This programme is widely recognised as demonstrating the required Health & Safety knowledge for an individual to act as an organisation’s competent person.
As people become less willing to tolerate the harmful effects of work, and as employers are becoming increasingly aware of the need to tackle health and safety issues, the task of those responsible for managing health and safety in the workplace becomes both more complex and more crucial. This nationally accredited qualification offers an in depth appreciation across a broad spectrum of Health & Safety issues.
It is designed to help those with health and safety responsibilities to be able to discharge more effectively their organisational duties and functions
