HEALTH AND SAFETY COURSES
Health and Safety in the workplace – Level 2 (RQF) Award (1 Day)
This is an excellent introduction to health and safety in the workplace and will benefit all employees, particularly those who may be accepting a health and safety role, such as a safety representative within their organisation. It ensures that delegates are complying with all relevant legislative guidance and covers essential areas of health and safety, including risk assessments, making certain that delegates are able to maintain a safe working environment.
In 2015-2016, 144 workers were killed in UK workplaces. In addition to the tragic loss of life and personal suffering, employers found themselves faced with court fines and costs, increased insurance premiums, compensation claims, reduced productivity, damaged reputation and low staff morale. This qualification will help avoid such consequences.
Successful candidates will be awarded a national Level 2 (Level 5 in Scotland) qualification which will provide an ideal platform to higher level training or career development.
Workplace Manual Handling Course (Principles and Practice) – Level 2 (RQF) Award (1 Day)
We are all exposed at times to some form of manual handling such as lifting, carrying, pulling and pushing actions that can be compounded by simultaneous movements such as climbing or pivoting. Personal injuries resulting from incorrect manual handling in the workplace accounts for over one million working days lost per year, as well as the pain and suffering experienced by the casualties. Correct manual handling techniques can make a huge difference.
The risks arising from manual handling have been recognised by the Health and Safety Executive for many years, as evidenced in their regulations and advisory activities promoting good practice.
The Regulations require employers to provide their employees with health and safety information and training – supplemented, as necessary, with more specific information and training on manual handling injury risks and prevention.
This course provides an ideal approach to safer and more effective manual handling – not only meeting HSE recommendations, but also promoting good and safe practices in any situation.
IOSH Working Safely – One Day Course
Our Working Safely course is recognised by CSCS as an equivalent to a Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment (face-to-face courses only). That means that delegates who successfully complete a classroom-based Working Safely can apply for a CSCS green Labourer card once they have also passed the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Operatives Test.
IOSH Working Safely course is for people at any level to gain an understanding of the essentials of health and safety. It focuses on why health and safety is important. It helps individuals understand how they can positively contribute to health and safety within their organisation. This course ensures that individuals understand their responsibilities clearly and fully. The course covers all the basics in a high impact interactive format.
This one-day course is for people at any level, in any sector, needing a grounding in the essentials of health and safety. Everyone at work should have an understanding of why they must ‘work safely’ and this course offers exactly that, in a refreshingly informal way.
CITB Health and Safety Awareness
This one-day course can be for those who have entered, or are about to enter, the construction and civil engineering industry. The course gives the delegates an awareness of health and safety and how it affects their daily role. Use this course as preparation for the CITB Health, Safety, and Environment test or as refresher training. This course is the first step towards CSCS Labourers Card (green card). This training is also a step towards the progressive CITB Site Safety Plus suite of courses. These range from training for operatives into the industry up to senior manager/director.
