This course is for anyone who works in a workshop and will give them an overview about working safely, looking at why accidents happen and how they can be prevented.

Workshop safety training is vital to ensuring that your staff follow best practices and remain safe in their workplace. No two workshops are the same, as each will have different hazards and machinery and so this course concentrates on general safety awareness, safe working habits and safe operating procedures.

The course covers specific hazards that may be found in a workshop, such as dangerous equipment and hazardous substances. For each type of hazard, it explains who needs to know about that particular type of hazard and what the dangers are.provided. 

However, in order to administer medication to residents in a care home you need fo

rmal training from an NHS practitioner, this course is not a substitute for this training.
