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 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.

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

Target Audience

This course is a great induction course in relation to health and safety as it covers a wide range of topics in some detail. Most of the examples relate to the construction industry so this course is perfect for people starting out working on a site for the first time.


Advantages

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.

ROSPA and IIRSM approval mean 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.


Further Progression

Other Health and Safety courses that cover specific aspects of the candidate’s role for example if they are likely to be required to work above the ground then Working at Height would be a useful follow-up. 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.
