Health and Safety at Work

All organisations need to comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 (HSWA), which was introduced to maintain minimum health and safety standards for each workplace.

By law, an employer has a duty to look after the safety of their employees, customers, and anyone who enter their premises. Staff and customers will normally assume that they are safe in the establishment, and measures have to be in place to ensure a safe and compliant environment for all.

This course provides both employers and employees a general understanding of health and safety in the workplace, and a basic understanding of requirements and legal obligations.
