Course outline

Working Safely is for people at any level, in any sector, who need a grounding in the essentials of health and safety. Everyone at work should have an understanding of why they must work safely and this course offers exactly that. Working Safely will not make you into a safety expert but will focus on why health and safety is important and how you can make a real difference to your own wellbeing and that of others through changing your and their behaviour.

Course details

  1. Introducing Working Safely
    It's not unusual for delegates coming on an introductory course to think that accidents only happen to other people. This module stresses the realities of the human suffering behind the statistics and emphasises the importance of personal responsibility.
  2. Defining hazard and risk
    This module puts hazard and risk into everyday language, and uses familiar examples to show what can happen. Importantly, it makes it clear that even something that is very simple or repeated over and over again can go wrong, with serious consequences. Focusing on the six broad hazard groups, delegates are asked to think about the hazards and risks they come across in their own work. Risk assessment is demystified and delegates learn that we all carry out informal assessments day in, day out.
  3. Identifying common hazards
    All the main issues are covered in this module; entrances and exits, work traffic, fire, chemicals, electricity, physical and verbal abuse, bullying, stress, noise and the working environment, slips, trips and falls, and manual handling. Each area is backed by crystal clear examples and recognisable scenarios, and useful summaries reinforce the key learning points.
  4. Improving safety performance
    This module deals with systems and processes, making sure that any jargon is explained in easily understood terms. The session bridges the gap between management and workforce, encouraging delegates to play a part in processes that are commonly seen as just down to their manager or supervisor. Other areas including contract work, inspections, safe systems and permits, protective equipment, signage, emergency procedures, reporting and health checks are all focused on from the delegate's point of view.
  5. Protecting our environment
    A short but effective introduction to waste and pollution leads into a look at how organisations and individual team members can get involved in reducing environmental impacts. Memorable and thought-provoking facts and figures help drive the points home.
