Course description

NEBOSH Safety Simplified

In just three days this new course, created by NEBOSH, will give you practical, real-life skills to manage and improve health and safety in any workplace. It’s relevant to any business, in any sector utilising real life case studies and cutting edge learning practices.

Learning is fun and engaging using high quality resources and the latest augmented reality technology.

Employers will see the benefits of the training in improved efficiencies, such as fewer days lost through illness and accidents.

Many organisations and individuals can feel daunted by their health and safety responsibilities because the human and financial costs of a failure can be immense. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Safety Simplified aims to demystify the practicalities of risk assessment and control, help organisations reduce accidents and work related ill-health, achieve greater employee engagement and improve productivity. The three-day introductory course uses real-life case studies and augmented reality to bring health and safety to life so learners can make a real difference in the workplace.

According to the Health and Safety Executive, workplace injuries and ill-health cost UK businesses over £15 billion per year.
