Health and safety is about preventing people from being harmed by
work or becoming ill through work. This is so important that the
law says we must not put ourselves, other workers or the public in
Health and safety law applies to all businesses however small. It
covers employees, full - or part-time, temporary or permanent; the
self-employed; young people doing work experience; apprentices; charity
workers; mobile workers and homeworkers. If you hire temps or casuals
from agencies you have responsibilities too.
Controlling danger at work is no different from any other task – you
need to recognise problems, know enough about them, decide what to
do and act on the solutions. So you will be managing health and safety.
It’s not just highly unusual or exceptional circumstances
that cause accidents or ill health. Some basic thinking and acting
beforehand could usually prevent them. Find out how to deal with
particular hazards or problems in your workplace.
We can also carry out a Health and Safety Risk Assessment, and asssit you to write
your Health and Safety Policy. For more information on this please
* All learners attending OfQual courses need to bring Personal photographic identification to the assessment to be checked by the trainer (passport, Drivers License, Personal work ID Badge) without this identification you will not be able to sit the examination.
