Health and Safety Induction

£12.00 £14.40 INC VAT

The Health and Safety Induction eLearning course introduces the importance of good health and safety practices in the workplace. The course introduces the responsibilities for employers and employees from the Health and Safety at Work Act.

 

Description

The course covers typical workplace hazards, such as manual handling, stress, hazardous substances and falls from height. The course looks at what to do if an accident or incident occurs, or if they experience any signs of ill-health. A case-study illustrates the importance of reporting. This course does not attempt to teach staff to carry out risk assessments, but it explains how they can contribute to, and make use of the findings of risk assessments. In particular, examples show how understanding a risk assessment can help you to work more safely.

Learners are reminded that they should take responsibility for the safety of themselves and others. This includes the need to comply with procedures, participate in training and to report accidents, incidents, ill-health or hazards.
