Health and Safety Training – Essentials Course Contents

1. Responsibilities and Legal Requirements of Health and Safety

 

This section looks at who is responsible for health and safety at work. It ensures that everyone is aware that they share the responsibility – they have a duty to themselves, to their colleagues and to their workplace.

It highlights the importance of training and communication.

 

2. Hazards and Risks in the Workplace

 

A hazard is something with the potential to cause harm and a risk is the likelihood of that harm happening. Here we look at what those risks might be in the workplace, we look at risk assessments and safe working.

Workplace safety signs are used to communicate important messages to instruct, advise and warn.

We look at fire action signs and we also include COSHH safety signs (which use the CLP pictograms from the GHS system of Classification and labelling of chemicals).
