LEVEL 2 AWARD IN HEALTH & SAFETY IN THE WORK PLACE (QCF)
The aim of the Level 2 Award in Health and Safety in the Workplace qualification is to provide candidates with knowledge of the basic Health and Safety 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 qualification is applicable for any private or public sector working environment and provides employees with an awareness of their own safety, as well as the safety of customers, contractors and members of the public.
The achievement of the Level 2 Award in Health and Safety in the Workplace qualification will enable learners to work safely and to recognise and deal with hazards in the workplace.
The Ofqual approved Level 2 Award in Health and Safety in the Workplace qualification has been developed specifically for insertion onto the Qualifications and Credit Framework with full support from Proskills. It is therefore fully cognisant with industry and regulatory standards as well as being recognized by The Health and Safety Executive, Auditors and other Enforcement Officers.
