Look out for our Take Five for Health and Safety – a series of bitesize videos on one specific aspect of Health and Safety at work which will take no more than 5-10 minutes to watch. We will share one short video every month with a focus on a specific aspect of H&S or on any new developments as and when they occur.
One of the many things we’ve taken away from 2020 is how vital online learning has become in maintaining access to education when we couldn’t attend classroom sessions. At Cambridge Safety we’re taking online learning in our stride, offering a range of interactive content to ensure a dynamic, engaging experience for those that want to learn practical skills.
In our first video in the series, we’re taking a look at the 1999 Health and Safety Work Regulations. You can watch the video now over on YouTube – and don’t forget to subscribe to our channel!
The H&S work regulations were introduced into UK law as a result of European Directives. Even with Brexit looming next year, the government is committed to upholding these regulations and making them legally enforceable – so for the foreseeable future they will remain relevant.
The video covers the following points:
- Suitable and sufficient risk assessment
- Principles of prevention
- Health and Safety arrangements
- Health surveillance
- Health and Safety assistance
- Emergency procedures Information and Training
- Cooperation and coordination
- Who is ultimately responsible for H&S in the workplace
We hope you enjoy watching this video and learn a thing or two about H&S in the workplace. Stay tuned for next month’s topic.
