Description

Whilst the office environment may appear to be one of the safest places to work, statistics show that many, often avoidable, accidents occur in offices and call centres every day. These accidents are often the result of people’s lack of awareness of basic safety principles, something that could be prevented through the provision of regular safety awareness training.

This course has been developed to help employees to understand what there role and responsibilities are with regards to the management of health and safety in the workplace. All employees have responsibilities to take care of their own health and safety and to protect the safety of those around them.  Employees also have to cooperate with the employer on all aspects of health and safety.  Similarly, employers also have specific responsibilities towards employees, such as providing safe systems of work, safety training, information and protective equipment. This course considers the key hazards and risks within a typical modern office environment.  Attention is given to the most common safety issues such as slips and trips; fire safety; Display Screen Equipment (DSE) and manual handling. By employers requiring their staff to complete this online training course, it will help employers to comply with their health and safety obligations; provide a safer working environment for all office staff and make staff aware of their own responsibilities and duties with regards to health and safety in the workplace.
