Local Authority Safety Certification Training

We have developed a training course on Local Authority Safety Certification.

The one-day online course is designed to support those responsible for safety certification.  It will cover the following subjects:

  • Legislation
  • Process and administration, including safety certification guidance
  • Safety Advisory Groups

The SGSA team will go through each subject.  There will also be plenty of opportunities for questions, discussions and scenario planning.  The session will be interactive and include group exercises to allow you to talk through issues with your peers.

This session is highly recommended to ensure that legal requirements around safety certification are being met.
