Health and safety awareness training is mandatory for staff at all levels of an organisation. This is the ideal course to satisfy that requirement – a stimulating ‘entry-level’ course explaining how Health and Safety should be managed in any working environment.

Our Workplace Health and Safety Awareness Training course provides the necessary Health and Safety Awareness training for anyone in a working environment. It also provides the essential foundation for those involved in or thinking of becoming middle management.


The course outlines the basics of Health and Safety Law and how organisations and individuals can become liable for Health and Safety offences. Roles and responsibilities for Health and Safety are discussed by reference to the key legislation and the trainer will explore with the delegates how these responsibilities are managed in practice in different types of organisation. The principles of Risk Assessment will be considered together with their practical implementation.
