The healthcare health & safety course is aimed at anyone who requires a course in health and safety awareness. It is designed to meet the Health and Safety regulations and covers regulations, precautions, planning, risk assessing, PPE, individual sectors, what causes accidents, employer/employee responsibilities, RIDDOR, COSHH, first aid, workstation/VDU safety, working at heights, gas safety, occupational health, infection control, electricity, enforcement and the dangers and links in the regulations in fire and manual handling.

This course is designed to also meet the increasing need for healthcare workers to have a comprehensive mix of training courses so we have combined Health and Safety with other subjects in one course to make it easier and cheaper to get qualified.  The course covers more than just the usual health and safety subjects to give one course that meets multiple needs.  The training needs of the healthcare industry are ever expanding and you can add extra courses on to this course to meet your exact needs.
