Study the most important aspects of Health and Social Care in the workplace with this exclusive Level 5 Course from CPD Courses. 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 Social Care of its employees. Nevertheless, research would seem to suggest that workplace Health and Social Care 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 Social Care can only be truly maximised when each and every member of the workforce contributes equally to the cause.

This exclusive Health and Social Care 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.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
