The course is designed for those who need to manage safely and effectively in compliance with the recently revised Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999. The new legislation requires you to appoint a competent person to assist with health and safety responsibilities and your organisation’s health and safety policy. This person needs to be identified on the new Health and Safety Poster.
