Course Brief

The Course The contents of this course fall essentially into two parts.  The first part is with general aspects of health and safety management, such as its organisation, its application and its relationship to the management of other aspects of an organisation.  Whilst the second part discussed the actual management of risk itself, the techniques, training and organisational requirements to do this effectively.  The two parts together form a total system for the proper and effective management of health and safety.
