Course Description

The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 (the 2005 Act) requires all duty holders to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the safety, health and welfare of workers and members of the public and to manage and conduct all work activities in such a way as to ensure their safety, health and welfare. This requires all who have this legal responsibility to be proactive in managing their safety, health and welfare responsibilities and deal with them in a systematic way. This course will help organisations to improve their safety and health performance by providing advice on how safety and health should be managed, and how to comply with their legal requirements.

This course would be useful to anyone and everyone who is required to write reports, or who want a highly useful refresher to improve their reports.
