling injury risks and prevention.

This course provides an ideal approach to safer and more effective manual handling – not only meeting HSE recommendations, but also promoting good and safe practices in any situation.

Syllabus

A range of subjects are covered that will equip delegates to:

• Understand the reasons for safe manual handling
• Understand how manual handling risk assessments contribute to improving health and safety
• Understand the principles, types of equipment and testing requirements associated with manual handling safety
• Be able to apply safe manual handling principles
