The Comprehensive Curriculum

Introducing Working Safely: In the realm of work, safety is not merely a compliance checkbox but a fundamental right and duty. It transcends mere obligation, emerging as a cornerstone of ethical operation. At its heart, the responsibility for fostering a safe and healthy workplace is shared among all who enter the organisation’s doors. This module unravels each individual’s layered responsibilities—be it a worker, manager, or owner. From the individual’s actions to the organisation’s overarching duties, we explore how safety and health intertwine every aspect of work life.

Defining Hazards and Risk: Learners are guided through identifying potential hazards and assessing risks, providing a solid framework for risk management.

Identifying Common Hazards: The lexicon of safety is rich and nuanced, with terms like ‘hazard’, ‘risk’, and ‘risk assessment’ serving as its foundational pillars. This module demystifies these concepts, categorising hazards into six broad groups and shedding light on those lurking in the shadows, less apparent yet equally perilous. Through a pragmatic lens, we examine ‘risk’—evaluating the likelihood and consequence of harm—and how to navigate these waters through ‘reasonably practicable’ measures. Deciding on the course of action to control risk is a nuanced art guided by thorough assessment and informed decision-making.

Improving Safety Performance: The crescendo of our course is a call to action: enhancing safety and health within the workplace. This module delves into the strategies organisations can employ to elevate their safety performance, highlighting the pivotal role of worker involvement and the transformative power of attitudes and behaviours. We explore the architecture of safe work systems, the significance of permits, the language of safety signs, and the armoury of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Beyond the confines of the workplace, we consider the safety and health implications for visitors, contractors, and the broader public, underscoring the communal nature of safety.
