Health and Safety courses at The Manchester College

Health and Safety courses at The Manchester College

Health and safety laws might get a bad press from the anti-PC brigade, but in the world of work, this is an increasingly valued area of management. Companies recognise that protecting their employees from harm, and protecting themselves from the law courts, is a priority. It's why people who can bring a health and safety qualification to a business are in demand.

The Manchester College is the place to study health and safety if you live in the North West. It has an extensive portfolio of courses in this area, from one day programmes to two-year professional qualifications.

If you want to gain a skill that will get the attention of a new employer or whoever hands out the promotions in your current workplace, it's a good option. It can also lead to a new and rewarding career in the growing health and safety industry.

A nationally recognised qualification in this area tells employers that you know how to reduce the number of accidents, create a culture of safe working, and as a result, save the company money.

The Manchester College is the place to study health and safety if you live in the North West. It has an extensive portfolio of courses in this area, from one day programmes to two-year professional qualifications. And its teachers have a vast knowledge of health and safety in the workplace. Many are health and safety practitioners and corporate members of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).

The Manchester College's most popular course for people who want to strengthen their management skills, rather than become a health and safety professional, is the IOSH course in Managing Safely. It gets you up to speed on the practical actions you need to take to handle health and safety in your team, and the certificate allows your employer to meet the requirement of Health and Safety Law.

At The Manchester College you can do the IOSH Managing Safely course in four days (one day a week for four weeks). It costs £495.

But if you're considering pursuing a new career in health and safety and want to gain a more indepth knowledge of the area, the NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety is a better choice.

It's the most widely held health and safety qualification in the UK with over 100,000 supervisors, managers, team leaders and staff opting for this certificate. The course gives you a broad understanding of health and safety issues and teaches you to manage risks effectively at work.

Many people take this qualification as a first step in becoming a health and safety advisor – a varied, challenging career which suits people who want the satisfaction of making a difference to people's health.

At The Manchester College, you can gain the NEBOSH general certificate through a 14 day course (one day a week for 14 weeks). It costs ?1,205.

Both of these courses are a realistic, cost-effective, and enjoyable way to improve your career options. Bookings are being taken now for summer courses. Click here to find out more.
