Course Overview:

  • Introducing Working Safely - It is not unusual for delegates coming on an introductory course to think that accidents only happen to ‘other people’. This module stresses the realities of the human suffering behind the statistics and emphasises the importance of personal responsibility.
  • Defining Hazard and Risk - This module puts ‘hazard’ and ‘risk’ into everyday language, making it clear that even something that is very simple or repeated over and over again can go wrong, with serious consequences. Focusing on the six broad hazard groups, delegates are asked to think about the hazards and risks they come across in their own work. ‘Risk assessment’ is demystified – delegates learn that we all carry out informal assessments day in, day out.
  • Identifying Common Hazards - Aggression and violence, asbestos, bullying, chemicals and harmful substances, computer workstations, confined spaces, drugs and alcohol, fire, electricity, getting in and out, height, housekeeping, lighting, manual handling, noise, personal hygiene, plant and machinery, slips and trips, stress, temperature, vehicles and transport, and welfare facilities. Each area is backed by crystal-clear examples and recognisable scenarios, and useful summaries reinforce the key learning points.
  • Improving Safety Performance - Systems and processes. The session bridges the gap between management and workforce, encouraging delegates to play a part in processes that are commonly seen as just down to their manager or supervisor. Other areas – including contract work, inspections, safe systems and permits, protective equipment, signage, emergency procedures, reporting and health checks – are all focused on from the delegate’s point of view.
  • Question & Answer Session - Interactive games and quizzes to maximise participation. Delegates are evaluated using a multi-format question paper and a multi-choice hazard-spotting exercise.
