Who Should Take this Online Level 3 Health and Safety in the Workplace Training Course?

This Level 3 Health and Safety course is suitable for all supervisors and managers who have a responsibility for providing high health and safety standards in the workplace. This includes those who have a responsibility for training employees, maintaining standards and enforcing a positive health and safety culture at work.

Do You Comply With the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974?

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:

  • Training for new recruits.
  • Training for when people change jobs or take on extra responsibilities.
  • Training for young, more vulnerable employees.
  • Refresher training where existing skills need updating.

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 induction course ensures that you comply with these laws by providing an adequate level of information suitable for all employees.'
