3B Training, a leading multi-accredited health and safety training company, has announced the acquisition of Blackburn-based Higher Safety Training Solutions Ltd for an undisclosed sum.

Wigan-based 3B Training has been established for over 11 years and provides training in health and safety, first aid, e-learning and NVQs to over 30,000 people a year in the housing, social housing, construction, civil engineering and utilities in the UK.

Its impressive industry accreditations include CITB, Highfield, IOSH, NEBOSH, UKATA, GQA, NPORS, CISRS and EUSR.

Dave Brooks, Executive Chairman of 3B Training Ltd said; “Acquiring Higher Safety & Training Solutions will allow 3B Training to offer additional services and training to our existing customers, as well as offering our own accredited training courses to customers of Higher Safety & Training Solutions Ltd.

“We have invested heavily in our team and our products over the past two years as we seek to build on our national reputation as a high quality and innovative training provider for the construction industry.

“We aim to be world-class in everything we do and adding this complementary business helps us achieve that.”

3B Training has grown considerably in recent years, which has seen it set up a recruitment campaign already this year. With the new acquisition expanding the growth of the business, 3B Training Ltd will continue its recruitment program with the aim of having over 100 employees in its organization over the next two years.

It also aims to double the volume of participants in its courses by 2024.

Higher Safety & Training Solutions work in similar sectors and provide consultancy and training services from their training location in Blackburn as well as at client offices and sites across the UK – accreditations include IPAF, PASMA, CABWI and Ladder Association, among others.

Ross Ciraolo, Founder and Managing Director of Higher Safety & Training Solutions Ltd said; “I am delighted to partner with 3B Training to bring the best health and safety training to the UK.

“Our services are second to none, allowing UK industries easy access to a wide selection of training courses tailored to their needs and requirements.

“Being part of the 3B family will provide an even wider range of services for our customers and new professional development opportunities for the team.”
