What is it?

This qualification is aimed at those who require a better understanding of health and safety within the workplace. The emphasis is on making the employee safe for themselves, safe for others and capable of identifying potential hazards.

Health and Safety takes as its starting point from the fact that most accidents are attributable to a lack of knowledge or carelessness and that the key to improvement is increased awareness on everybody's part.
