Workplace Health and Safety
This course covers general health and safety issues that apply to a wide range of types of businesses and sectors, from office and retail environments to workshops and factories.
The wide range of topics covered makes this a great course to act as an introduction to health and safety in the workplace that can then be built on with more detailed courses that cover specific hazards that employees might come into contact with in specific workplaces.
This makes it a useful part of the induction process. By the end of this course the candidate will have an understanding of health and safety legislation and definitions of common terms associated with health and safety.
This is followed up with some statistics outlining the most common causes of accidents in the workplace.
They will also understand good practice in relation to electricity, display screen equipment and the use of safe manual handling techniques.
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.
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.
Who should take the course?
The course has a very wide audience as it applies to a wide range of sectors and can be included as part of the induction process in most businesses, especially when combined with other more specific health and safety courses that apply to the candidates role.
As this course covers a wide range of health and safety situations the course provides a strong basis to further build on with more training.
IIRSM approval means that this course meets the rigorous standards of this leading industry body.
Online training is flexible, efficient and cost effective meaning the candidate can progress through the modules at their own pace and in their own time, so they can fit the training in around their work and personal life.
Other health and Safety courses that cover specific aspects of the candidates role for example if they work a lot with computers then the DSE Awareness course would be useful to them.
If they are going to be handling chemicals then the more detailed COSHH course would cover this more thoroughly, and if they are going to be working alone at any point then the Introduction to Personal Safety for Lone Workers course would be a great next step.
