Workplace health and safety is all about sensibly managing risks to protect your workers and your business. Good health and safety management is characterized by strong leadership involving your managers, workers, suppliers, contractors, and customers. In a global context, health and safety is also an essential part of the movement towards sustainable development.

Fire is no joke, especially in the workplace. It’s so important to be able to identify different types of fire safety equipment, know where it is, and how to use it in case of emergency. And if that emergency did come to pass, you’d need to know how to escape safely. But prevention is always the best place to start. So, being able to reduce the risk of fire in your workspace by adjusting your behaviours to comply with fire safety legislation and regulations, and storing and using hazardous substances safely, is vital.
If you’ve ever hurt yourself lifting something, then you’ve, unfortunately, joined a not very exclusive club. Injuries when lifting or moving objects are commonplace in any industry as well as around the home.

But even relatively small injuries can mount up and lead to things that put you out of action for weeks, or worse.
Cartoons would have you believe that a slip or trip, with a comical sound effect, of course, is really funny. But actually they can be extremely serious.

This course provides guidance to employers on their responsibilities and on measures they can take to manage workplace temperature. If employees are exposed to unreasonable temperatures at work, the consequences to their well-being can be serious.
