Working Safely

Cost: £35 per licence

Working safely is in the interest and concern of both employer and employee. Although most of the legal duties fall to the employer, Health and Safety law is one of the few pieces of legislation that places duties on the employee as well. There are three reasons for managing risk at work benefitting all concerned:

– moral; not causing harm to work colleagues
– legislative; the law requires it
– financial; all accidents bear a cost to both parties.

Workers have an expectation to go home at the end of the working day not having been injured by any workplace activity. Most workers feel that accidents only happen to other people. The reality is that too many workers are harmed by not observing Health and Safety laws or not working to safe systems of work.  Our working safely course, defines hazard and risk, identifies common hazards ,focussing on improving safety performance and protecting the environment.  Appropriate training can play a bit part in changing attitudes towards taking risks in the workplace.
