Course Content

Introducing Working Safely

“Accidents only happen to other people”. Unfortunately this is not the case and this module stresses the realities of human suffering behind the statistics and emphasises the importance of personal responsibility.

Defining Hazard and Risk

This module puts ‘hazard’ and risk’ into everyday language and uses familiar examples to show what can happen. It also makes it clear that even the most simple or repetitive tasks can go wrong with serious consequences.

Identifying Common Hazards

This module covers all the main issues, 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 handing.

Improving Safety Performance

This module deals with systems and processes, making sure that any jargon is explained in easily understood terms. This session bridges the gap between management and workforce, encouraging employees to play a part in processes that are commonly seen as just down to their manager or supervisor.

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.
