Health and safety in the workplace encompasses a wide range of duties and initiatives aimed at maintaining a safe working environment. Most accidents happen as a result of carelessness or a lack of knowledge and the key to improvement is increased awareness of Health and Safety on everybody's part.
TRN's Level 1 Award in Principles of Health and Safety in the Workplace course is designed to raise awareness of health and safety and is applicable to anyone entering a work environment. It is essential that everyone is aware of their own safety and the safety of customers, contractors and the public who might be affected by their actions. The qualification covers the importance of health and safety in the workplace, hazards and risks, workplace conditions that can affect health and safety and the requirements for workplace procedures.
