The importance of fire safety in the workplace is underpinned by health and safety legislation that places a duty on employers to establish policies and procedures and ensure their employees receive appropriate training. Topics covered; The hazards and risks associated with fire in the workplace, How fire risk is controlled in the workplace, The role of the nominated fire warden, The principles and practice of fire safety management at work.

Manual Handling (Level 2)

A 6 hour course providing an ideal approach to safer and more effective manual handling – not only meeting HSE recommendations but also promoting good and safe practices in any situation. At times we are all exposed to some form of manual handling such as lifting, carrying, pulling and pushing actions that can be compounded by simultaneous movements such as climbing or pivoting. Personal injuries resulting from incorrect manual handling in the workplace accounts for over one million working days lost per year, as well as the pain and suffering experienced by the casualties. Correct manual handling techniques can make a huge difference. The risks arising from manual handling have been recognised by the Health and Safety Executive for many years. Their Regulations require employers to provide their employees with information and training on manual handling injury risks and prevention. Topics covered; Understand the reasons for safe manual handling, Understand how manual handling risk assessments contribute to improving health and safety, Understand the principles, types of equipment and testing requirements associated with manual handling safety, Be able to apply safe manual handling principles.
