Every year, accidents at work cost the UK industry billions of pounds. The effects of the injuries sustained vary from needing an extended period of time off work, never being able to work again, to the injuries being fatal. The sad fact is, many of these accidents need not have happened.
Much of health and safety is common sense. If individuals are aware of potential hazards and adopt safe working practices, they can control the risks and reduce the number of accidents and injuries.
This Health and Safety in the Workplace Level 2 Course teaches you about the risks in work premises and what safety measures should be in place to control them. It will lead you through your employee and employer legal responsibilities, causes of accidents and injuries, prevention, what safety arrangements are necessary, and the importance of following emergency procedures complying with the law and reducing risks.
An awareness of safety in the workplace is crucial, not only for complying with the law but for keeping people safe. It’s everyone’s duty to help prevent accidents and injuries and to know how to work safely. The knowledge you gain from this course enables you to meet these requirements.
