The Workplace Health and Safety course is suitable for a wide audience of candidates. It applies to a wide range of workplace sectors and it is an ideal course to include as part of the induction process in most businesses, especially when combined with other more specific health and safety courses that are specific to the candidates role.
This course covers the common health and safety issues that apply to a large range of types of businesses and sectors. The wide range of topics covered makes this a great course to act as an introduction to health and safety in the workplace. This can be a useful part of a new employees induction process as it can then be built on with more detailed courses that cover specific hazards that employees might come into contact with in specific workplaces.
It is ideal for office and retail environments to workshops and factories. The course contains specific case studies that outline the seriousness of health and safety in the workplace and potential consequences if there is a health and safety breach. Along with all this it introduces the concept of risk assessment and concludes with the actions that should be taken in the event of an emergency situation occurring.
Candidates will also understand gain a good practice in relation to electricity, display screen equipment and the use of safe manual handling techniques in the workplace. The course also introduces best practice associated with the control of substances hazardous to health regulations, the importance of using appropriate PPE as instructed and the most common procedures to follow in the event of a fire.
By the end of this course the candidate will have gained an understanding of health and safety legislation and definitions of common terms associated with health and safety. This is then followed up with some statistics outlining the most common causes of accidents in the workplace.
