The qualification is ideal for supervisors, team leaders, department heads and junior managers, providing them with the practical knowledge and understanding necessary to their role in promoting health and safety in the workplace.

Our trainers and health and safety consultants are qualified and experienced health and safety professionals with a broad experience of the health and safety industry to complement their training skills. All consultants hold professional membership of the chartered Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and a professional trainer's qualification such as the PTLLS certificate.
The course will be delivered over two days.
Candidates will be registered with the British Safety Council. After the course, they will receive a risk assessment task electronically which must be completed in their own workplace. Candidates submit their completed risk assessment task electronically to the British Safety Council from where it is forwarded to an external examiner for marking. Results and certificates are issued within ten working days.
Upon successful completion of the risk assessment task delegates will be awarded a British Safety Council Level 2 Award in Supervising Staff Safely.
