Description

Who should take this health and safety course?
One of the most essential steps that employers can take towards creating a safe environment is to ensure that all new employees receive suitable health and safety induction training. This should cover basic safety principles and the organisation’s health and safety arrangements – such as first aid facilities, fire precautions and evacuation procedures.

In providing workers with information and training on health and safety at work, employers can help to ensure that everyone has the necessary skills and knowledge to carry out their work safely and therefore help to manage risks effectively in the workplace.

However it is not just employees who need to receive health and safety training. Managers and supervisors also play a key role in ensuring a safe working environment and need to be given adequate training to enable them to manage health and safety effectively. Managerial and supervisory staff need to be aware of relevant health and safety legislation and must be able to check that any control measures in the workplace are effectively reducing the risks.

Course content:

  • The roles and responsibilities for health, safety and welfare in the workplace.
  • Identify both employer and employee duties relating to health, safety & welfare at work.
  • The different ways in which health and safety information can be communicated.
  • The consequences for non-compliance with health & safety legislation.
  • An understanding on how risk assessments contribute to health and safety.
  • The role a risk assessment plays in reducing accidents and ill health at work.
  • The definition of the terms hazard and risk.
  • Identify and control risks from common workplace hazards.
  • Common hazards found in a range of workplaces.

  • Know the procedures for responding to accidents & incidents in the work place.
