Service Description

Our Office Health and Safety course is suitable for anyone working in an office environment. In our course you will look at good health and safety management vs. poor health and safety management and the implications that employees and the business could have if good health and safety management is not enforced. You will learn that if a business has one or more employees, employers’ liability insurance is legally required under the Employers’ Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act 1969. You will also gain a greater understanding around the moral and financial reasons for managing health and safety and that ensuring the health, safety and welfare of employees is complied with, as this is a legal requirement under the health and safety law. The European Union (EU) has had a major influence on health and safety legislation in the United Kingdom (UK). As a previous member state, the UK has been required to adopt and introduce numerous directives and regulations, the legislation currently remains unchanged even though the UK has left the EU. In our Office Health and Safety course you will acknowledge the statistics around slips, trips and falls which will highlight the seriousness to why health and safety should be in place. You will learn that electrical hazards in the office can be prevented by maintaining equipment regularly. Fixed electrical installation should be correctly selected, installed, used and maintained to prevent, fault, defectiveness or damages. At the end of our Office Health and Safety course, you will learn that there can be multiple demands and pressures in work and that if it is too much a person may find that they cannot cope and therefor become stressed. There is a legal requirement to provide suitable and sufficient welfare facilities under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 and the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992. If welfare facilities are not sufficient, it can result in physical and psychological illness. It can also cause low morale and low productivity if employees feel that the employer is not bothered about their welfare.
