Any employer operating within the United Kingdom must have strict policies in place regarding who is responsible for workplace health and safety. An employer has a responsibility to uphold health and safety standards within the workplace and ensure the safety of their employees or anyone on their premises, such as temporary staff, clients and visitors. Statistics from the HSE show that within a one-year period, half a million UK workers developed musculoskeletal conditions as a result of their job, and 137 people died at work in a fatal accident. These statistics prove costly for businesses when 31.2 million days of work were lost due to workplace illness or injury.
The aim of this Health and Safety at Work Awareness training course is to greater increase your knowledge of health and safety hazards and laws, as well as the relevant legislation. The course introduces the online learner to crucial aspects of health and safety at the workplace.
