Safety Leadership

Understanding your Health and Safety Responsibilities (SFL04)


Description
Everyone, wherever they are in the world, has the right to work in a safe environment. And the health and well-being of staff while they’re at work needs to be a priority for all employers and employees. But unfortunately, over 2 million people die every year from work-related accidents or illnesses. And even more are seriously injured.

You have a duty of care to make sure all employees are safe from harm while they’re at work. Understanding your responsibilities toward the people you employ or manage will allow you to ensure nobody gets hurt. Ensuring staff are safe also has benefits for the organization, as safer working environments improve overall staff productivity and reduce the number of absences.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Recognize the importance of embedding a health and safety culture within your workforce, wherever your staff are based
• Explain why dedicated health and safety policies and procedures need to be in place
• Demonstrate how to use risk assessments to keep employees safe from harm

Why take this course?

Different countries have different health and safety laws and requirements that need to be followed. This course will help anyone who oversees or leads staff to understand how to keep them safe from harm, in addition to following the relevant localized legislation.
