Bruce Durham

Northumberland action man Bruce Durham (pictured right) has moved his business “Premier Corporate Training” from Swindon back to his home town of Amble.

The company has now taken on three full time staff and staged a training day for 47 new tutors in Newcastle.

Premier Corporate Training carries out professional manual handling, first aid and fire awareness training to all types of businesses, large or small, as well as a range of accredited health and safety courses, team and confidence building and professional training courses.

The company employs qualified and experienced trainers from all over the UK and has trained hundreds of staff across the world from South Africa to the Philippines, working with international companies including Balfour Beatty, Shell, Ford and Amec.

A former RAF sergeant, Managing Director, Bruce Durham set up Premier Corporate Training eight years ago. “Many small companies don’t realise that no matter what type of industry you’re in, employers must provide Health and Safety training to every member of staff.” says Bruce. “For those who don’t know, or chose to ignore this, the price is high and companies can face ruin – particularly if an accident occurs.

“Just last month, a company went bankrupt after being fined £87,000 by the HSE for a manual handling injury to one of its employees. Specific training is particularly important in the construction and engineering industries because of the high level of risk involved. Premier Corporate Training in the North East can make sure all your staff are fully trained and can ensure your company is complying with all legal requirements, at a reasonable cost.”
