This is an excellent introduction to Health and Safety in the Workplace and will benefit all employees, particularly those who may be accepting a health and safety role, such as a safety representative within their organisation. Successful candidates will be awarded a national Level 2 (Level 5 in Scotland) qualification which will provide an ideal platform to higher level training or career development.
This is a one-day classroom based course. Dependant on the learner’s experience, there may well be some pre-course or post-course reading.
A range of subjects is covered including:
- The roles and responsibilities for health, safety and welfare in the workplace
- The value and process of risk assessments
- The identification and control of workplace hazards
- How to respond to workplace incidents and accidents
Assessment is on-going by the instructor, culminating with a multiple choice question paper.
This is a lifetime qualification, although refresher training is always recommended.
A maximum of 16 students can be accommodated on this course and all candidates must be a minimum of 16 years of age to qualify.
