Practical Safety Leadership Skills Programme (PSL)

A full-day experiential training course exploring effective communication skills within the context of safety.

Going home healthy at the end of a day’s work is not something to aspire to: it is something all of us should expect everyone to do. This expectation will require not just a vigilant awareness of the environment we are working in, and the people we are working with, but it also requires an honest assessment of how we perform under a variety of circumstances.

The PSL Skills programme looks at what we do and what we say, how we do it and how we say it and focuses on the impact we have on others.

About the Day

‘Whoever learnt how to ride a bike by reading a book?’ – PSL Course Participant

The day is a practical exploration of effective safety leadership, communication skills and personal impact that is designed to create maximum engagement and to leave participants with a clear understanding that – when it comes to safety – everyone is a leader, and that walking by is not an option.

Core Learning Environment/Activities:
An experiential-based training offer in an interactive learning space, based on high personal participation in a range of exercises and scenarios, in a safe, constructive and stimulating environment.

Learning Outcomes:
Participants are provided with a common safety communication toolkit: the confidence to access a practical set of behavioural skills to challenge themselves and others through positive engagement.


Interaction is the way forward. Totally engaged and focused. More of it please. Good job, well done.

I have attended many H&S courses over my 30-odd years in the business, including NEBOSH, but never have I felt quite so engaged. The topic was covered brilliantly and the interaction was like nothing I’d experienced.

David Lane, Engineer Maintenance and Operations Essex Highways

Perfect mix of office and ops. Made us see H&S in a different way.

Ringway Jacobs, Transport for Buckinghamshire

Thank you and your team for a truly memorable and inspiring day, we had hugely positive feedback from all areas of our business. You make a difference.

Nick Offord, Managing Director, Red7Marine

Very effective way of training and needs to be deployed at all levels. Gets people to be more aware of their interactions with others.

Ringway Jacobs, Cheshire East

An excellent day. You learn most when out of your comfort zone. I recommend this to everyone.



Great day, great course. Made me think outside the box and challenge myself out of my comfort zone.

Workshop participant

All very useful, and no Health & Safety mantras being preached. All good, honest and usable skills.

Workshop participant

Probably the most useful first day on a project I’ve had.

Excellent, constructive feedback given to us all. No-one felt intimidated.
