Working Safely” is a comprehensive course designed to equip individuals with essential knowledge and skills to ensure a safe and healthy work environment. Covering fundamental principles of workplace safety, risk assessment, hazard identification, and emergency procedures, this course emphasizes proactive measures to prevent accidents and injuries. Participants will learn practical strategies to maintain personal safety, protect colleagues, and adhere to regulatory standards. Through engaging presentations, interactive exercises, and real-world case studies, this course empowers workers across various industries to prioritise safety, reduce workplace risks, and foster a culture of well-being.

Working safely is in the interest and concern of all staff, both employers and employees. Health and
safety is one of the few areas where the law places specific duties specifically on employees so a
knowledge of where this applies and how to ensure that it is adhered to is vital to protect individuals
and businesses.

Most workers feel that accidents are something that only happens to other people. The reality is
that too many workers are coming to harm by not observing Health and Safety laws and not working
to safe systems of work – the physical, mental and financial burden of these accidents can have a
huge impact on themselves, their families and their colleagues.

The course covers a wide range of topics including fire safety, asbestos awareness, working at
height, COSHH, PPE and electricity.

It also covers methods for improving safety performance and methods of protecting the
environment.
