Responsibility for health and safety in an organisation typically lies with appointed managers. However, there are issues around health and safety that anyone within your company needs to be aware of, from what the fire evacuation procedure is to lifting a box correctly.
This course looks at how to comply with health and safety regulations and also what every member of staff should be aware of from a day to day point of view.
