Level 1 Award in Health & Safety in the Workplace (RQF)


Did you know that 30.4 million working days were lost due to work-related illnesses and workplace injury in 2015/16?
It is an employer’s duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees and other people
who might be affected by their business. This includes providing sufficient information, instruction
and training to employees to allow them to work in a way that does not put themselves or others at risk.

to provide candidates with a basic introduction to workplace health and safety.
