Health & Safety Training

Health and Safety Training

The courses detailed below are designed to meet the requirements of legislation, and exceed the requirements of the CIEH.  Successful candidates receive a nationally recognised certificate from the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health Officers.  A report will also be forwarded to employers where requested.

Good health and safety standards rely on employers and employees working together to reduce risks and prevent accidents and ill health arising from work activities.

Employers have a responsibility to provide safe and healthy workplace conditions as well as safe systems and methods for workplace activities.

The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health launched its Basic Health and Safety Certificate in 1987, and in 1998 the successful format was developed further to provide a more flexible training solution.

Basic Health and Safety aims to provide employees with health and safety understanding which will enable them to contribute to any health and safety management system.

 

The programme will enable you to:

  • Work in a safe and healthy manner and contribute to improving health and safety within an organisation’s policy.
  • Identify key hazards in their own workplace.
  • Understand the importance of health and safety rules and working procedures.
  • Report potential health and safety problems.
  • Be responsible for own actions.
