Health and safety at work awareness
It is imperative that all employers and employees can carry out their jobs safely and without the worry of having an accident. This course covers a range of hazardous situations, giving businesses confidence that their health and safety obligations are being met.
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, employers are required to ensure that workers are given the right information to help them minimise the risk of accident and injury at work.
This course is aimed at anyone who requires basic knowledge of safety in the workplace and covers a range of scenarios that relate to a number of different sectors.
You’ll be guided through the principles of basic health and safety and given practical advice on preventing and reporting accidents as well as relaying health and safety guidance to your staff and co-workers.
Impartial Examinations are undertaken under the control of UK Certification and this is separate from any Training Activity.
