Why Study Health and Safety Planning?

It is the responsibility of every employer to prioritise the health and safety of its workforce.  Unfortunately, it is estimated that in the UK alone, more than 70,000 injuries and 150 deaths occur in the workplace each year.  Safeguarding the workforce always begins with effective health and safety planning.  The development and implementation of a business-wide safety policy holds the key to protecting employees from harm.  Effective safety planning ensures that every manager, supervisor and worker understands their individual and collective responsibilities.  It outlines safe working practices, provides workers with the information they need to perform their duties safely and ensures everyone on-site knows what to do in an emergency situation.  Effective health and safety planning should therefore be the top priority for every responsible employer worldwide. 

By the end of this course the learner will be able to:

  • Understand the health and safety policy
  • How to control the risks
  • Identify the hazards
  • Consulting your employees
