Covered in this course
This training course is broken down into 3 sections
- 1 Responsibilities
- 2 Slips & Trips
- 3 Falls
Both you and your employer have a legal obligation towards the health and safety of all workers, visitors, and members of the public who might be affected by the work being carried out – this includes preventing slips, trips, and falls. In this section, we will look at everyone's responsibilities, hazards and the accident book.
Slips and Trips are the most common cause of injury to employees in the workplace, but they also cause over half of all injuries to members of the public in open workplaces – like shops and hospitals. The rest of this section is all about slip and trip hazards and the responsibility you have to deal with them.
Falls from height can be incredibly dangerous and are the leading cause of workplace fatalities. They’re also responsible for countless spinal injuries, broken bones, twisted ankles, sprains, and strains. In the rest of this section, we’re going to see what you need to do to stay safe whilst using them.

Quiz mechanics are frustrating
When doing multiple point questions in most places online you can select the option you want and maybe change before pressing submit. I have found on a lot of these modules that I read option a as a plausible answer and clicked it, moved on to b which is also plausible and then c which is "either of the above" or something like that. So normally I would change to c before submitting as with pretty much any web form. Unfotunately as soon as I click on a the answer is submitted and marked wrong. Its makes the test a bit of a frustrating experience as it is not consistent with most websites.

Good educational course. Good length and useful to be able to complete in small sections.
The course is well presented and covers all relevant aspects of the topic.
A bit long winded
1 error ..... check question 3. There were 2 identical answers A & C. I selected A which flagged up as wrong!!!

i) the health, safety and welfare at work of all his employees
ii) the provision of such information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety at work of his employees;
