The course will familiarise you with the importance of health and safety, what your and employer’s duties are, the risks that you may face, and the arrangements and procedures your employer should have in place. With this requisite knowledge, you will be fully prepared to recognise hazards and risks and do all you can to uphold health and safety control measures and guarantee your and everyone else’s wellbeing.
