About SOS Training

SOS – your ‘One Stop Shop’ for all your Health & Safety Training & Consultancy requirements - At SOS we believe in making training both educational and enjoyable and therefore have focussed on creating a relaxed, friendly and yet focused environment, with a tutor that understands the Health & Safety requirements of your sector.



SOS is a small and extremely focussed independent training provider. Whether you’re looking for training for your company or yourself we have a course to accommodate your needs to deliver the required training in a cost effect way.

We appreciate the diversity of all of our learners and are able to support those who need a little extra help to achieve their goals. Quality is the key to all our training services, with course assessment and exam results, completion rates and customer satisfaction at the heart of our quality management system.

Our flexibility allows us to offer training courses based from either our converted offices, situated in rural surroundings only a few minutes from junction 29 of the M25, or alternatively we can deliver direct from your own offices should you prefer to negate the need for your employees to travel.

SOS is also happy to go one step further than our larger competitors and offers a fully bespoke training development service that allows us to create training courses that meet your specific business goals or contract objectives.



SOS training is managed and led by Lorraine Larman our IOSH Chartered Safety and Health Practitioner. Lorraine personally oversees all training enquiries and activity within SOS ensuring that all our clients receive that unique 1 to 1 service only a truly focussed independent with dedicated resource can offer.

Lorraine has always had a natural gift for training, mentoring, coaching people and therefore it has been a natural progression to turn this passion into a career.

Health and Safety and the Environment are Lorraine’s specialty and currently reside’s on the Cleaning Industry Liaising Forum, a committee set up by the Health and Safety Executive to oversee health and safety in the cleaning industry. In addition Lorraine organises SHADs (Safety and Health Awareness Days) with the HSE to spread the word.

Having worked in the service industry, across many sectors, Lorraine has a broad portfolio of experiences including overseeing companies in achieving accreditations in ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, Investors In People, and other safety accreditations.

Lorraine is committed to the ethos of Health and Safety and the benefits of training and developing staff at the right level, at an affordable cost, delivered in a way that is easily understood.

SOS was built on the inspiration of Bob Vincent, an entrepreneur within the FM market who was looking for ways to improve the Health & Safety knowledge across the industry with specific focus on impacting on the number of incidents that occur within FM service providers.

Bob has been in the cleaning industry all his working life. His career commenced as a window cleaner and he soon set up his own one man small business and then grew this from the ground up. After a long and fulfilling career, Bob is not content on standing still and as Chairman of an LCC Group he continues to grow and diversify his business without compromising its absolute integrity in ensuring it delivers a first class service provided by specialists in their particular field of expertise.

This is clearly demonstrated within SOS where Bob has ensured that the principle consultant is not only focussed and experienced but is also Chartered qualified.
