The workplace health and safety training course is a practical guide designed to provide learners with the skills, knowledge and credentials to minimise the risks to safety at work, where staff are adequately trained and working in compliance with UK health and safety regulations.
This course includes a number of case studies and practical exercises, designed to equip you with real-world, practical skills and techniques that can be applied to a wide range of work settings.
