Our Organising for Health and Safety course is essential for new health and safety representatives. We are now offering an option whereby reps can complete the whole course in one week.  Our online course is delivered by experienced TUC tutors at West Thames College via Microsoft Teams.

You will learn about health and safety legislation, including the law relating to risk assessment, and your employer’s responsibilities. It will help you work with members to tackle workplace issues and develop your confidence to represent them effectively.

The course runs every day 10am – 3pm from the 18th to the 22nd of November inclusive and you will work collaboratively with other reps. The course equates to a total of 30 learning hours through a combination of online webinar tutorials, research and assessed feedback, it is accredited by the Open College Network and is worth 6 credits.
