When partnered with our Hazard101 training module, this course helps maintain perspective when assessing hazards in the workplace to ensure that health and safety managers can focus their attention on the right details.
While your team may have dedicated H&S officers, maintaining safety is an organsiation wide commitment requiring all all levels of staff to be involved. This training module aims to give people the confidence to assess the risk of harm that their actions or hazards in the workplace pose for them or their workmates.
