Health and Safety qualifications for employment

NCFE’s suite of short courses in Health and Safety are a great way for employers to meet basic training needs and keep everyone safe and happy in the workplace.

These QCF qualifications are regulated by Ofqual, and adhere to Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidelines around training employees on Health and Safety in the workplace.

They’re competitively priced and each qualification comes with a set of free learning resources, which will not only assist in the delivery of the qualifications but will keep your learners engaged, interested and learning.

Who are these qualifications suitable for?

The qualifications are available to learners of any age and can be used in any workplace environment. What’s more, each qualification is assessed via a multiple choice questionnaire, which is proven to be a quick, easy and effective way of assessing knowledge. This is particularly important for learners who are already in employment and don’t have much time to study.

Principles and Practice of Safe Manual Handling for the Workplace also includes assessment through a portfolio of evidence, where confirmation of practical manual handling skills can be recorded.
