NSAI offers public courses to help individuals gain the skills that they require to operate management systems effectively. The range of courses offered reflects the wide range of certification services offered by NSAI.

Irrespective of whether a company is involved in manufacture or is a service organisation, it has a statutory obligation - under the Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act, 2005 - to operate in a manner which safeguards the health and safety of its workforce.

This one-day course will enable participants to assess the implications of the Act and its associated regulations and to understand what their responsibilities for complying with the Act are.

The course will address the implications of the Act for employees and employers in terms of increased obligations for safety, increased powers for the HSA and substantially increased penalties for breaches of the legislation. The Act carries penalties of up to 3million and prison sentences of up to 2 years for those breaking the law.

On completing this course the participant will be able to -

Understand the legal framework within which occupational health and safety operates.
Understand the duties and responsibilities of both management and employees.

Gain an appreciation of the significance of health and safety legislation in the context of OHSAS 18001 - the health and safety management system.
