Course description

Workplace Health and Safety


If you want to learn more about ensuring safety in the workplace, here’s a great course to get started on. Workplace Health and Safety focuses on how to care about your employees, ensure they are kept safely in the work environment, assess workplace risks and hazards, mitigate these risks and adhere to health and safety terms and legislation. Maintaining workplace health and safety will benefit the organisation as a whole, whether it’s operational cost, improved productivity and high job satisfaction. Key modules are explored in this course and focus on causes of workplace accidents, how to introduce good practices of safe handling techniques and the importance of implementing protocols in case of incidents. Workplace health and safety is not limited to one type of business or organisation, but as a whole, it is applicable to multiple sectors and industries.

Workplace Health and Safety contains a wealth of advice on understanding the effects of your beliefs, values and attitudes and how it can contribute to workplace safety. You will learn to recognise points of human error and understand the consequences you must face if there is a potential breach in health and safety. This is an IIRSM approved course which demonstrates to potential employers that you are continually developing yourself, and will make you a desirable candidate in leading sectors.
