Health and Safety Diploma
The Health and Safety Diploma provides a firm foundation to develop and implement strategies in health and safety in various industries so that there is minimum risk to yourself as well as to your co-workers. Every employer worldwide has the legal obligation of taking care of the health and maintaining the safety of their employees. In spite of such regulations, it is seen that there is a seriously lacking of standards of health and safety in the workplace. For e.g. in the United Kingdom, it is estimated that nearly 1.3 million employed people suffer from illnesses that are work-related. Every year, the number of working days that are lost due to work-related illnesses and injuries counts the millions. Each year, the injuries reported are more than 70,000 and around 150 workers lose their life due to accidents and injuries happening in workplaces. The regrettable fact is that almost every accident, injury or illness that happened at the workplace could have been prevented. The truth remains that for high standards of health and safety in the workplace to be maintained, each and every person employed has to be equally involved. Performance of managerial duties, stress management and effective implementation of safety measures are also covered by the Health and Safety Diploma Course. Legally, every employee in every industry is supposed to have a basic knowledge of health and safety to make sure that the risks in the workplace are recognised and handled in an effective manner. On completion of the Health and Safety Diploma, you will have attained a complete understanding of the health and safety issues present in workplaces and also learn the various strategies you can implement to prevent accidents and injuries at the workplace. The course also advises you on the apt course of action to be taken if an injury or accident ever happens at the workplace.
