Level 1 Health and Safety
With the constant changes within Health and Safety legislation, it has never been more important to ensure compliance in this field. Contravening this legislation can result in prosecution, with the possibility of an unlimited fine or even imprisonment.
All employers are required to have the correct systems in place to ensure a healthy and safe working environment for employees and any other people who may be affected by their business activities. Through achievement of one of our health and safety qualifications, employees will develop the appropriate knowledge and attitude to contribute to an organisation’s continued compliance.
Our suite of Health and Safety qualifications have been created to assist businesses in complying with legal requirements by demonstrating that staff members have been trained in preventative approaches to hazards and in promoting a positive health and safety culture. They are also designed to ensure that all employees are aware of their own responsibilities and how they contribute to the effective maintenance of health and safety policies.
Level 1 Awards in Health and Safety
The HABC Level 1 Awards in Health and Safety have been developed to ensure that employees are equipped with a basic knowledge of health and safety in their workplace, including the duties under UK health and safety legislation.
These qualifications require no former knowledge of Health and Safety and are therefore ideal as part of a company health and safety induction programme, but it could also form part of ongoing refresher training designed to improve the health and safety culture in a workplace.
These qualifications suit a diverse group of individuals ranging from those working in large multinationals to those working in small businesses. Candidates can also use the qualification as part of relevant courses being taken in schools and colleges.
The current range of Level 1 Health and Safety qualifications available from HABC are as follows:
• HABC Level 1 Award in Principles of Health and Safety in the Workplace (RQF)
• Level 1 Award in Health and Safety for Catering
• Level 1 Award in Health and Safety for Retail
• Level 1 Award in Health and Safety for Carers
