Why take this course?
Each year in the UK, thousands are having to take time off work due to health and safety-related issue. For most, this is a number of days.
However, in some cases people suffer major injuries or even death.
The vast majority of these incidents could have been avoided if standards of health and safety in the workplace had been better.
The government agency responsible for health and safety at work, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), publishes these accident figures every year.
