Our suite of Health and Safety qualifications have been created to assist businesses in complying with legal requirements by demonstrating that staff members have been trained in preventative approaches to hazards and in promoting a positive health and safety culture. They are also designed to ensure that all employees are aware of their own responsibilities and how they contribute to the effective maintenance of health and safety policies.
Health and Safety qualifications are suitable for both the public and private sectors.
Archimedes Services provides two levels of Health and Safety qualifications.
The purpose of each level is as follows:
Level 1 ensures that candidates are equipped with a basic knowledge of health and safety in their workplace, including the duties under UK Health and Safety legislation. These qualifications include:
- HABC Level 1 Award in Principles of Health and Safety in the Workplace (QCF)
- Level 1 Award in Health and Safety for Catering
- Level 1 Award in Health and Safety for Retail
- Level 1 Award in Health and Safety for Carers
Level 2 provides candidates with knowledge of practices that are essential in the workplace. This includes the hazards and risks presented in the workplace along with the relevant legislation, and ensures awareness of cost-effective, practical control methods. The Level 2 qualification offered by us is the HABC Level 2 Award in Health and Safety in the Workplace (QCF).
HABC Level 1 Awards in Health and Safety
The HABC Level 1 Awards in Health and Safety have been developed to ensure that employees are equipped with a basic knowledge of health and safety in their workplace, including the duties under UK health and safety legislation.
These qualifications require no former knowledge of Health and Safety and are therefore ideal as part of a company health and safety induction programme, but it could also form part of ongoing refresher training designed to improve the health and safety culture in a workplace.
These qualifications suit a diverse group of individuals ranging from those working in large multinationals to those working in small businesses. Candidates can also use the qualification as part of relevant courses being taken in schools and colleges.
