Overview

This course provides delegates with a thorough awareness of health & safety and how this interconnects with the day-to-day activities in the workplace. The course will start by looking back to a time without health and safety moving through to the current challenges we face today. The trainer will set out clearly the legal responsibilities of all parties and explore through discussion with delegates the practical application of these.

The course will explore the common hazards found in the workplace across many sectors. We look at how risk controls can be used to eliminate, reduce, prevent or minimise risk. We will also explain how health & safety controls need to be integrated into an organisation’s core management processes for them to be effective.

History is littered with incidents, through case studies and interactive sessions we will give delegates an understanding of the past with an aim of them preventing injury and ill health in the future.
