Overview

A standardised, endorsed, national core curriculum is a key means to deliver cost-effective training with minimised retraining as people move between organisations. Accidents can have many serious consequences on an individual’s health, family and social life, as well as having a major financial impact. This is why it is important to do all we can to avoid accidents in the workplace. Everyone has a legal duty for each other’s safety at work. Employers and employees must work together to make sure we maintain a safe work environment.
