Course Description

Working Safely 1 day course Overview Traditional health & safety courses have tended to focus primarily on legislation and whilst knowledge of the legislation is important, the practical application of safety knowledge to achieve safe behaviour - on a day to day ?real world' basis - is far more so. As such, these courses - always tailored to specific work environments and conditions - deal with the essential parts of the law in so far as they are necessary to identify the employees' actions required for compliance. They concentrate much more on how to identify hazards and risks within the workplace and how to contribute to improving the organisation's overall safety performance. The course is externally accredited by the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health, the lead body for safety in Europe. This is a practical course with a number of exercises during the course as well as a final assessment.
