Is this the course for you?

The Level 1 Award in Principles of Health and Safety in the Workplace is designed to raise awareness of health and safety, and is applicable to everyone; but is particularly useful in preparation for entering the construction industry, or any work environment where health and safety procedures are of high importance.

It’s essential that everyone is aware of their own safety, and the safety of colleagues, customers, contractors, and members of the public who might be affected by their actions. This course will teach you how to recognise, avoid and manage hazards and risks at work.

You’ll gain an understanding of a number of key topics, including the importance of health and safety in the workplace, hazards and risks, workplace conditions that can affect health and safety, and the requirements for workplace procedures.

As this is a part-time course, it’s also perfectly suited for those of you with existing work, study, and home-life commitments.
