Now available a dedicated Driver Safety awareness course designed to cover your companies commitment in providing road safety advice for all your drivers, from LGV to company car drivers both private and company owned vehicles.

COURSE COVERS THE FOLLOWING:

The Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 is a landmark in law. For the first time, companies and organisations can be found guilty of corporate manslaughter as a result of serious management failures resulting in a gross breach of a duty of care.

The Act, which came into force on 6 April 2008, clarifies the criminal liabilities of companies including large organisations where serious failures in the management of health and safety result in a fatality.

This course is aimed at people with strategic responsibilities for health & safety and prepare Senior Management for the new Homicide legislation

Can also be used to introduce all your staff to the new legislation

Prosecutions will be of the corporate body and not individuals, but the liability of directors, board members or other individuals under health and safety law or general criminal law, will be unaffected. And the corporate body itself and individuals can still be prosecuted for separate health and safety offences.

The Act also largely removes the Crown immunity that applied to the previous common law corporate manslaughter offence. This is welcome, and consistent with Government and HSE policy to secure the eventual removal of Crown immunity for health and safety offences. The Act provides a number of specific exemptions that cover public policy decisions and the exercise of core public functions.

Companies and organisations should keep their health and safety management systems under review, in particular, the way in which their activities are managed and organised by senior management. The Institute of Directors and HSE have published guidance for directors on their responsibilities for health and safety - this course will help identify these requirements.

Hazardous substance incidents can affect many people including operators, people working nearby, others on site and members of the public. Systems for the control and safe use of substances are crucial to the safe operating procedures in any workplace where substances are used, stored, handled, transported or disposed of regardless of the quantities involved.

Hazardous substances are used in many workplaces and may lead to a wide range of conditions including dermatitis, asthma, and disease. Around 10,000 people die each year from work-related ill health and many of these deaths are due to exposure to substances hazardous to health.

Under the control of Substances Hazardous to Heath Regulations employers must prevent or control exposure, assess the risks to the workforce and others, maintain controls and monitor workplaces and individuals, they must also provide information instruction and training to anyone that may be exposed.

  • Identifying hazardous substances in the workplace
  • Routes of entry into the body
  • Health effects of hazardous substances and their causes

  • REACH and Control options

Remember: Always try to prevent exposure at source. For example:

  • Can you avoid using a hazardous substance or use a safer process ? preventing exposure, eg using water-based rather than solvent-based products, applying by brush rather than spraying?
  • Can you substitute it for something safer ? eg swap an irritant cleaning product for something milder, or using a vacuum cleaner rather than a brush?
  • Can you use a safer form, eg can you use a solid rather than liquid to avoid splashes or a waxy solid instead of a dry powder to avoid dust?

This training module will help you understand the risk and look at ways to avoid them.

online Fire Warden Training ideal for refresher training via our free to use learning management system;, or are looking for Hands on Training! if so, why not let us visit your location and provide you with a custom inhouse course to match your exact needs.

In fire safety we often hear the terms 'fire marshal and fire warden', and there is often much confusion between the names, roles, and requirement of each.

So first of all, what is the difference between a fire warden and fire marshal?

Often there is no difference at all between the roles people are asked to carry out as a fire warden and a fire marshal.

Organisations may appoint fire marshal, or fire wardens, or both.

In organisations that appoint either / or, these nominate people will usually carry out the same duties.

Both have fire safety responsibilities, and both need to have adequate fire safety awareness and training. In organisations that appoint both, they usually will identify a difference between the two roles.

In this scenario, Fire Wardens will usually have day to day fire management duties. Duties will include spot checks, risk assessment, reporting and monitoring of fire safety within the workplace. A pro-active fire safety role.

Fire Marshals on the other hand, will have more of a re-active fire safety role. In the event of a fire, they will take charge of alarms, evacuation, firefighting procedures and roll calls.

Where only one or the other role is appointed, chances are the fire marshal or fire warden will carry out both roles, overseen by the ultimate person responsible for fire safety in the premises (the ‘responsible person’).

There is no clear definition of each role. In fact, there is no reference at all to the roles of fire marshal or fire warden in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO), which places fire safety duties on organisations in England and Wales.

What the RRFSO does require, is for the responsible person to nominate sufficient numbers of competent people within the organisation to assist with fire safety duties.

15. (b) nominate a sufficient number of competent persons to implement those procedures in so far as they relate to the evacuation of relevant persons from the premises.

Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005

The duties these nominated people will need to assist with include firefighting and fire detection, evacuation, and provide fire safety assistance.

Whether these nominated persons are called fire marshals, fire wardens or any other name is a choice made within the business.

This e-Learning course has been specially commissioned to support those who work with client’s personal information.

  • Evaluate your own practice with regards to confidentiality and data protection
  • Describe the principles of good record keeping, keeping records secure and the correct retention and disposal periods
  • Identify and discuss examples where records have not been kept properly and explain the potential consequences of this

Employees must also be aware of patient information pathways, and the correct procedures for the provision of information prescriptions. This extends to the policies surrounding Subject Access Requests (SARs), and the period within which they must be handled.

This CDP module is a course ideal for anyone wishing to gain an introduction to the subject of health and safety risk assessment. Employees in any sector will find a working knowledge of health and safety issues to be a valuable resource for themselves and their organisations. This training will encourage employees to be proactive about risk assessment, in order to prevent accidents and ill health.

Risk management involves you, the employer, looking at the risks that arise in the workplace and then putting sensible health and safety measures in place to control them. By doing this you can protect your most valuable asset, your employees, as well as members of the public from harm. During 2004/05, 220 people were killed and over 150,000 were injured at work because of a failure to manage risk.

On completion of this training you will be able to:

  • Define the meaning of the terms hazard, risk and risk assessment
  • Describe the legal requirements for risk assessment
  • Identify hazards and those who may be harmed
  • Describe the processes for the evaluation and control of risks
  • Describe the systems used to record, review and revise risk assessments

As an employer, the law requires you to assess and manage health and safety risks - for most businesses this is not difficult to do, you should adopt the Five Steps to Risk Assessment approach to help you. This is not the only way to do a risk assessment, there are other methods that work well, particularly for more complex risks and circumstances. However, HSE believe this method is the most straightforward for most organisations. source HSE.
