Managing Safely Course

Managers are required to have a deeper understanding of health and safety issues, systems and procedures to enable them to deal with health and safety for their teams. Depending on their role, managers may also be asked to conduct risk assessments and implement controls.

We also have a similar course for all employees entitled Working Safely.
