This qualification is designed for those learners either currently working or those returning or starting work and wishing to gain a nationally recognised qualification in health and safety.
Under the Health & Safety at Work (etc.) Act 1974, employers are required to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of all employees, and visitors to site.
This qualification is designed to provide learners with knowledge of the basic health and safety practices essential in the workplace.
Manual Handling injuries are the cause of most lost working days in the UK, including sprains and strains due to the incorrect lifting and moving of loads.
The qualification provides learners with an understanding of the responsibilities of employers; the main causes and costs of work-related fatalities, injuries and ill-health.
There are two Fire Safety courses Level 1 and Level 2.
The level 1 is for all employees to have an understanding of fire awareness whereas the Level 2 qualification is those who wish to become fire marshals.
The Level 1 Award in Fire Safety Awareness is a qualification aimed at all staff, particularly new starters in any workplace, where a basic understanding of fire safety is required.
Whilst our health & safety courses can help you to meet legal requirements and prove competency / due diligence, these courses will also provide those who attend with the knowledge to help both themselves, and those around them, to stay safe within the workplace.
