A successful business, established in 1994 by Paul Meek a former Operations Director of an ambulance service. Throughout Paul's career, he was exposed daily to the consequences of poorly managed risks, and this is what spurred Paul to establish Solutions Training, he wanted to bridge the visible but avoidable gaps in risk management and in particular health & safety education and the development of the equipment used to aid safer transportation of people.
Our team are all members of the “National Back Exchange” and have been contributors to various working groups on developing good practice since 1995, including research into “what constitutes effective moving and handling training” performed by the Ergonomics Department at Loughborough University and in partnership developed topic-related awards at Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4 which are on the regulated qualifications framework.
We have successfully designed a wide range of training programmes to assist organisations with managing risk effectively.
Paul and his team's continued vision of improvement to managing risk by developing people and his operational experience has helped many companies and individuals improve their knowledge and technical skills, which has proven to reduce risk in the workplace.
We offer educationally accredited training qualifications ranging from Level 1, 2, 3, and 4 awards, including Moving & Handling, Conflict Resolution, Fire Warden, and First Aid, all of which are on the QNUK-regulated qualifications framework.
