Basic Health & Safety Awareness


This awareness course is aimed at anyone who requires a course in health and safety awareness. It is designed to meet the Health and Safety regulations and covers an awareness in Health & Safety.  Some industries and occupations only require a basic understanding of health & safety rules and practices or require staff to just complete an induction into health & safety. This basic course is ideal to meet this requirement.  The course covers the important points but does not go into the detail our level 1, 2 or 3 courses cover.

You can also complete our full level 1 or level 2 courses as online or classroom courses nationally.

  • Care sector

This course comes with 3.0 hours of CPD, although the time to complete the course online may be less than this.
