Health and Safety Courses - Crucial Training

The essential knowledge gained on health and safety courses can be applied to all aspects of life. A solid understanding of risk-assessment, emergency situations, first aid, physical and emotional health - and more - is vital not just within the workplace, but in every situation and context. Health and safety regulations change regularly as more research findings emerge, so it's important to stay up to date by taking health and safety courses.

There are a number of different types of health and safety courses available, ranging from methods - Open, In-house or Online Study, to time periods which will suit your company: Short courses which can be completed within a couple of days, or longer courses which will be more in-depth. Health and safety courses are some of the most affordable training courses on offer. You can also select a course in an area that suits you - click here for London courses for example.

Training Course Content

Health and safety courses range from general training, to courses specific to an industry or role. Some of the key content in health and safety courses include:

  • Fire safety
  • First aid - Mandatory training and refresher courses
  • Food Safety and Hygiene
  • Health and Safety specific to industry, e.g.Oil & Gas, Construction, Social work

Health and Safety in the Workplace

For businesses in the UK, health and safety compliance is not only the law, but also imperative in keeping profitable. To be efficient, productive and successful in the marketplace, employees need to be happy, healthy and feel safe. 

All working environments are different, so health and safety priorities vary, however in most instances, considerations include noise, ventilation, lighting, temperature and stress levels to ensure a healthier and safer working environment for employees. Health and safety courses can help establish guidelines to be disseminated throughout a company.

Rules and Regulations

Keeping up-to-date with the legislation within your business area will ensure that you maintain a safe working environment and avoid accidents. In the United Kingdom, workplace safety and its management is largely regulated by governing bodies which set the standards and provide training in the relevant areas of workplace health and safety. The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) is the primary body which issues standard regulations which companies must adhere to in order to maintain an appropriate level of safety for their employees.

Other institutions such as IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Health), NEBOSH (National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) and City & Guilds then offer and issue a number of training programmes, qualifications and accreditations to companies and professionals seeking recognition of compliance.
