Health and Safety at Work


Workplace safety, as well as being governed by statute, is a moral obligation for all businesses to ensure that everyone who works for you can be sure they are coming to an environment that isn’t harmful and damaging. Our course helps you review common hazards and safety measures that will give you the tools to create policy that goes beyond minimum legal requirement and helps you anticipate hazards, prevent injury and attack and keep employees wellbeing at the centre of your business.

Note: This course does not replace advice and compliance planning you should make in order to meet your local and national legal requirements. You should always check directly with the government or other department for your legal requirements.

Prior knowledge

You don’t need any specific prior learning or training to take this course as it covers many areas of communication, whether you’re an experienced communicator or not. What you will need is a good level of English (B2) or more in order to fully understand the tuition and put this into practice.

As you develop your career, there will be a constant requirement to not only refresh and update existing technical learning but also to develop new skills and ways of thinking and behaving.

Technical Skills

Whether you’re in production, distribution, sales, finance, human resources or management your technical skills will always need to keep up with the latest developments in technology and change. The learning for this will generally come from your peers, industry trends and specialised training.

New skills

However, as you move up in seniority through an organisation or become and entrepreneur, you will be faced with learning a much wider array of skills. You will need to learn how to be a generalist but with the ability to look at the whole of a business and how it all interlocks.

People Skills

Most importantly, you will need to master your own behaviours and character and emotional intelligence in order to influence, inspire and bring people along with your vision.

Your career, personal and professional development should never stop, whether you are learning because of a company or professional body requirement or whether you are just wanting to grow.
