Who’s this course for?

If you are in HR, or in charge of people as a manager, supervisor or team leader, this is the Health & Safety course for you. It will clarify your duties and give practical tools to implement Health & Safety in your workplace.

What’s included?

  • Framework requirements, including reporting compliance, and the duty of care for contractors and sub-contractors
  • Hazard and risk identification, methods of control, and monitoring and measuring workplace safety
  • How different roles contribute to safety and the influence of different management styles on safety culture and outcomes.

What you’ll learn:

Organisations have a legal duty to manage Health & Safety. Business leaders, owners, managers and supervisors all need to know how to keep people safe.

This one-day workshop will guide you through your legal obligations and introduce strategies to ensure your business is as healthy and as safe as possible. You’ll understand your legal duties under the Health and Safety at Work Act and learn the importance of understanding, promoting, and implementing effective Health & Safety practices.

After, you’ll be able to…

  • Play a valuable role in Health & Safety, including how you can contribute to improving the safety culture of the business
  • Understand the legislative framework including the various duties and responsibilities for officers, managers, supervisors and workers
  • Facilitate the identification, assessment, control and review of hazards and risks
  • Know if your hazards and risks are being managed effectively
  • Manage and support a worker and contractor engagement model.
