Health and Safety in the Workplace level 2

Did you know that 31.2 million working days were lost due to work-related illnesses and workplace injury in 2016/17?
It is an employer’s duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees and other people who might be affected by their business. This includes providing sufficient information, instruction and training to employees to allow them to work in a way that does not put themselves or others at risk.
