Intermediate Certificate in Supervising Health & Safety

Health and safety involves reducing the risks of accident and ill health associated with work activities, whether they affect employees, employers, the self-employed, visitors or the public.

Accidents and illnesses can result in permanent disability or death, as well as short term incapacity for work. The supervisor is in an ideal and very responsible position where employees can be influenced, monitored and trained, and managers can be informed, persuaded, encouraged or pressured into providing for better health and safety standards. A supervisor has a legal and moral responsibility to look after the health and safety of employees, but needs to have the knowledge and skill to be able to do this effectively.

This training programme provides an opportunity to look more deeply into general health and safety from a supervisory perspective, and successful candidates will be able to help their organisation whatever the size or activity in improving the health and safety culture.

What do our clients say about us?

The team at Hygiene Management Solutions identified our training needs and developed a food safety course specifically for our business at no added cost. The results of this were that staff felt that the training was relevant, were able to immediately put the knowledge gained into practice and it was delivered in a way that made them feel relaxed and valued. A further benefit to the company was that our training time was halved as the course only dealt with relevant information and of course this meant that our training costs were also halved. We pack fruit for all the major supermarket chains in the UK which means that we have tight deadlines to keep, making time very important to us. We could not have asked for a better result and Hygiene Management Solutions really did find the solution to our problem.
