Each year workplace injuries and ill health cost society an estimated £14 billion and in Gloucester work related ill heath and workplace injuries costs on average £31 million annually.
It is hoped these more flexible sessions will enable more businesses to attend.
Councillor Colin Organ, Cabinet member for Housing, Health and Leisure, Gloucester City Council said; "Businesses should take advantage of this drop-in session for both generic and specific advice regarding health and safety at work.
"We hope the session will prove successful and we will be able to roll something similar out to other trading estates in the City.
We know it can be difficult, especially for smaller businesses to attend more structured courses, as it means spending time away from the business for a length of time which is not always practical. It is hoped this flexible session will enable more people to benefit."
