UXO safety awareness

CPD accredited unexploded ordnance safety training and toolbox talks for construction workers, infrastructure companies and emergency first responders from the leaders in explosive threat mitigation, SafeLane Global.

Explosive ordnance disposal experts have created this industry leading unexploded ordnance (UXO) training programme.  It’s ideal for construction workers, those conducting intrusive works (e.g., infrastructure, ground workers, miners) and emergency first responders.

As a responsible employer, committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of your staff, SafeLane’s continuing professional development accredited unexploded ordnance awareness training is the right choice.

What does the CPD accredited unexploded ordnance safety awareness training cover?

The training covers:

  • relevant historical information relating to the types of bombs and munitions that still contaminate the land you’re working on,
  • ordnance identification,
  • site safety precautions,
  • actions if a suspicious object is found during the course of the works, and
  • management review safety planning

How is training delivered?

Each course is tailored to you, the client.  Consideration is given to the location you’re working in, and the likely threats your staff could encounter.

Courses can be delivered face-to-face, on site, at your offices or at SafeLane’s offices.

The multimedia training courses have interactive elements and are designed to engage your staff and hold their interest. 

Trainers bring inert items of ordnance, encourage interaction and are always praised for making their courses enlightening and entertaining.

Feedback from a recent course attendee:

Nigel [the trainer] was very engaging and had a fantastic presence, he managed to keep all the crew interested (it’s a hard thing to do) [and] the inert training aids were a nice addition to the instruction we usually receive.  The presentation, like I’ve said, had great content and was very relevant to us as firefighters.”  Ali Iles, firefighter, UK.

Can the courses be delivered remotely?

In a word, yes.  If you’re based internationally, courses can be delivered remotely.  SafeLane has recently received this excellent feedback on a remotely delivered course:

“Early feedback is very positive.  You set the tone very well and the material was perfect in providing an understating of the threat, the history of how it developed and what we could expect to find in these project areas and how to respond.  You also increased the awareness of how real these incidents and finds are in this area.  We will now work on increasing the awareness and ensure appropriate actions and briefings are put in place.” Regional Security & Crisis Manager, Europe & CIS (energy sector client, Russia).

The value of CPD accredited courses:

As the courses are accredited by the CPD Certification Service, all attendees receive attendance and completion certification and accrue structured CPD /active learning hours towards their own annual continuing professional development targets.

As an employer, your staff will value your investment in their personal development; additionally, you will benefit from the fact your staff are more highly trained and motivated.

“I cannot thank you enough for sending [the trainer] down to see us today!  The presentation was absolutely perfect!!  The watch thought it was amazing and enjoyed it thoroughly.” Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service.
