Health and Safety Instructor Course
Our Health and Safety Instructor course covers a general overview of health and safety requirements that should be imparted into the workforce. It will provide a broad and comprehensive overview of best practice in health and safety training techniques.
Our Health and Safety Instructor course is aimed at employees within an organisation who have been tasked with training other colleagues in health and safety (which could include delivering health and safety inductions). It is targeted at those new to training health and safety, and could also be ideal for those wishing to update their skills.
