Health and Safety in the Workplace Level 2 – 1 Day

November 4 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Is Your Workplace Safe?

Did you know that 30.7 million working
days were lost due to work-related illnesses
and workplace injury in 2017/18?

It is an employer’s duty to protect the health, safety
and welfare of their employees and other people
who might be affected by their business. This
includes providing sufficient information, instruction
and training to employees to allow them to work in
a way that does not put themselves or others at risk.
The QA Level 2 Award in Health and Safety in the
Workplace (RQF) is ideal for all employees, as it
helps candidates develop a greater understanding
of health and safety issues and the role that
everyone plays in maintaining a safe working
environment. What’s more, with subjects covered in
just 1 day, this regulated and nationally recognised
qualification is the ideal way for organisations
to improve health and safety awareness, whilst
minimising disruption to everyday business
operations!
