Workers in all workplaces and industries are required to take health and safety training to ensure that they keep themselves, and those they work with, safe.
This course is designed for workers of all abilities and in all environments, including those who work in construction, education, offices, and hospitality. It covers the common health and safety risks that are present in all of these environments.
If you work in a low-risk environment and have never undertaken health and safety training before, then the Level 1 Health and Safety in the Workplace course course provides an induction that may be more suitable for your needs.
Under Section 2 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, employers have a duty to provide training for their employees to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, their health and safety at work.
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 identify situations where health and safety training is particularly important, including:
The Health and Safety (Training for Employment) Regulations 1990 also state that learners doing work experience must be covered by health and safety law and so will also require training.
This online health and safety course ensures that you comply with these laws by providing an adequate level of information suitable for all employees.
On successful completion of the course you will be sent a quality assured certificate through the post the next working day. This can be used to provide evidence for compliance and audit.
