Managing Health and Safety
The Health and Safety at Work Act was passed in 1974, and has done much to reduce instances of people experiencing ill health through their work. Nevertheless, the number of problems with health and safety in the workplace are still astonishingly high, and a failure on the part of employers and/or employees to comply with health and safety requirements at work can have a deleterious impact on colleagues, customers, management, day-to-day work and the organisation as a whole.
This module is designed to give you an overview of management responsibilities with respect to health and safety laws and policies that might affect you and your team. We focus on an office environment.
Learning Outcomes for this module include:
Become aware of The HSE mandates that the responsibility for implementing good health and safety practice in each relevant workplace lies with managers and directors of that workplace.
Learners will be aware of the 5 steps to carrying out a risk assessment, how accidents should be reported, the impact of work related stress and the risk factors of this and common fire and escape hazards.
