Do You Comply With the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974?
Under Section 2 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, employers have a duty to provide training for their employees to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, their health and safety at work.
The Health and Safety (Training for Employment) Regulations 1990 also state that learners doing work experience must be covered by health and safety law and so will also require training. This online health and safety course ensures that you comply with these laws by providing an adequate level of information suitable for all employees.
The Health and Safety Level 2 course is broken down into four easy to follow modules: –
Health and Safety at Work Legislation and Obligations – In this module we look at the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and how you can stay on the right side of the law. We also examine Risk Assessments and how they can be used to keep people in the workplace safe.
Accidents at Work – Here you will now learn about some of the more common accidents that take place in the workplace – such as slips, sprains and coming into contact with hazardous substances – and how they can be prevented.
Personal Protective Equipment and Dealing with Asbestos – This part of the course examines the various types of Personal Protective Equipment that can be utilised to keep employees safe. We’ll also look at the aches and pains associated with Display Screen Equipment before moving on to the various concerns surrounding Asbestos and employer obligations for dealing with it.
Fires, First Aid and General Health – In this module you’ll learn what to do in the event of a fire – and how to prevent it from occurring in the first place. We then move on to First Aid and how to deal with incidents before finishing off the course with a look at workplace stress and how to reduce it.
