Health and Safety Training for Managers | The UK is one of the safest places to work. As a result, 2018/2019 the fatality rate was 0.45 per 100,000 workers. While the global average was approximately 11 per 100,000 workers.
Despite this success, managing health and safety is not fashionable. Because over zealous interpretation of rules can be frustrating, expensive and inefficient. But it doesn’t have to be this way…
This course develops knowledge of how to control risks in your workplace, in an efficient and legally compliant way.
Provide a clear understanding of practical steps (not over the top) that will keep your employees and the public safe and healthy while at work.
On completion of the Health & Safety for Managers course you will know:
- The purpose of H&S management and its costs – both human and financial
- The UK and EU laws and obligations
- What the reasonable H&S policies & procedures are
- How to undertake a Risk Assessment
- How to continually monitor and improve systems
UNIT 1 | Health and Safety Management
We begin with outlining what health and safety (H&S) management is and why it is a good idea. Then outline the key elements of a successful H&S plan.
UNIT 2 | Risk Management
You need to control risks to staff and the public from your commercial activities. To achieve this you first need to understand the risks. So, in UNIT 2 we explain sensible risk management approaches, what hazards are and how they differ from risks. We also detail the risk assessment process and legislation.
UNIT 3 | Accident Prevention
Now we prompt thinking about the potential costs of accident. This helps you assign an appropriate level of resource to your H&S controls.
UNIT 4 | UK and European Law
Next, we outline the legal landscape for employees, managers and directors.
UNIT 5 | Monitoring & Review
Management of health and safety is an ongoing process that will require periodic refinement as your business evolves. So, in this section you will learn how efficiently monitor and review your procedures so ongoing improvement can be made.
Who is this course for?
The person responsible for health and safety in small businesses or low-risk environments.
Also, in larger businesses the course is helpful for all employees who have responsibility for managing others. This is because responsibility for safety is delegated down the line management chain. So, an awareness of a managers responsibilities is crucial.
