Overview

Health and Safety Course

Endorsed Certificate of Achievement in Health and Safety Course Level 3. Study the most important aspects of health and safety in the workplace with this exclusive Level 3 Course from Oxford Home Study College. Ensure your organisation complies with government legislation and provides a safe working environment for each and every member of the workforce.

Every employer on a global basis is legally obliged to watch over the health and safety of its employees. Nevertheless, research would seem to suggest that workplace health and safety standards are still dangerously lacking. In the United Kingdom for example, an estimated 1.3 million working people suffer from a work-related illness. Millions of working days are lost every year due to work-related illness and workplace injuries, more than 70,000 injuries are reported annually and up to 150 workers die in workplace accidents and injuries every year. The unfortunate truth being that in almost every instance, workplace accidents, injuries and illnesses are entirely preventable. Nevertheless, workplace health and safety can only be truly maximised when each and every member of the workforce contributes equally to the cause.

This exclusive Workplace Health and Safety Course has been designed for anyone looking to become a more responsible member of the workforce. Every employee at every level should be aware of the most important workplace health and safety fundamentals, along with managers, team leaders, business owners and so on. From entry-level newcomers to the most experienced professionals, revisiting critical health and safety issues on a regular basis comes highly recommended.
