Accidents can occur in all kinds of working environments and many lead to injuries. It is very important for managers, and others responsible for safety in the work place, to understand how to recognise potential hazards and deal with them before they lead to accidents.
Preventing Accidents gives employees a good understanding of what hazards are and how to identify and control them. All businesses will benefit from managers who can anticipate accidents before they happen, safer staff and a better health and safety record.
Who is the course for?
Preventing Accidents is suitable for people who are likely to become first-time managers, or are already in the post but have had little or no formal training and limited work experience. It is particularly appropriate for anyone who is responsible for safety in the work place.
The easy to follow, step-by-step format of this course means people can work at their own pace. This course is appropriate to any business sector, there are no formal entry requirements and employees do not require any prior experience.
