According to the latest figures from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), during 2016/17 over 31 million working days were lost due to work-related ill health and non-fatal workplace injuries, at a cost of over £15 billion to the British economy.
Given the scale of the issue, knowledge regarding health and safety in the workplace is crucial. Legal practitioners and HR professionals must understand health and safety law if they are to be able to protect themselves and their clients being exposed to liability. Datalaw’s health and safety law courses can help.
Delivered by former HR professional and Aston university lecturer Kathy Daniels, the health & safety training courses within this section can be accessed for a period of 12-months using any internet device and represent a convenient way for practitioners to get up to speed in this area of practice.
The course Health and Safety: An Overview is an invaluable health and safety awareness course which will provide viewers with an introduction to health and safety law and will offer insights from both criminal and civil law perspectives. The way in which health and safety law can be enforced is also considered.
Health and safety law course Health and Safety: Examining the Regulations in More Detail will provide viewers with an in-depth examination of key health and safety legislation including the 'six pack', RIDDOR and COSHH and will assist those who would like to develop their knowledge of health and safety law and the regulations which govern this field of practice.
Of the 31 million working days lost during 2016/17, 12.5 million working days were attributed to stress, depression or anxiety, therefore it is essential that health and safety law practitioners and those who manage employees are familiar with the issues associated with stress and know how to manage stress effectively in the workplace. Steph Barber of Law Hound will discuss the signs which practitioners should look out for during the bite-size health and safety law course Mental Health Awareness in the Workplace.
