Welcome to Dimension - People Safe
Who We Are
Dimension – People Safe is a member of the Dimension Group of companies. It specialises in designing and delivering people friendly health and safety courses encompassing the core syllabi First Aid at Work and Emergency First Aid at Work and the requirements of many national governing bodies. Clients have different needs and programmes are designed to meet them.
All courses are delivered by professional trainers whose prime focus is upon the needs of the students, ensuring that courses are enjoyable and educational. The trainers’ backgrounds include education, the ambulance service, the fire service, mountain rescue, sports and industry. Most trainers have children of their own and are thus familiar with paediatric illnesses and injuries. With many years of experience as teachers and trainers they are able to offer a range of styles and techniques to make learning fun, real and lasting.
In addition to their Health & Safety qualifications trainers have additional medical, educational, instructing and coaching qualifications awarded by leading national and in some cases international governing bodies.
Dimension – People Safe is pleased to be able to list amongst its many clients several midland hospitals, schools and educational establishments across the country, nurseries, several Chambers of Commerce and training providers, numerous leading tour operators and the Football Association. Courses are being run in the UK, Europe and have been run in Burma (Myanmar), Nepal, Hong Kong, Singapore and Italy.
Dimension People Safe delivers both regulated and non-regulated courses. Until recent times First Aid at Work and Emergency First Aid at Work (previously Appointed Person) courses were regulated by the Health and Safety Executive. This regulating role is now the responsibility of OFQUAL – the government department (Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulations).
Regulated Courses – Dimension People Safe is approved by Qualsafe Awards, an awarding organisation recognised by Ofqual to deliver regulated qualifications. These courses feature a fixed syllabus, written and practical assessment and are regulated by internal and external observation.
Non-Regulated Courses – In terms of content and tailoring these are those courses previously delivered by Dimension and are monitored internally by Dimension staff, course participants via written evaluation and agents of the course organiser. The majority of Dimension’s clients have used us to provide courses in the past and are thus happy with the content and quality of the courses we deliver. The advantage of 'Non-Regulated' courses is that while a core syllabus is followed (Emergency First Aid at Work) additional content can be tailored to ensure that courses are fit for purpose and meet the specific needs of participants.
