About the course

We’ve all heard the common statements used in other health and safety courses: “All injuries are preventable” or “safety is just common sense”. When you hear these statements you get the idea that working safely is easy or comes naturally to us. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, it’s often more convenient and more common to take risks than work safely. This course will help you understand why Health and Safety matters so much by exploring H&S legislation and discussing the consequences of getting it wrong.

  • Introduction; Definition of Health & Safety
