Course Aims

This course covers general health and safety issues that apply to a wide range of types of businesses
and sectors, from office and retail environments to workshops and factories. The wide range of
topics covered makes this a great course to act as an introduction to health and safety in the
workplace that can then be built on with more detailed courses that cover specific hazards that
employees might come into contact with in specific workplaces. This makes it a useful part of the
induction process.

By the end of this course the candidate will have an understanding of health and safety legislation
and definitions of common terms associated with health and safety. This is followed up with some
statistics outlining the most common causes of accidents in the workplace.
They will also understand good practice in relation to electricity, display screen equipment and the
use of safe manual handling techniques. The course also introduces best practice associated with the
control of substances hazardous to health regulations, the importance of using appropriate PPE as
instructed and the most common procedures to follow in the event of a fire.

The course contains specific case studies that outline the seriousness of health and safety in the
workplace and potential consequences if there is a health and safety breach. Along with all this it
introduces the concept of risk assessment and concludes with the actions that should be taken in the
event of an emergency situation occurring.

Other health and Safety courses that cover specific aspects of the candidates role for example if they
work a lot with computers then the DSE Awareness course would be useful to them. If they are going
to be handling chemicals then the more detailed COSHH course would cover this more thoroughly,
and if they are going to be working alone at any point then the Introduction to Personal Safety for
Lone Workers course would be a great next step
