Working Safely

Working safely is in the interest and concern of all staff, both employers and employees. Health and safety is one of the few areas where the law places specific duties specifically on employees so a knowledge of where this applies and how to ensure that it is adhered to is vital to protect individuals and businesses.

Most workers feel that accidents are something that only happens to other people. The reality is that too many workers are coming to harm by not observing Health and Safety laws and not working to safe systems of work - the physical, mental and financial burden of these accidents can have a huge impact on themselves, their families and their colleagues.

The course covers a wide range of topics including fire safety, asbestos awareness, working at height, COSHH, PPE and electricity therefore, provides an excellent induction course to health and safety.

The course also covers methods for improving safety performance and methods of protecting the environment.
