A prelude and opening statements of the core subject material.

We clarify the three most important areas of a health and safety management system - so you can work-towards achieving or improve these three elements in your existing framework.

We identify the key area of health and safety legislation that everyone needs to know about, The Health & Safety at Work etc. Act 1974. We also explain Regulations, and how to use them in a way which supports your workplace, and allows you to comply with your Duty of Care.

You may not already know that health and safety training is just not just 'nice-to-have', but a legal requirement. Learn how every one at work must be provided with health and safety training relevant to their work.

A common myth about health and safety training is that it should be provided to new employees only - this module explains how training should be provided at regular intervals, and suggests how, and when, this kind of refresher training might be achieved using eLearning and our Loyalty Renewals.

We explain who can write a Risk Assessment, what a Risk Assessment is, and what is meant by 'competent person'.

We describe why a Health & Safety Policy might be useful to you, your co-workers, and what you should expect from a policy. We also walk you though on the common pitfalls of policies, and highlight other business considerations such as the Health & safety Law Poster, the Accident Book and Consultation.

A positive health and safety culture is crucial to any successful business, but what does that really mean, and how do you get it? We explain the key concepts and point you to useful resources.

It's easier to tackle health and safety when you can take the advice of the specialists, so here are our Top Three Tips on how to start the ball rolling, and make a difference.

Our aim is to make health and safety easier for you, safer for them, and so we point you in the right direction with where to go next.
