Successful candidates will be awarded a national Level 2 (Level 5 in Scotland) qualification which will provide an ideal platform to higher level training or career development.

A range of subjects are covered including:
• The roles and responsibilities for health, safety and welfare in the workplace.
• The value and process of risk assessments.
• The identification and control of workplace hazards.
• How to respond to workplace incidents and accidents
Assessment is on-going by the instructor, culminating with a multiple choice question paper. This qualification does not expire, but refresher training and keeping up to date with changes to policies and procedures is vital to keep the qualification current.
