Who should go on Working safely?
Working safely is for people at any level in any sector, needing a grounding in the essentials of health and safety. Everyoneat work should have an understanding of why they must andlsquo;work safely’ – and this course offers exactly that.

Course Syllabus

  1. Introducing working safely
    This module stresses the realities of the human suffering behind the statistics and emphasises the importance of personal responsibility.
  2. Defining hazard and risk

  3. Identifying common hazards
    All the main issues are covered in this module – entrances and exits, work traffic, fire, chemicals, electricity, physical and verbal abuse, bullying, stress, noise and the working environment, slips, trips and falls, and manual handling.
  4. Improving safety performance
    This module deals with systems and processes, making sure that any jargon is explained in easily understood terms.
  5. Protecting our environment

A short but effective introduction to waste and pollution leads into a look at how organisations and individual team members can get involved in reducing environmental impacts.
