Health and Safety Awareness (HSA)
WHO IS THE WORKSHOP DESIGNED FOR

It provides a practical summary to Health & Safety, welfare and environmental issues identifying individual responsibilities for looking after themselves and others, what the employer’s duties are and what should be done if they think anyone’s health and safety is being put at risk.
This course is an ideal introduction for obtaining a basic understanding of health and safety duties and responsibilities and becoming aware of hazards and risks on site. Upon successful completion of this course, a natural progression would be the Site Supervisors’ Safety Training Scheme course (two days).

– Understand the need to prevent accidents
– Have an understanding of the Health and Safety law
– Identify how their role fits in with the control and management of the site
– Understand the need for risk assessments and understand the need for method statements
– Appreciate the need to perform safely and stop to ask for advice if not sure
– Feel obliged to report unsafe acts to prevent an accident

Where a delegate has achieved between 70%-77% (21-23 out of 30) in the examination or has achieved the 80% pass rate but failed the safety critical questions, the delegate may re-sit the test. The test can either be on the same day or by resitting the exam by attending another course on the final day within a 90-day period (the delegate is not obliged to re-do the day’s course). o99 Training Academy must make the arrangements with the delegate and ensure that the same examination paper is not used twice.
When a delegate scores less than 67% (20 correct answers out of 30) in the final examination, the delegate must attend the full HSA course again before they are allowed to re-sit the test.
