This advanced Health & Safety management course provides an understanding of the Risk Assessment Process following the HSE's guide '5 Steps to Risk Assessment', and uses case law to define principles including; Absolute, Practicable, Reasonably Practicable and Reasonable.

Our course delves into the meaning behind the thinking of 'reasonably practicable' and looks at how the term 'reasonable man' is defined, and explores the significant differences in law and foreseeability. We look at "What is the Duty of Care, and who does it extend to?", Case Law is used to explain key principles such as an employer's duty of care cannot be delegated, individual duty of care and personal liability (criminal).

We also discuss vicarious liability and which sections of the 'Health & Safety at Work etc. Act 1974' are used to prosecute individuals, exploring in detail the powers of the enforcing authorities.

We also walk through accident management, communication and health & safety culture and identify vulnerability, disability and how they should be incorporated into the Risk Assessment process.

  Health and Safety For Managers
We talk about identification of initial risk and residual risk factors, and how calculations (although not compulsory) may be used to enhance your understanding and observation of priorities, while defining and explaining the Hierarchy of Control.

This course explores the common failures of risk assessments, and addresses the four fundamental ingredients to be considered; People, Equipment, Materials and the Environment.

In addition to the health and safety management principles, we take a closer look at common workplace hazards, and provide a greater detail of explanation concerning each subject.

For example, under Hazardous Substances, how Materials Safety data Sheets (MSDS), Long Term (LTEL) and Short Term (STEL) exposure limits are defined as well as the change between Occupational Exposure Limits (OEL) terms, ensuring an understanding of the common terms used in health and safety management today. We also cover explanation of the different types of sampling methods such as including grab, static and personal sampling techniques.
