Code: SGC/19/656 Health & Safety for Managers

The South Gloucestershire Council Health and Safety team is pleased to offer low cost training for those who have the responsibility to ensure a business complies with health and safety law. There is a legal requirement for all employers to appoint a competent person to take the lead in making sure a business meets its legal responsibilities (Regulation 7, Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999). This is usually a manager or supervisor but can be anyone appointed into this role within a business. We recognise this can be a challenging role for those who work in small/medium sized businesses; here is an opportunity to receive accurate, honest information from the team that inspects your business. You will find we are approachable and keen to help you as much as possible. Who better to give you the answers you need? This course is for managers and supervisors. The standard charge for this course is £40 per day. Please refer to our Course Charges on the Home page for information on discounts and exemptions
