Looking at health and safety from a supervisory perspective

All businesses and organisations have a legal responsibility to ensure their employees safety whilst at work. This means taking all required measures to reduce or remove health and safety risks.

Whilst a company may have a health and safety policy, it will always need someone to implement it. Managers and supervisors therefore have a legal and moral responsibility to ensure all employees work in a safe, risk-free environment.

The best way to contribute to and even improve your company’s health and safety culture as a supervisor, as well as to meet your legal responsibilities, is to undergo health and safety training.

By attaining a more advanced qualification such as a CIEH Level 3 Award in Health and Safety in the Workplace, you will be able to handle all responsibilities in relation to health and safety no matter the size of the company or its main activity.

This Level 3, QCA-accredited, health and safety course covers the following topics over three days:

– The basic concept and principles of workplace health and safety
– Ill health and accidents in the workplace
– Organisation and management of health and safety
– How to supervise health and safety
