All employees should understand the importance of working safely and this course explains what they need to know - in a refreshing and informal way.

The course won't turn delegates into safety experts but it will focus their mind on why health and safety is so important, and explain how individuals can make a real difference to the health, safety and wellbeing of themselves and others through changing their behaviour at work.

Employer benefits

  • Nationally recognised and respected certificated training for their teams

  • Peace of mind offered by training that is designed and quality controlled by the chartered body and health and safety

  • Minimum disruption to working days and shifts - the one day programme includes the assessment so there's no need to free up further time for a test after the course

  • The course meets the government's guidelines for introductory health and safety training and is a 100 percent match to the HSE's 'passport' syllabus

  • Two key areas - health and safety and environmental basics - are covered in the single self contained session

The course covers five modules:

1. Introducing working safely - this module debunks the myth that 'accidents only happen to other people' by stressing the realities of the human suffering behind the statistics and emphasises the importance of personal responsibility.

2. Defining hazard and risk - this module puts 'hazard' and 'risk' into everyday language and uses familiar examples to show what could happen in a workplace. Importantly, it makes clear that even things that are very simple or repeated over and over again can go wrong - and with serious consequences.

Focusing on the six broad hazard groups, delegates are asked to think about the hazards and risks they come across in their own workplace. Risk assessment is also demystified as delegates will learn that everyone carries out informal assessments all the time.

3. Identifying common hazards - all the main issues are covered in this module - entrances and exits; work traffic; fire; chemicals; electricity; physical and verbal abuse; bullying; stress; noise and the working environment; slips, trips and falls; and manual handling. Each area is backed by crystal clear examples and recognisable scenarios, and useful summaries reinforce the key learning points.

4. Improving safety performance - this module deals with systems and processes, making sure any jargon is explained in easily understood terms. The session bridges the gap between management and workforce, encouraging delegates to play a part in processes that are commonly seen as down to their manager or supervisor.

Other areas - including contract work, inspections, safe systems and permits, protective equipment, signage, emergency procedures, reporting and health checks - are all focused on from the delegate's point of view.

5. Protecting our environment - a short but effective introduction to waste and pollution leads into a look at how organisations and individual team members can get involved in reducing environmental impacts. Memorable and thought provoking facts and figures help drive the points home

This course does not have set dates but can be booked on request. Please email michellenicholls@mohs.co.uk for more information.
