All workplaces inevitably contain hazards that affect health and safety if not carefully controlled. Whether the risk comes from fire, workstation equipment or stress and anxiety, all employers have a duty to protect their staff from harm. Likewise, there is an onus on employees to take responsibility for their own safety as well as the welfare of their colleagues. Sadly, ignorance can affect lives if health and safety regulations are flouted.

This Health and Safety for Office Workers online course has been developed by training professionals, Espirita, and demonstrates the fundamental need for awareness of the risks and hazards that can be encountered in an office environment. It seeks to equip employers and employees with the knowledge to assess, manage and prevent risks in their workplace, in line with latest UK legislation.
