Organising for Health and Safety Online Course Spring 2022

23 February – 30 March 2022

Our Organising for Health and Safety course is essential for new health and safety representatives. We have transformed our classroom based course into an online course, delivered by experienced TUC tutors.

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 Wednesday from 23 February to 30 March.  It is delivered in one online session per week via Microsoft Teams. The course equates to a total of 30 learning hours through a combination of online webinar tutorials, research and written feedback.
