Course Description

Aim

This course has been designed on a modular basis, (each module being approximately 90 minutes’ duration minimum), and is aimed at the general workforce. Module one is the exception to the rule and is approximately three hours’ duration. It is an introductory core module taken by all participants. It covers general principles of accident prevention, health and safety law, communication skills, and an overview of the common hazards likely to be encountered in most workplaces. Other modules are agreed with the client and cover specific hazards in detail, and the precautions to be taken with the relevant legislation. A minimum two modules are selected as required.
