Health and Safety Training

Health and Safety Training

Employers have a legal obligation to ensure that employees of all level are suitably trained in health and safety. This is to ensure that they have the correct systems in place to maintain a healthy and safe working environment.

Our courses will contribute to the promotion of a safety culture, making both employers and employees aware of their own responsibilities.

We offer taught qualification courses, and e-learning programmes which will give you a similar level of knowledge but not a formal qualification. See the E-learning page.

Qualification certificates are not legally required, but they may help with your due diligence defence. Achieving a Health and Safety qualification will help entry into employment, enhance promotion opportunities, and assist all business operators in proving that they have displayed diligence and are compliant with the law. Level 3 is suitable for managers and supervisors, whereas Level 2 is suitable for other food handlers and staff.

 

Which Health and Safety Levels?

Level 1 - ensures that employees from all sectors are equipped with a knowledge of basic safety at work to enable them to work safely and protect their health at work. Suitable for new employees or low risk activities. Not a prerequisite for Level 2 entry.
Level 2 – ensures that an employer is aware of the hazards and controls associated with the types of work they undertake. Level 1 not required as prerequisite. Not suitable for managers or supervisors.
Level 3 – ensures that supervisors and managers are aware of the legislation applicable to health and  safety and how  to communicate the required standards to employees.
