Overview:
This one-day course will help you identify the most significant health hazards in your workplace, and explore practical tools and techniques to design out hazards and reduce risk.

Why attend?
Reducing work-related ill health is now the first of five objectives the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have prioritised for the next decade. HSE inspectors will expect employers to be able to demonstrate how they identify and manage the hazards that cause work-related ill health.
The reasons for this emphasis are clear: while deaths and injuries at work show a downward trend, the scale of work-related ill health in Great Britain is significant. Work-related stress and musculoskeletal disorders are the most common causes of working days lost, but harm to workers lungs, skin and other organs are also avoidable through improved management.
The HSE have made it clear that employers have a legal duty to protect workers from health hazards, including stress at work. But how do you assess health risks you can’t see? How do you decide which controls will give you the biggest benefit in reducing work-related ill health, and demonstrate compliance?

Who should attend?
Managers with responsibility for safety and health in the workplace.
Safety professionals who need CPD on work-related ill health.
On completion of the course, attendees will:
Have an outline strategy for identifying the causes of work-related ill health in their workplace.
Be able to make a business case to their organisation to invest in reducing work-related ill health, including stress and anxiety.
Create a structure for a stress risk assessment.
List aspects of a physical task to consider when seeking to reduce MSD.
Be able to create a plan for assessing the risk of occupational lung diseases and other types of work-related ill health.
