We are starting to talk to our customers about getting back to work and how to prepare for this. So come and join in the discussion on how we are helping businesses achieve this. Louise presented on a Webinar in her Capacity as IOSH Vice-President which attracted over 2000 viewers. The recording of this can be accessed by clicking here.

Knowledge Hub offers you the opportunity to ask Louise Hosking, Chartered Safety & Health Practitioner, health and safety questions about your business and the wellbeing of your staff. Louise has 29 years of experience in occupational safety and health and is also an elected Vice-President of the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health

Health and Safety at work cannot have a day off and with fewer staff or people taking on roles they are not familiar with during the current crisis – remain vigilant. Keep up your normal Health and Safety routines but do prioritise.

We’re here to help in any way we can – for more details visit Covid-19 adapted services 



Many employees are on furlough right now or unable to work. We have adapted our training to offer tutor-led online training courses in a range of topics which suit where we are now. Some of these sessions are free, and some sessions have a nominal charge. Whilst on furlough training can be undertaken. Our short online pay for sessions are free to our existing clients on pay monthly bundle agreements. We can potentially offer concessions to company’s looking to put a number of their teams through the sessions. The feedback from sessions we have already run has been excellent and it is proving to be an effective method of imparting knowledge at this time which we are likely to continue to offer.

Hosking Associates is an approved IOSH training provider.
