Alcohol At Work Awareness Certification

Not only does excessive drinking have a detrimental effect on an individual’s health, but it can also impair their performance at work. It is good practice to remain aware of the signs of alcohol abuse in employees and know in advance how to signpost them to appropriate help. You will learn what alcohol abuse and dependency are, and why employers need to be proactive when addressing this issue at work. The course contains guidance on how best to handle this issue in a sensitive manner.

Crowd Management Certificate

Crushing incidents, outbreaks of violence and riots are all possibilities that must be accounted for when planning large events. This course will teach you how and why accidents may occur at crowded events, and how you can prevent them. You will learn how to break your planning down into three phases that ensure your event goes smoothly. You will learn how to put in place contingency plans and how to handle an emergency.

Dangers of Sleep Deprivation Certificate

Sleep deprivation isn’t just a nuisance; it can have a negative impact on an individual’s work performance and relationships. In the worst case scenario, it can contribute to accidents in the workplace. This course will teach you about the causes and consequences of sleep deprivation. You will learn why some people are especially vulnerable to sleep deprivation and how they can improve their sleep patterns.

Dangers of Working at Night Certificate

People who work at night need to be mindful that this working pattern is accompanied by hazards not faced by those working during the day. These include sleep deprivation and damage to physical health. In this course, you will learn about the risks accompanying night work, the rules and regulations addressing night work in the UK, and how to reduce the risk of night working on an individual’s social life and emotional health.

Driver Safety Awareness Course

Most road accidents are preventable. This course addresses the causes of road traffic accidents and the importance of keeping your vehicle in a roadworthy condition. Specifically, you will learn the factors that increase your risk of dangerous driving, how to drive in adverse conditions, how to help those at the scene of an accident and how to drive abroad. This course will make you a safer, more confident driver who is alert to their own actions and those of other people.

Manual Handling Certificate

Most workers will have to engage in manual handling at some point during the course of their duties, even if the majority of their work is sedentary. Incorrect manual handling can cause injuries, some of which may be severe. In this course, you will learn how to fulfil your obligations as an employer or employee under the Manual Handling Operations Regulations. You will learn about the risks associated with improper manual handling and techniques you should use to reduce the risk of injury.

Preventing Slips & Trips in the Workplace Certificate

Injuries from slips, trips and falls are a key cause of absenteeism. Fortunately, ongoing risk assessment and workplace inspections can lower the chances of an incident. This course will alert you to common trip hazards in the workplace. You will learn how to adopt preventative measures, such as aiding your staff in the selection of appropriate footwear and how to make suitable adjustments to your workplace.

Speeding on Site Awareness Certificate

Every year, dozens of people are injured – and several killed – as a result of accidents on construction sites. Construction is one of the most dangerous industries, and health and safety needs to remain a top priority for all those working on a site. This course addresses the problem of vehicle speed on construction sites and how it can be managed via appropriate site management. You will learn how to comply with health and safety laws governing construction sites and how to use traffic calming measures to improve site safety.

Working in Confined Spaces Certificate

Every year, dozens of UK workers die as a result of working in confined conditions. Most victims work in the construction industry. This course will show you how to assess and manage risks associated with this kind of work. You will learn about the hazards that make confined spaces dangerous, best practices you should follow when working in confined spaces and how to take a thorough risk assessment prior to beginning work. You will also learn how to comply with health and safety legislation when carrying out or overseeing this kind of work.
