Course Body Title

Did you know that 27.3 million working
days were lost due to work-related
illnesses and workplace injury in 2014/15?

It is an employer’s duty to protect the health, safety
and welfare of their employees and other people
who might be affected by their business. This
includes providing sufficient information, instruction
and training to employees to allow them to work in
a way that does not put themselves or others at risk.

The QA Level 2 Award in Health and Safety in the
Workplace (QCF) is ideal for all employees, as it
helps candidates develop a greater understanding
of health and safety issues and the role that
everyone plays in maintaining a safe working
environment. What’s more, not only is this a
regulated and nationally recognised qualification,
it is also fully supported by Proskills, making it the
ideal health and safety course for organisations
throughout the UK.
