Course Summary

Health and safety is an integral and important part of any organisation - whether you work as an operations manager, office manager, engineer or technician, you will be involved with ensuring a safe working environment for everyone. We will develop your knowledge of how different organisations use varying levels of safety procedures and you will assess their impact on the whole company. By investigating an organisation as a whole, you'll gain a broad knowledge of other departments such as marketing, sales and human resources, and how they are affected by the procedures and processes you implement. You'll also enhance your understanding of the technical and human aspects of health and safety, such as identifying whether issues were caused by machine malfunctions or misjudgement by humans.

You will have the extensive health and safety grounding required for industries such as the public sector, healthcare, transport and logistics. You will also enhance your knowledge of the latest health and safety practices in your current job, be able to identify the risks that come with particular job roles, create health and safety training programmes and put safety measures in place for a host of companies and industries at home and abroad. Job titles will include: Health and Safety Manager; Facilities Manager and Risk Manager.
