Level 3 Award in Health and Safety

Health and Safety for supervisors

The Level 3 Award in Health and Safety in the Workplace is aimed at supervisors, managers, team leaders as well as individuals wishing to advance their health and safety knowledge.
The qualification is intended for learners already working in the capacity of supervisor, manager or team leader and also those who are preparing to start work at this level.

Persons gaining this qualification will know that supervisors, managers and team leaders have legal and moral obligations to ensure health and safety within a business, and that this includes obligations to employees, contractors, visitors and suppliers. Its syllabus areas are regarded by the Health and Safety Executive as being important to developing and maintaining safe working procedures in the workplace.

Topics covered:

  • Understand the requirements for health, safety and welfare in the workplace
  • Understand the benefits of using a safety management system
  • Understand the principles of risk assessment
  • Understand the risks and control methods for common workplace hazards

The course is delivered in a classroom environment with group work and practical exercises. Workbooks are provided and candidates are encouraged to make additional notes. Completion of the course is subject to a multiple choice examination.

The course can be delivered over 2 or 3 days, depending on experience and customer requirements. However, we recommend that learners have completed a Level 2 health and safety qualification or have significant safety experience.
