This course is designed for Managers, Supervisors, Safety representatives, and individuals who have some responsibility for safety and health at work. This course is also designed for individuals who wish to gain knowledge in this area.
Occupational Health and Safety is a major concern to employers and employees across all industry sectors in small, medium and large organisations.
Preventable accidents, lost time and errors cost businesses both time and money not to mention the personal pain and suffering that many accidents at work bring to those affected. Businesses with a Strategic Occupational Health and Safety Plan show lower injury rates while they enjoy higher productivity and employee morale. Effective training and awareness is probably the most cost effective safety measure available to any company. Most workers and managers will be aware of and take action in the obvious areas, mostly in a reactive capacity. However, training sharpens the mind and increases the opportunity for a proactive systematic approach to managing workplace safety and health.
