Christchurch and East Dorset Councils


Choose Ouch because not all training is the same!

Health and Safety Training



With many different departments within the Councils, we have the pleasure of providing several types of training both In-house and Open courses. Over the years we have delivered a range of courses for the Council, including; Fire Marshal, Conflict Resolution and First Aid training. More recently we have assisted the Council in ensuring they are compliant with Asbestos Safety legislations. This involved delivering a range of Asbestos Awareness, Duty to Manage and Non Licenced Asbestos Work courses, ensuring that all staff were trained to the appropriate standards in Asbestos Safety. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Christchurch and East Dorset Council and delivering high quality training.

What we have achieved

Working in partnership with Christchurch and East Dorset Council has developed the professional standards of over 360 staff members, including:

  • 188 members of staff have the skills to handle conflict resolution
  • 50 workers operating as Fire Marshals
  • 45 employees have received the correct level of Asbestos safety training
  • 20 delegates are now equipped with life saving skills

“All of the training Ouch has delivered for us has been excellent and professional. Whenever we have used another company to train our employees they do not met the same standards as Ouch have achieved. I look forward to working with Ouch for many more years and would highly recommend their services. Employees feedback is important to us and not only do they rate Ouch highly; they appear to really enjoy the training, so we don’t have negative feedback and achieve higher attendance. Recently Ouch delivered our Non Licensed Asbestos Work course, our employees found the course really beneficial and informative. Not only are Ouch an excellent provider; they offer real value for money. NO Ouch in the fee!”
