Level 2 Award in Health & Safety

Health and safety made simple!


Overview

The Health and Safety at Work Act requires charities and community groups to protect the health and safety of their employees, service users, members of the public and volunteers.

Our Level 2 Award In Health and Safety takes you through the basic steps you need to follow to comply with the law - whether in an office, shop, hall or at an event. This course is suitable for employees, volunteers, committee members and trustees.

You will learn to identify hazards to yourself and your colleagues and recognise how your own actions can reduce risks and prevent accidents.


We'll cover:

  • legislation
  • health
  • safety
  • welfare
  • the workplace and workplace equipment
  • risk assessment
  • manual handling
  • hazardous substances
  • ergonomics and workstation design
  • transport and vehicles
  • noise and vibration


Benefits to you

You will leave with a thorough understanding of health and safety principles and their legal framework. You will also develop a positive and proportionate approach to health and safety that will be useful in a range of working environments.

How will I be assessed?

At the end of the day you'll take a multiple choice exam- you will need to bring some photo ID with you. Upon passing, you will receive a Level 2 Award for Health and Safety certificate (Qualsafe award).
