The Health and Safety at Work Act requires charities and community groups to protect the health and safety of their employees, service users, members of the public and volunteers.
Our Level 2 Award In Health and Safety takes you through the basic steps you need to follow to comply with the law – whether in an office, shop, hall or at an event. This course is suitable for employees, volunteers, committee members and trustees. You will learn to identify hazards to yourself and your colleagues and recognise how your own actions can reduce risks and prevent accidents.
