When employees are fully aware of their workplace hazards, they can take measures to avoid them. This not only reduces the likelihood of accidents and injuries, but it also promotes a positive safety culture in the company. In addition, mandatory employee health and safety awareness training reduces the costs associated with lawsuits, as well as the negative effects on employee morale that could arise from a lack of proper education.
The course covers the main areas of health and safety including identifying hazards, understanding how fires occur and the responsibilities of both employers and employees. Moreover, the course gives an insight into COSHH and RIDDOR requirements along with other control measures that need to be in place.
It will help you understand the importance of reducing exposure to noise in the workplace and methods that can be used to minimise the risk.

The course concludes with a short quiz and an emailed certificate on successful completion. A QR code is provided with each completed course that can be scanned by a smartphone to establish the certificate’s validity instantly. The course is aimed at staff of all levels who work in an office type environment, and financial institutions such as banks and building societies. health and safety awareness course
