All employers have a duty of care to their employees under the Health and Safety at Work Etc Act 1974.

It is essential under this legislation that the employer provides instruction, information, training and supervision. For employees to work in a safe environment they require induction training, and this course teaches the basic health and safety information for any business.

Who is it designed for?

This course teaches employees, their responsibilities in the workplace, and their duties to their employer and others who may be affected by their acts and omissions. It serves as an essential introduction and grounding for supervisors and managers, who have no health and safety knowledge, and may wish to attend IOSH or NEBOSH courses in the future.
