Everyone at work should have an understanding of why they must ‘work safely’ – and this course covers exactly that and much more. Following on from level 1, health and safety level 2 training covers a broader knowledge and understanding of health and safety in the workplace.
Employees also have responsibilities under health and safety law to:
- take care of their own health and safety and that of others
- co-operate with you to help you comply with health and safety legislation
- follow any instructions or health and safety training you provide
- tell you about any work situations that present a serious and imminent risk
- let you know about any other failings they identify in your health and safety arrangements
