- Carrying out bulk, skills training in-house with the external trainers coming to us rather than sending staff away. We did a 2-week in-house road safety training scheme (Rospa) and it is estimated that £8000 was saved . We also ran a risk assessment course in house and saved around £4000.
- Developing skills inhouse rather than using external consultants. By example we have trained up our safety engineers to do safety audits (of new scheme designs). External consultants would charge around £2000 per audit, we now use internal staff at much lower cost.
Thanks to Suffolk County Council for these examples.
