Although a basic course, the content is quite substantial and covers the following areas:

  • Moral, legal and financial reasons for Health and Safety
  • Identification of a Hazard
  • Identification of a Risk
  • The Differences between near misses and accidents
  • The 5 steps to Risk assessment
  • Principles of prevention
  • Control measures
  • Practical exercise

If successful, a certificate will be issued. This will help the Employer to address certain legal requirements by being able to demonstrate employee competency. A course handout is also provided for future reference.


The standard course is intended to last for ½ a day. Bespoke courses can also be discussed upon application.


The course is generally held at our Head Office at Harworth, however we are also able to utilise other Certex locations, or hold courses at Client premises if adequate facilities are available.
