An Introduction to Health and Safety at Work is designed to teach both employees and employers why health and safety in the workplace is so important in relation to the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992, as amended by the Health and Safety Miscellaneous Amendments Regulations 2002 places significant responsibilities upon employers for the health and safety of their staff. This course has been developed to enable organisations comply with the law by providing learners with an increased understanding of health and safety relating to display screen equipment and workstations.
