Course Overview

Health and Safety Committees (HSCs) allow businesses to work together with workers on health and safety matters. The main functions of a committee are to facilitate cooperation in developing and carrying out measures to improve the health and safety of workers. Not all members of organisations are aware of, or understand the purpose, functions or responsibilities of the HSC. After attending this training they will, as our course is focused on detailing those responsibilities and how to form and function as a health and safety committee.
