Who Should Take this Course?
This Level 1 Health and Safety in the Workplace course is designed for employees of all levels and is particularly suited to new workers who are required to take health and safety induction training at the start of their employment.
The course will give you a basic understanding of general health and safety practices so that you can work together with your employer to ensure control measures effectively remove hazards and reduce risks to a minimum.
If you have already taken induction level training, and need to maintain or build on your existing knowledge, then it's recommended that you take the Level 2 Health and Safety in the Workplace course.
If you are an employer, manager or supervisor and you require an advanced level of training then it's recommended you take our Level 3 Health & Safety Training.
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.
All of our courses are accredited by the CPD Certification Service as conforming
to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines.
