A health and safety training provider and consultancy has expanded its international footprint by launching in the Middle East.
Cannock-based Phoenix Health and Safety already operates in the UK and South Africa, training an average of more than 10,000 students a year.
But now the company, which was founded in 2005, has launched Phoenix UAE to offer a range of internationally-recognised qualifications – including NEBOSH and IOSH – particularly to the construction and oil and gas sectors.
The move has seen a number of new appointments made at the business, including new head of revenue Chris Winstanley, Sophie Fraser-Miller who has joined as senior account manager and Richard Bath who is the head of operations.
CEO of Phoenix Health and Safety, Nick Higginson, said: “We see our launch in the Middle East and North Africa region as a significant opportunity to provide IOSH and NEBOSH training to a wide range of new businesses, especially in the construction and oil and gas sectors.
“The shift to virtual classroom courses during the coronavirus pandemic, and the similar time zones of the regions we now operate in, allows us to offer this popular training format across multiple countries.”
Phoenix markets itself as one of the leading providers of health and safety training and consultancy in the UK and south Africa, offering classroom, e-learning and in-house training to individuals and businesses across every sector.
Phoenix UAE will offer a suite of qualifications in the Middle East, covering all the core areas where there is demand in the region.
