  • Manage health and safety more effectively.
  • Deal with challenging people.
  • Develop creative and pragmatic solutions to a wide variety of health and safety risks

This evening course covers the main legal requirements for health and safety in the UK.  It also deals with a wide range of workplace hazards and how these can be controlled. The course is highly beneficial to non-health and safety professionals, such as managers in Production, Engineering, Operations, Facilities and other Operational roles who have a significant involvement in hands-on management of health and safety risks. The course is also popular with Safety Representatives, both Trade Union or non-affiliated.

The evening format of the course is perfect for those who:

  • Can’t afford to take 10 to 12 days off work to study during the day.
  • Can’t get their employer to release them during the day to attend the course.
  • Don’t want to use up half of their annual leave entitlement to study a course!
