NEBOSH – Health and Safety at Work Award is suitable for anyone who needs to understand the principles of international health and safety as part of their job.
The new qualification will benefit organisations who are seeking to implement a health and safety management system. It will ensure their workforce and in particular supervisory staff can apply the principles of risk assessment and control of common workplace hazards.
Upskilling your workforce in risk assessment can help reduce the number of accidents in the workplace, improving staff morale, and resulting in costs saving for the business.
