Course Description

What’s It About?

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) estimates that workplace injuries cost the UK economy over £15 billion per year. Effective training can reduce the potential risk of harm occurring in the workplace and save you money!

Therefore, a thorough understanding of health and safety is essential in all workplaces, regardless of job role and industry. This Level 2 Health and Safety eLearning course ensures that employees understand the workplace’s most common health and safety risks. Above all, they will discover what control measures are needed to keep everyone safe.

Who’s It For?

This Level 2 Health and Safety eLearning course is suitable for anyone working in a medium risk work environment. It is designed for workers of all abilities and in all environments, including those who work in construction, education, offices, and hospitality. It covers the common health and safety risks present in all of these environments.

If you work in a low-risk environment and have never undertaken health and safety training before, then the Level 1 Health and Safety eLearning course provides an induction that may be more suitable for your needs.

If you are a manager or supervisor, the Level 3 Health and Safety eLearning course is recommended.

They will receive an electronic copy of your certificate immediately upon completion of the course. This certificate may be printed and used as evidence that you have been trained in health and safety to the appropriate level.
