Course Summary

Course Details

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. It also offers you the chance to look at past and present case studies to understand any errors made, what caused the mistakes and the preventative measures that should be put in place. These could range from dealing with harmful substances within a chemical facility, exposed wires and trip hazards in a busy office, to safety measures for maintenance work on rail tracks.
