About the Course

We all know the importance of health and safety in the workplace, but do you know the dos and don'ts of it? If not, then this course is for you. We will teach you about different regulations in health and safety, precautions to be taken by everyone while handling hazardous materials, risk assessment during work processes etc. This course covers what causes accidents in workplaces and PPE to be worn by employees when they are handling dangerous tools or machines.

The next step is planning, after which comes risk assessment. What happens if we don't plan a safe place for our employees? Do we have a plan for employee first aid kits? Is our company following RIDDOR regulations? Who else needs to follow these regulations besides us? And finally, who is responsible for enforcing these laws within your company? We're sure you'll have all these answers after taking this course.

Risk assessment is the basis of health and safety. Why? Because it allows you to identify and quantify the risks associated with each activity. Once you have identified all the risks, you can put proper controls to prevent accidents.

COSHH is an example of a risk assessment program. COSHH is the acronym for Control of Substances Hazardous to Health. It is a comprehensive regulatory system in the UK that sets out specific requirements for managing workplace hazardous substances.
