Course description

Who should attend?

The course is designed for managers, supervisors, business owners, and anyone responsible for health and safety for small and medium-size businesses.

Candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2). While we are often able to provide support to people who do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number of people who require assistance. We may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please contact us if you need any guidance.
