Course Description

Course Code : HSAF0290

Safety awareness is an essential part of a companies’ health and safety performance. All employees need to demonstrate competency in carrying out their jobs in a safe manner and without risks to their health and safety or that of their fellow workers. Safety awareness is like almost everything else we do, it’s learned, not instinctive. We aren’t born with awareness for safety concerns, in fact everyone who has a young toddler or grandchild knows this first hand as they see them going around doing unsafe things constantly.
