Most workers feel that accidents are something that only happen to other people. The reality is that too many workers are coming to harm by not observing Health and Safety laws and not working to safe systems of work. This RoSPA and IIRSM approved Course covers a wide range of topics including fire safety, asbestos awareness, working at height, COSHH, PPE and electricity.
Working safely is in the interest and concern of all staff, both employers and employees.
Health and safety is one of the few areas where the law places specific duties specifically on employees so a knowledge of where this applies and how to ensure that it is adhered to is vital to protect individuals and businesses.
The Working Safely course covers a wide range of topics including fire safety, asbestos awareness, working at height, COSHH, PPE and electricity. It also covers methods for improving safety performance and methods of protecting the environment.
This course is a great induction course in relation to health and safety as it covers a wide range of topics in some detail. Most of the examples relate to the construction industry so this course is perfect for people starting out working on a site for the first time.
As this training covers a wide range of health and safety situations, the course provides a strong basis to further build on.
