This two course health and safety training package is perfect for new or existing staff to ensure workplace safety and compliance with the latest legislation and requirements. Our Awareness of Health and Safety at Work course covers why it is so important to follow the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and how to reduce the risk of accidents in the workplace. By completing the package learners will also understand how to carry out a risk assessment.
This suite of courses covers knowledge of keeping yourself and your colleagues safe in a variety of workplaces.
The very nature of current working society means that people are exposed to potential hazards constantly, regardless of their working environment. Whether you work in a corporate, industrial, or hospitality setting, health and safety applies universally, and there will always be a course relevant to your work.
Although not exclusive to organisations, employers who encourage their employees to undertake health and safety training will demonstrate good practice by ensuring that their employees are well equipped for all health and safety eventualities.
This suite would benefit anyone keen to be up-to-date with current health and safety, and completing any of the courses would be a safe assurance of their knowledge and ability. An official CPD certificate is available to print at the end of each course for personal and/or professional records.
This health and safety risk assessment training package is accredited by CPD and the certificates, awarded upon successful completion, can be used to log your hours against.
Each course should take approximately 1-2 hours.
These health and safety assessment courses are applicable to those in any work setting, including independent and lone workers.
There are no entry requirements for this course.
At the end of each course, there will be a test consisting of 15 multiple choice questions. Learners are required to achieve a 75% pass mark, and, if necessary, may attempt the test three times at no extra cost. If learners do not achieve the 75% pass mark, further attempts may be given by contacting our support team.
Learners will be able to download a digital certificate on completion.
