Health and Safety Awareness

The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 requires you to provide whatever information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety at work of your employees. 

This is expanded by the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, which identify situations where health and safety training is particularly important, eg when people start work, on exposure to new or increased risks and where existing skills may have become rusty or need updating. 

Libben provides many Health & Safety Awareness short courses. These can be made bespoke to your organisation.

Courses can be delivered at your organisation or at one of our venues.

 

With Libben, course registration, books*, materials & refreshments* are all included in the price you pay!

*Please see our Terms & Conditions page for details

COURSE DATES

If two or more union-appointed health and safety representatives request in writing that you set up a health and safety committee, you must do so within three months of the request. Although there is no such requirement if you consult health and safety representatives elected by the workforce, it is good practice to set up a health and safety committee where:

  • you have several health and safety representatives elected by employees; or
  • you have to consult both union-appointed health and safety representatives and employee-elected representatives.

This training course helps health and safety representatives or representatives of employee health and safety ( for non-unionised organisations) understand their responsibilities.
