About First4Safety

Our Story

Based just outside Welwyn Garden City in Hertfordshire First4Safety have been working with IOSH since 1999. We are long-time IOSH Chartered members and deliverers of IOSH courses via face to face and online training.

Our Service

We have a fantastic relationship with our clients, both individuals and companies. It is great to have built so many relationships and be the people to call for so many when it comes to IOSH training.

Our courses are fully supported and we take a great deal of pride in our 100% success rate. 

Reviews like the recent one below are what we strive to achieve. We are not just looking for you to get the certificate at a great price, we want delegates to go away with a real understanding and appreciation of Health and Safety within their workplace. 

“I am a little apprehensive regarding e learning course as other companies take your money and don’t give you the support you need however I was very wrong with First4safety. Tom has been fantastic! I cannot sing enough praise – especially in answering questions, queries and clarifying areas along my IOSH course. The e learning coarse is structured well and gives feedback as you work your way through the units. I have already recommend this course to a colleague as First4Safety (without any doubt) is value for money!”
