What's New!!!



All businesses have a legal requirement to ensure that staff are adequately trained as per the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, section 2 (2).

At Acacia Business Services Ltd we pride ourselves on providing cost effective, quality training for businesses both large and small and unlike many training companies we will train individuals as well as larger groups.

If you have a training requirement that is not shown, please contact us as we may still be able to help you by passing you onto one of our associates.

Manual Handling

More than a third of all over-three-day injuries reported each year to HSE and local authorities are caused by manual handling - the transporting or supporting of loads by hand or by bodily force.

The most recent survey of self-reported work-related illness estimated that in 2001/02, 1.1 million people in Great Britain suffered from musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) caused or made worse by their current or past work. An estimated 12.3 million working days were lost due to these work-related MSDs. On average each sufferer took about 20 days off in that 12-month period.

The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992, as amended in 2002 (‘the Regulations’) apply to a wide range of manual handling activities, including lifting, lowering, pushing, pulling or carrying. 

Our training gives useful practical advice on how to reduce the risk of injury from manual handling.

Confined Space Entry & Emergency Escape

A number of people are killed or seriously injured in confined spaces each year in the UK.

This happens in a wide range of industries, from those involving complex plant to simple storage vessels.

Those killed include not only people working in the confined space but those who try to rescue them without proper training and equipment.

Our training offers the delegate all the information required to ensure they work safely in a confined space.

Fire Safety Training

Under existing Fire Safety Legislation and the new Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2006 all staff should complete fire safety training.


Our courses are for all staff and will help employers fulfill their obligations.


We are pleased to offer the following courses:


Basic Fire Safety Training
