Course Overview

Everyone in your workplace is legally required to have Health and Safety Training. Whether it’s used as an induction tool, refresher, or for people changing roles within your organisation, this course provides the perfect overview of the topic.

Our Health and Safety Training course provides a basic introduction to general Health & Safety at work. You can use the training to help your employees recognise and avoid risks at work, as well as how to minimise illness or workplace accidents.

The course looks at employee responsibilities, legal requirements, hazards, risks, and safety signs, throughout your working environment.

You’ll also benefit from an introduction to workplace emergency procedures such as fire evacuation and contacting the emergency services. Health & Safety Essentials briefly covers fire awareness; slips; trips, falls; manual handling; basic DSE; basic COSHH; and electrical safety.

Our courses can be completed all at once, or in bite size chunks depending on your personal preference. The system can be paused and revisited at a later time that suits your schedule.
